Adolescent childbirth, miscarriage, and abortion: associations with changes in alcohol, marijuana, and cigarette use
Adolescent girls who become pregnant demonstrate greater risk for substance use than same‐aged peers. However, it remains unclear how risk relates to normative changes in adolescence. Few studies have examined adolescent substance use changes before, during, and after pregnancy and considered how pregnancy outcomes (childbirth, miscarriage, abortion) differentially influence substance use changes. The present study examined associations between different adolescent pregnancy outcomes and within‐person changes in substance use from prepregnancy to postpregnancy.
