Overall, 12% reported experiencing reproductive coercion within the past three months, and 17% reported physical or sexual abuse.  “Abuse among all types of romantic relationships is common,” said Amber Hill, lead author of the study and a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Pennsylvania.  “Reproductive coercion, another form of relationship abuse, involves a range of behaviors that include pressuring a partner to become pregnant when they don’t want to be, destroying birth control or preventing the use of birth control, and removing condoms during sex (to get her pregnant),” Hill said by email. “Reproductive coercion impacts teens as well as adults and leads to poor health outcomes, such as unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.” Click here to view original web page at www.reuters.com
