My 12 y/o daughter lives with her father and she and I have a very close relationship and have discussed sex multiple times. She has now had her period for the last 2 years and I was wondering when a good time would be to start her on birth control? Outside of calling her Dr. I know her father's first daughter had a child very young and is doing very well for herself but I DO NOT want to find my daughter in the same boat. The boy my daughter sees in school as her boyfriend is sexually active. However, my ex husband and myself do not allow them to spend time alone anywhere else. I was just wondering when the appropriate time is for a PAP smear and birth control as I cannot remember when I went through all of this. My mom never taught me any of this so I was on my own. I still managed to graduate high school and get married before having my two children. I just can't seem to remember that far back! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
