  Teen-age Sexuality and Public Morality
And a teenage girl absorbs the idea that a woman is someone who is sexually desirable to a man; her worth lies in her value as a sexual commodity and her ability to control the male with the sexual favors she provides.
Repeated efforts are made to regulate sexual behavior by punitive measures, such as the "squeal" regulation that would require a medical facility to inform parents when an underage girl seeks medical help if she is pregnant or if she wants to obtain contraceptives.
The problems of teen-age sexuality and the fact that conservative political and religious groups have put these problems on their agendas suggest that it is urgent for mainline denominations and liberal churches to recover a credible voice in matters of human sexuality -- both the ethical and the practical.

 TAP: Vol 7, Iss. 24. Does Liberalism Cause Sex?. Jane Mauldon.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
In 1964 only one- third of sexually active 15- to 19-year-olds used protection during their first sexual experiences, while 40 percent did nothing to prevent pregnancy for at least a year after their first sexual intercourse.
The unsurprising result is that a smaller fraction of the sexually active teens became pregnant with every year that passed between 1972 and 1990.
The proportion of all teens who were sexually active and who waited some months to use contraception did indeed grow between 1964 and 1980, but their numbers fell during the 1980s.

 1 in 5 Sexually Active Girls Suffers Violence
Researchers found nearly one in five sexually active adolescent girls was intentionally hurt by a date in the previous year compared with less than one in 25 girls without any sexual experience.
The study also suggests that girls who are sexually active and who are a victim of dating violence are more likely to be experience other sexual health risks, such as sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy.
In addition, researchers found that sexually active girls who reported being hurt by a date in the previous year were almost twice as likely than other girls to report having been pregnant.

 University of Pittsburgh researchers find frequency of chlamydia screening in sexually active teenage women inadequate
Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States; almost every major medical association recommends that sexually active young women get tested yearly for the disease.
The study also found that physicians were less likely to screen their patients for chlamydia if they believed that the majority of their 18-year-old patients were not sexually active or if they believed the prevalence of chlamydia is too low to make screening useful.
They also encourage sexually active young women to be sure they are getting a chlamydia test whenever they have a routine gynecologic examination.

 Trends, 1997: SD 4.2 Sexually Active Teens
Having become sexually experienced does not necessarily mean a teenager will be sexually active from that point on.
Nevertheless, research indicates that once a person has had sex, they are likely to continue to be sexually active; among young adults aged 18-22 who had ever had intercourse, over 70 percent had a second experience of intercourse within six months of first intercourse.
The percentage of teens in grades 9-12 who are sexually active — defined as having had sexual intercourse in the previous three months — has remained steady at 38 percent from 1991 to 1995 (see Table SD 4.2).

 Sexually Active Teenagers Are More Likely to Be Depressed and to Attempt Suicide   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
By contrast, only one-third of sexually active teens asserted that their commencement of sexual activity was appropriate and that they did not wish they had waited until they were older.
However, as a general interpretation of the linkage between depression and teen sexual activ­ity, this reasoning seems inadequate for two rea­sons.First, as Table 1 shows, the differences in happiness and depression between sexually active and inactive teens are widespread and are not the result of a small number of depressed individuals.
When depression or attempted suicide are treated as dependent variables, and sexual activity, gender, age, race, and income are included as independent variables, the odds ratio (or predictive impact) of the sexual activity variable on the dependent vari­ables remains statistically indistinguishable from a model that only includes the sexual activity vari­able.

 Teen Advice Online: "Tell Gyno, I'm Sexually Active With Oral Sex?"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Does oral sex even count as being sexually active because whenever you get needles or something like that, they always ask you if you are sexually active so now I don't know what I am supposed to say.
As far as the sexually active question, I think most doctors are referring to sexual intercourse when they ask about sexual activity, but if you have any questions, as them what their definition of sexual activity is.
However, some diseases are not only transmitted through sexual activity - for example, HIV can be transmitted by a needle prick so you cannot say that you are 100 % safe from diseases just because he has not been sexually active since his last test.

 Sexually Active Teens Miss Chance to Prevent Spina Bifida
A study done on sexually active women, primarily fls and Hispanics in Houston, shows that relatively few are consuming enough folic acid either through diet or folic acid supplements.
If they do not get at least 400 micrograms of folic acid each day before and during their pregnancy, women face higher risks of having a baby with neural tube defects such as spina bifida.
Experts recommend that women who are sexually active during their childbearing years take enough folic acid every day, in case they become pregnant.

 You're having intercourse   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
It is my understanding that someone who would define themselves as sexually active is someone who has had sex and is currently involved in a relationship involving intercourse.
Those who are sexually active I would say would classify themselves as such if they are currently involved in a physical relationship involving sexual intercourse.
If you asked a virgin who was involved in a physical relationship without any intercourse if they are sexually active, their response, I would imagine, would be "no" simply because the term "sexually active" usually has some kind of association with the actual act of sexual intercourse.

 Rh096: Parents' viewpoint on reproductive health and contraceptive practice among sexually active adolescents   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The viewpoint of parents on reproductive health, specifically their attitude towards contraceptive use among sexually active adolescent daughters and general opinion on adolescent pregnancy, was examined.
However, most parents or guardians do not discuss sexual matters with their daughters or wards (Briggs 1994) [2], as a result of shyness, ignorance on sexual matters or societal norms that do not encourage open mother-with-daughter discussion on sexual matters.
In countries where the level of sexual activity among adolescents is relatively high the discouragement of contraceptive usage by sexually active adolescents leaves a large number of adolescents unprotected.

 Sexually Active Postmenopausal Women May Benefit from Continued Pap Screenings
Washington, DC -- Unmarried sexually active postmenopausal women may benefit from continuing to have cervical cancer screening even if they have previously had normal cervical cytology results, according to research published in the August issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Researchers found that the overall annual incidence rate of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion or cervical cancer was significantly higher among sexually active unmarried postmenopausal women than among either unmarried postmenopausal women who were not sexually active or married postmenopausal women.
They conclude that cervical cytology screening every three years is appropriate for low-risk postmenopausal women (married or not sexually active) with normal cytology screenings, but that sexually active unmarried elderly women may benefit from continuing to get Pap screenings, even if they have previously had normal cervical cytology.

 Pap Tests Advised for Sexually Active Older Unmarried Women - CME Teaching Brief® - MedPage Today
Explain to interested patients that postmenopausal patients who are sexually active and not married or living in a "married" relationship, may benefit from a Pap smear.
Unmarried older women or those not living as married who are sexually active have an increased risk of high-grade cervical abnormalities and cervical cancer compared with married women or those not sexually active, according to a report in the August issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
For low-risk postmenopausal women (married or not sexually active) with normal cytology screening, the investigators agreed that triennial screening would be appropriate because the absolute risk of undiagnosed cervical cancer within three years of a normal smear is very low.

Improvements are needed in screening of sexually active young women for chlamydia infection
In the year 2000, health insurance plans were asked to collect data on their rate of chlamydia screening of sexually active women aged 15 to 25 years, when this screening was added to other evaluative measures of the Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS).
Mangione-Smith and her colleagues studied screening rates of 19,214 sexually active females (identified by records of pregnancy, treatment of other STDs, etc.) aged 15 to 25 years who were enrolled during 1997 in one of four major U.S. health plans and visited a health care provider during that year.

Patients should be instructed to avoid sexual intercourse until they and their sex partners are cured (i.e., until therapy is completed and patient and partner[s] no longer have symptoms).
Infection is almost always sexually transmitted, but the incubation period is variable and it is often difficult to determine the source of infection.
Because genital HPV is common among persons who have been sexually active and because the duration of infectivity is unknown, the value of disclosing a past diagnosis of genital HPV infection to future partners is unclear.
