A recent negative pregnancy test for teens is just a symptom of a bigger problem.
The latest CDC data from the American Academy of Pediatrics reveals that the prevalence of teen pregnancy has skyrocketed since the mid-1990s.
The CDC also recently released data showing that a whopping 77% of teens were pregnant before age 15.
Now, new research is trying to determine what exactly this “negative pregnancy” test actually does.
The new study from the University of Minnesota looks at the effects of the negative pregnancy pregnancy test and the way it can affect teens.
The study was conducted by Dr. Elizabeth Bischof, an assistant professor in the Department of Health Education, Prevention, and Policy Studies and the co-author of the new study.
She and her colleagues surveyed 1,700 high school students in the Twin Cities.
In this article, Bischoff explains the methodology and the results.
What does a negative pregnancy tests do?
A negative pregnancy testing test is a test that has a negative result.
The positive result indicates that the pregnancy was positive, which is often the case with some type of positive pregnancy test.
This is not the case for the negative result, which indicates that a pregnancy was not positive at all.
“Pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy from anywhere, and they’re very useful when they can detect the signs of pregnancy, such as a miscarriage or a low-risk pregnancy,” Bischob told Bleacher Beat.
The negative pregnancy result is not a diagnostic test.
This means that it’s not a test to tell you if a pregnancy is healthy or if it’s a positive pregnancy.
For this study, the researchers analyzed data from 1,697 teens from the Twin States who were in grade 10, 12, or 14 in 1996-1997.
They then compared these teens to their peers in the same age group in 1997-1998.
The researchers found that those who were pregnant at age 15 or younger were about as likely to be pregnant as the teens who were not pregnant.
That means the teens whose pregnancies were positive were less likely to have a pregnancy later in life.
What can this negative pregnancy results mean for teens?
This new study found that the percentage of teens who experienced a positive result on a negative test was higher among those who had a high school diploma or less.
That’s an important finding, because it indicates that those teens who are not pregnant may have more of a negative impact on their teens.
The researchers also found that teens who had at least one positive pregnancy result were about twice as likely as teens who didn’t to have one.
“That means that teens whose positive pregnancy results are linked to other pregnancy outcomes such as preterm birth or low birth weight, and who are more likely to experience high rates of teen depression, are more at risk for pregnancy outcomes that are related to these outcomes,” Bitchof said.
Are these negative pregnancy findings a good thing?
Yes, the results are positive.
However, Bitchop and her co-authors caution that there is a caveat to the findings.
“In the absence of other studies that measure other outcomes related to pregnancy, we believe it’s important to consider the implications for other teen outcomes, such for depression,” she said.
“The findings are not a causal finding and they don’t indicate that the positive pregnancy outcomes are causal or are a risk factor for depression or other mental health outcomes.”
Does the negative findings mean that teens should avoid pregnancy tests?
No, the negative results are not the same as pregnancy.
The CDC has yet to release any new data on the negative test, but Bitcho and her team are working on developing a new test that will be more accurate and sensitive.
Do the negative tests have an impact on the teen pregnancy rate?
The researchers looked at teen pregnancy rates between 1997-1999 and 2000-2001.
The results showed that the teen birth rate decreased from a rate of 16.6 per 1,000 in 1997 to 12.7 per 1 to 1 in 2000.
But, this was not the result of a decrease in teen pregnancy.
Bitchokos research showed that teen birth rates rose from 6.9 per 1 million in 1997 and then dropped to 4.9 in 2000, which she says is consistent with the results of the CDC’s study.
Bitchop told Bleachers Beat that the negative-pregnancy-test study is still a preliminary finding.
“The data we did have shows a decline in teen birth, but the rate was very small.
It is very possible that the results we have now are due to an underlying increase in the number of births,” Bichof said in a press release.”
If we could isolate the cause of this increase in births, we could potentially do a better job at preventing pregnancy.
We think that’s a good outcome.”
Will this study change the way we think about pregnancy tests and pregnancy outcomes?
