The proposed project follows the previous research project Fertility behaviour of Slovenians II. In present research we intend to investigate the reproductive behaviour of adolescents in Slovenia due of the fact that adolescent childbearing is important risk factor for repreductive health of our women and their families. The goal of the project is to identify the most important risk factors for teenage pregnncies in Slovenia. We are especially interested about how initial sexual and contraceptive behaviour including age at first intercourse, timing of first contraception and effectiveness of the method chosen affect the risk of teenage pregnancies and their outcomes (births, abortions). We intend to investigate the impact of social and family environment and of personal factors on the risky initial sexual and contaceptive behaviour. Apart from these we will determine how adolescent childbearing per se and its outcome influence future child spacing, final number of children and contraceptive behaviour. These results will be compared to the data from first Fertility Survey in Slovenia in 1989. We will also compare the trends in reproductive behaviour of our adolescents with the trends in European countries that were part of Fertility and Family Surveys. History event analysis will be used to determine the hazard of getting pregnant in certain time period from the sexual debut on. Time varying factors that the most affect the timing of pregnancy will be evaluated. The use of the above methods will allow us to evaluate time dipendent variables which is a significant improvement compared to available research in Slovenia. In this way we will be able to obtain valuable information on reproductive behaviour of Slovenian adolescents. On the bases of the obtained results a model for effective prevention of teenage pregnancies will be constructed.
