The city has launched a phone application for sexually active teenagers.

"Teens in NYC Protection Plus" was released by the New York City Department of Health in an effort to continue to reduce teen pregnancy and help those who are already expecting.

The app provides information on receiving condoms and emergency contraception, as well as finding free clinics for HIV and STD testing.

It's the third teen-oriented phone app released by the department.

The city says teen pregnancy declined significantly over the past decade, but there are still more than 19,000 teen pregnancies per year.
