GONZALEZ A, Electra; MOLINA G, Temístocles  e  SAN MARTIN V, Jimena. Comportamientos sexuales y características personales según orientación sexual en adolescentes chilenos. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2016, vol.81, n.3, pp.202-210. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262016000300006.

Background: Adolescents and young lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) present additional challenges in their development compared to their heterosexual peers which exposes them to high levels of stress and distress that can lead to sexual risk behaviors. Aim: To analyze the sexual behavior, personal characteristics and sexual orientation in adolescents that attended in a center of sexual and reproductive health. Methods: Analytical cross-sectional study conducted in an adolescent population. Data were collected in 2000-2012. Multiple logistic regression was used to quantify comparisons of sexual behaviors and personal variables between LGB and heterosexual adolescents. Results: In total, 5,143 adolescents (median age 16 years, 91.5% women and 97.5% students) were studied, 127 were LGB teenagers. LGB adolescents reported risk having more sexual partners and sexual debut earlier than their heterosexual peers. This risk increased by catholic teenagers. Using contraception methods showed no risk in catholic teenagers but adolescents as-signed to another religion or no religion which was a risk factor. Conclusions: The results of this study show that the LGB and heterosexual adolescents are not identical in terms of sexual risk. LGB engages in riskier sexual behaviors than heterosexual counterparts. Healthcare providers and the education sector need to be sensitive to these differences and their implications for health and counseling of adolescents.
