Should I give birth control to my 12yrold to regulate her mood swings?

Birth control can help regulate periods but doesn't help with mood swings at all. Like Jodi said, it can increase the mood swings.

Um, no? Drug your child for a perfectly normal hormonal reaction?

Besides, mood swings can be a side effect of birth control, not to mention potential mental health problems, so why would you do it to CONTROL mood swings. All you are doing is introducing more hormones into her body and possibly creating an imbalance.

What sort of mother asks this kind of questions?
