More teens using best contraception

WACO -- A new survey reveals more teen girls are using the best birth control methods.

The survey released by the Centers for Disease Control found that  60 percent of teen girls who have sex use the most effective kinds of contraception, including the patch and the pill.

That number is up from the mid-1990's when less than half were using the most effective methods.

Officials said the trend may help explain a large decline in the nation's teen birth rate since 1990.
