According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) most sexually active teens are using contraception.

In fact, data collected from over 4,000 teens between 2011 and 2015 shows that 90% of females and 95% of males now say they use some sort of contraception.

The report also says that teens are waiting longer to have sex.
