Background and significance: Young people and women are at increasing risks of becoming HIV/AIDS infected. Having multiple sexual partners has been identified as one of major risky sexual behaviors which contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS. Bandura's Social Cognitive Theory proposed that people with higher self-efficacy are less likely to engage in risky sexual behavior. Problem Behavior Theory has indicated that substance use, risky sexual behavior and depressive disorders may co-occur. Information on how these factors influence having multiple sexual partners among female adolescents is limited. Lack of this understanding limits nurses' ability to provide effective programs for reducing adolescents' risky sexual behaviors. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the predictive capability of substance use, self-efficacy and depression on having multiple sexual partners among female Taiwanese adolescents. Method: Ninety female sexually experienced Taiwanese high school students who were 16-18 years-old participated in this cross-sectional designed study. Participants were asked to complete several reliable and valid questionnaires. Results: Forty percents of the female adolescents had multiple sexual partners. Females who had multiple sexual partners reported a significantly younger age at initial sexual experience than those who had less sexual partners. Logistic Regression analysis indicated that these female students who were older (p<.05), had substance use history (p<.01), and depressed were at higher risk of having multiple sexual partners. Higher self-efficacy was related to less likelihood of having multiple sexual partners. Overall, these factors were with 71.3% predictive capability to correctly predict having multiple sexual partners or not among these female Taiwanese students. Conclusion: The information provided in this study could be utilized by nurses to identify the high risk female adolescents who may be at higher risks of engaging in risky sexual behavior and being HIV/AIDS infected.
