OK I am a nurse in LTC. I had my first child when I was 14 years old. (Even with parents in the same house) First child was a boy and almost 17 years old and no grandbaby.( THANK YOU JESUS) So now my daughter (Second Child) is 13 years old and I am just wanting everyone's opinion on when it is appropriate to start birth control for females. Don't get me wrong I am almost sure I have made my mind up about this but would love to hear everyone's pros vs cons about starting a 13 year old on birth control. here is a list of my own:
Hopefully preventing teenage pregnancy
The education that comes along with the process (She will probably listen to someone else more than me, being her parent)
Is she going to see it as I am giving her the O.K. to have sex if I do put her on Birth control????
SN: Now let's get backgroung information on my daughter. She is a good child straight A student, Doesn't get to go to others house for sleepovers very often and is very well supervised by myself and her stepdad and grandpaw.
