“…While acknowledging the lack of standardization of definitions on early sexual initiation and the fact that they depend on the sociocultural context, various authors state that the younger the age at sexual initiation, the higher the probability of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV/ AIDS 12,13,14 , unplanned adolescent pregnancy 15,16 , maternal mortality 17,18 , and cervical cancer 19 . Other consequences are psychosocial, such as alcohol and drug abuse and school delay and dropout, among others 17,20,21 .…”
