Abstract:
Ethnographic interviews with pregnant Mexican-American and Native-American adolescents and young adults from low-income households explored their knowledge about conception and contraception as well as their contraceptive and sexual behavior. The findings suggest that their unwanted pregnancies are not due to a lack of knowledge but rather are due to their heteronomous sexual behavior which results in infrequent contraceptive usage and thereby a risk of unwanted pregnancy.
