A new report on adolescent sexual activity in Minnesota found that lesbian and bisexual females were three to five times more likely to have been pregnant than straight females, and gay males and males who question their sexuality were also four... An editor for The Gospel Coalition has analyzed the report, offering answers. The study released by Teenwise Minnesota, which promotes adolescent sexual health and development, shows that of the 77,758 respondents from 9th and 11th grades, only 2. 4 percent of straight males had gotten someone pregnant, and only 1. 5... The study also said that 8. 9 percent of bisexual males had gotten someone pregnant, while 8. 2 percent of bisexual females had been pregnant. Joe Carter, an editor for The Gospel Coalition, writes that a reason could be that LGBQ teens claimed to have sex much more often than straight teens, as 50. 9 percent of lesbian females and 48. 7 percent of gay males said they had sex at least... A contributing factor to the higher pregnancy rates, Carter adds, may also be "that LGBQ have higher levels of substance abuse before having sex. "Questioning, bisexual, and gay males had the highest rates of alcohol or drug use at their last sexual encounter (36. 5 percent, 26 percent, and 29. 3 percent respectively), while straight males and females had the lowest (18. 8 and 14. 5... A recent study of New York City high school students, reported in the American Journal of Public Health in May, also found that pregnancies are more common among lesbian, gay, bisexual youths than among their heterosexual counterparts, Carter... That study found that about 13 percent of heterosexual females and about 14 percent of females who only had male sexual partners had been pregnant, compared to about 23 percent of lesbian or bisexual females and about 20 percent of girls who had... "Over the past few years evangelical churches have made great strides in learning how to minister to those with same-sex attraction," Carter goes on to say.

study published in the journal, Occupational & Environmental Medicine , found that women who worked more than 40 hours a week may experience "longer median duration of pregnancy attempt" compared to women who have lesser work hours. In addition, women who do several heavy moving or lifting of more than 25-pound loads a day may also experience delayed pregnancies. For the study, lead author and researcher Audrey Gaskins from Boston's Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and colleagues looked at more than 1,700 nurses who were trying to conceive. Based on their estimate, 16 percent of the women won't be able to conceive within 12 months and five percent of the number won't be pregnant after attempting for two years. According to Reuters , half of the participants in the study are more than 33 years and old and approximately 45 percent are overweight or obese. more than 20 percent are both former and current tobacco smokers. "Our results show that heavy work, both in terms of physical strain and long hours, appears to have a detrimental impact on female nurses' ability to get pregnant," said Gaskins in an email to Reuters. "If this effect is real, it is likely due to the fact that these women are having less frequent intercourse due to their work demands," Lynch said. A normal fertile couple will be able to conceive within six months up to two years. Other factors that contribute to delays in pregnancy may include the age, diet, and lifestyles of the couple, the regularity of intercourse, weight, and other reproductive conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease, Baby Centre explained. To improve chances of conception, the website advises couples to have intercourse every two to three days instead of every day as this may affect the quality of the sperm. This should also be in conjunction with the fertile days of the woman in her menstrual cycle. Source: www.latinoshealth.com
