A survey conducted on more than 2,000 university and vocational college students has found that as many as 59 percent of university students have had sexual intercourse, with 34 percent having their first sexual experience at university and 17 percent during high school, while 8 percent of male respondents revealed they had their first sexual experience in elementary school.

According to Chan Te-fu, director of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, young children are poorly informed about contraception or the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STD), and risk unwanted pregnancies or STD infection.

Chan said that young mothers who become pregnant before the age of 16 are twice at risk as women in their 20s of complications such as pre-eclampsia or eclampsia during the pregnancy, or of premature birth or an unhealthy child.
