BORUCHOVITCH, Evely. Factors associated with the non-utilization of contraceptives in adolescence. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1992, vol.26, n.6, pp.437-443. ISSN 1518-8787.

The literature concerning the major correlates of the non-utilization contraceptives in adolescence is critically reviewed. Research findings are analyzed and discussed in terms of their contribution not only to a deeper understanding of adolescents' risk-taking sexual behavior, but also to the implementation of more effective and realistic sexual education for this age-group.

Keywords : Adolescence; Contraceptive behavior; Sex education.
