Abstract: Purpose: Adolescent women’s sexual behaviors are complex with varying motivations that include specific partners, sexual pleasure and satisfaction, and the fertility desires. These factors may affect protective behaviors (e.g., condom use) thus affecting the potential negative outcomes of unintended pregnancy and STIs. Accordingly, this study prospectively examined how specific partners, sexual satisfaction, and pregnancy intentions affected sexual behaviors and condom use immediately and over time.
