Reasons for condom utilization among high-risk adolescent girls.
Two hundred forty-eight adolescent girls responded to a list of 30 statements describing reasons for using and not using condoms.
For 24 of the statements, most adolescents (>70%) gave the same response regarding why they did or did not use condoms.
Therefore, only the six remaining statements were used in further analyses.
The relationship between the six statements and psychosexual history, condom use, and sexually transmitted disease (STD) history was examined.
Those adolescent girls who had been sexually active longer were more likely to report lack of enjoyment as a reason that they did not use condoms (P<. 03), and those adolescents who had been sexually active less time were more likely to report personal (P<. 005) and partner (P<. 0006) enjoyment of sex with condoms as a reason for using condoms.
