Sexually active adolescents, and especially those who receive negative pregnancy test results, are a self-identified group at particularly high risk for STIs and unintended pregnancies. Although reproductive health care alone will not totally prevent the occurrence of teen pregnancy and STIs, providing care that is accessible and designed to be teen-friendly will help diminish this area of health risk for hundreds of thousands of U.S. adolescents. Clinical interventions that are theoretically sound and based on research allow for the development of innovative, individualized, and evolving models of adolescent health care to address the needs of a challenging group of patients within a changing and competitive health care environment.
