Adverse childhood experience as a risk factor for adolescent pregnancy in China (pp. 323-329) $45.00
Authors:  Wei Wei and Xiaoming Yu
Abstract:
To determine whether having adverse childhood experience increases the risk of adolescent pregnancy in China. Methods: Using data from 1506 young women between the ages of 15 and 24 who were recruited in the Youth Clinics of 3 maternal care hospitals in three big cities in China. The association between history of adverse childhood experience and adolescent pregnancy was explored using multiple logistic regression analyses. Results: The risk of adolescent pregnancy was significantly higher among subjects with adverse childhood experience. Those who were experienced parents separated or divorced had a 72.0% higher risk of adolescent pregnancy than those without this experience after adjusting for confounding factors. Conclusions: This is the first study in China to demonstrate a relationship between adverse childhood experience and adolescent pregnancy. Greater efforts are needed to increase the awareness about the care of adolescents with adverse childhood experience and expand knowledge as well as relevant life skills about sexual and reproductive health among the vulnerable youth.
