Five specific objectives were formulated with five corresponding research questions. Three null hypothesis were formulated to be tested at .05 level of significance.A descriptive survey research design was utilized for the study. The population for this study was 10,464 students which is the total number of in-school adolescents enrolled in public secondary schools in Udenu LGA of Enugu State. The sample for the study was 432 in-school adolescents including 216 male and female students respectively, selected from 12 public secondary schools using the multistage sampling technique. The instrument for data collection was the researcher designed questionnaire called the Questionnaire on Contraceptive Use - QCU. The QCU had two sections: section A sought data on personal data of respondents while section B sought data on contraceptive use. The validity of the instrument was established by five experts in the department of the Health and Physical Education, University of Nigeria Nsukka. Internal consistency of QCU was established using the Split-Half method to yield and inter-item correlation coefficient of 0.73. Frequencies and percentages were used to answer the research questions while Chi-Square statistics were employed to test the hypothesis at .05 level of significance. The results emanating from the study revealed that the proportion of in-school adolescents that use contraceptives is 158 (38.63%) in-school adolescents. The various forms of contraceptives used by in-school adolescents included withdrawal method by 67 (42.41 %), condom 65 (41.14 %), pill 23 (14.56 %), rhythm method 2 (1.27 %) and implants 1 (0.63 %). 127 male in-school adolescents (61.06%) and 31 (15.42%) female in-school adolescents who participated in the study used contraceptives. The older in-school adolescents use contraceptives more that the younger adolescents, hence, in-school adolescents who were 17 – 19 years old, 14 – 16 years old and 10 – 13 years old had 123 (57.34%), 28 (27.15%) and 7 (7.12%) of contraceptive use respectively. The senior classes use contraceptive to a greater extent than those in the junior classes with an average of 135 (63.38%) of those in the senior classes and 23 (11.73%) of those in junior classes.
