Abstract: 

Improved use of contraception has been intrinsic in the decline of teenaged pregnancies in the United States. Recent advances in contraception, including the development of new progestins and longer-acting reversible methods, have greatly increased the options available for adolescents. By frankly discussing adverse effects, offering clear explanations of noncontraceptive benefits, and developing strategies for improving compliance, providers can play a key role in facilitating successful contraceptive use in young patients.
