A fifth of sexually active Brit girls get pregnant at least once before 18

A survey has shown that almost one fifth of sexually active girls in Britain have been pregnant at least once by the age of 18.


London, July 23 : A survey has shown that almost one fifth of sexually active girls in Britain have been pregnant at least once by the age of 18.

The Department for Education study of thousands of 18-year-olds showed that 18 percent had been pregnant twice, and three percent were pregnant thrice.t also showed that poor teenagers, those with lower GCSE grades, and girls whose parents left school at 16 were more likely to get pregnant by 18.

Just under half the girls opted to keep their baby, while 36 percent had an abortion the figures show.

"Clearly there is still much more to be done so young people make safe and healthy choices. We will set out our next steps in due course," the Sun quoted a Department for Education spokesman as saying.

Figures show the teenage pregnancy rate is 40.6 per 1,000 women under 18 - the lowest for 20 years.
