Seven out of ten of the adolescents included in the study had experienced unsafe sex with a new partner. Afterwards, 48 % worried about STD and 31 % worried about pregnancy.Teenagers calculate the risk of contracting STD from the looks and the reputation of a new partner.Young women and men agree, that both share responsibility for the use of condoms, but more often the young women initiate the use of condoms.Many participants found it more embarrassing to buy condoms than to use them.The participants hoped for improved education in schools and less expensive condoms. The adolescents possessed good knowledge concerning how to protect themselves, but changes in attitudes are needed. School and youth clinics play important roles in this process.
