Cross-sectional survey data from 462 female adolescents were analyzed to determine associations between impulsiveness and sexual risk behaviors and related outcomes. Higher impulsiveness was significantly associated with early age of first sexual intercourse, higher number of sexual partners, non-use of contraception and condoms, and prior Chlamydia infection.
