Masters Thesis

The relationship between self-concept and the use of contraception in unmarried adolescent females.

is obvious from the large number of illigitimate births, legally and illegally induced abortions, and legitimate but undesired pregnancies in the United States that contra- ceptive measures are commonly ignored or actively rejected by a substantial proportion of coitally active human beings who consciously deny procreative intent. While many of the reasons for misuse or rejection of contraception are included within the commonly discussed areas of contraceptive knowledgeability, acceptability, availability, cost, religious professions, etc., innumerable other reasons, principally in the psychological and interpersonal relationship realms, are also operative consciously and unconsciously in both partners.
