Better to talk to her about sex openly and honestly. Even on the pill she could get pregnant and the pill doesn't protect against STDs. She needs to be full aware that having sex while she is still in school is NOT a good idea on any level whatsoever, but if she DOES make that choice... she needs to be 100% sure to use a condom each and every time... no exceptions.... and always reassure her that she can talk to you about anything at any time.

Now... I know a determined teenager is going to do what they are going to do, but I, personally, would never start a child on hormonal birth control 'just in case' they have sex... because while a lot of teenagers DO have sex... not all of them do.
