UNITED STATES (www.incnow.tv) -- New statistics from the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention show that one in five teen births is a second pregnancy for the young mother.
Of the 365,000 teen births that took place in 2010, 18% were repeat pregnancies. Multiple teen pregnancies were most common among American Indians, followed by Hispanics and African Americans.
Over 90% of the teens said they used some form of contraception after their first pregnancy, but a majority did not use the most effective types of protection.
