Health officials say teen girls are getting better at using effective birth control

Federal health officials say teenage girls are getting better at using birth control.

Researchers from the National Survey of Family Growth, found about 60% of sexually active teens say they use some form of effective birth control like pills, rings, and patches.

The C.D.C. says the number of teens who say they're sexually active has gone down by 16%, and that combined with use of birth control, has likely led to a drop in teen pregnancy.
