Abstract

A pilot study of a health services program for never‐pregnant high‐school students, which stresses development of incentives for personal involvement in their own health care, reports a low incidence of unintended pregnancy among girls who requested contraceptives. The social and emotional characteristics of those who continued contraceptive use are compared with the small group who had unintended pregnancies. 1978 American Orthopsychiatric Association
