|good for your mom then but i would to me that is sending out a subliminal message and personally there is no way in hell id put my daughter on birth control just in case something happened. if we discussed it and she was thinking about having sex and was making a responsible well thought out decision about it then yes, i would take her to get birth control.
and in california you will have a very hard time finding a responsible doctor who will put in a iud unless you have had children and or do not plan on ever having children due to the fact that in can affect your fertility if infection occurs.
|I think that you should just approach your teenager and tell them that its ok to experience but then need to be safe... encourage them to use condoms to protect against STDs and if it is a female tell them that you would prefer them to go on birth control so they don't have to worry about taking care of a child at a young age.. then call to make an appointment for her to get the birth control.|
Kristy heard birthcontroll will make it harder to have a baby when u get off of it .. is that truee?
( ohh yaa beach on tuesday its going to be nicee but you gotta wakee earrlyyy so hit the sheets early lady !! lol )
My mom did it more in case I was raped, and personally, having to get an abortion or going through a pregnancy and adoption or keeping the child of a rape is a heck of a lot worse in every way possible, than putting your daughter on a pill.
It wasn't a "subliminal" message, because I was raised that sex was for marriage or love, and something done only if you're sure you're in love. It was a message of "I trust you and I know you don't want to have sex, but in case something happens, now you're safe. I love you enough to protect you."
Not putting a girl on birth control because you think it's a subliminal message is pretty irresponsible in my eyes. Prevention before abortion I always say.
I'm not saying it's easy to get an iud. I said "you have to know where to go and who to talk to."
Just about everything can affect your fertility, but an iud is pretty low on that list. I think you're more likely to contract an std that affects your infertility, than you are likely to have your fertility affected by an iud. The fears about iuds are totally blown out of proportion.
eiri iud's are not recommendable for women who have never had children. First because the uterus is very small and can barely fit one. And second because the body is most likely to reject it. A uterus who never had a child don't like anything strange in it. I personally now particulary since i will be having children in my mid 30's want my uterus in it's top shape, i aint not risking any trouble with it until i birth at least 2 children

I will talk to them, but I'm hoping that sex-ed in high school will fill in the gaps that I can't cover (becuase of lack of knowlege or something). I like the idea of having condoms given out, but it should be done in a discrete way of course. Also the health teachers and nurses should post phone numbers & address for Planned Parent Hood.
My parents never gave me the sex talk, not entirely sure why. But I turned out ok, I didn't loose my virginity until I was 20.
