Your Daughter probably knows more about sex then your realise..Ask her what she knows about sex first. Then fill her in about what she does not know.Birth control is a tricky thing. I say put her on birthcontrol when she starts going boy crazy.Or aroung 15,16 yo..Do not wait tell she says she want to have sex..It is to late then. Cause she probably is already having sex.

Please tell me you didn't wait until 12 and now you want to jump ahead to Birth Control? Make sure that she knows that if she has sex and doesn't get pregnant (assuming no BC) that it is an indication that she has fertility problems. Teens seem to think the brain is involved with conception. Stress that pregnancy is the normal result if nothing is done to stop it and that what she would consider getting lucky would be a sign of a problem. It really whips their heads around!

Even if you have a good relationship with your daughter....this can be a tough topic. I would make sure you set aside time to do so (where neither of you or rushed). Maybe go to lunch/dinner just mom and daughter. After inquiring (and listening) to her about her life, school, friends, casually bring up the topic. Tell her you know this may be uncomfortable to talk about, but you feel it is time since she is now getting older. There are some EXCELLENT books to help you with this topic which could help you and/or be a reference to her for all the questions she probably WONT ask you.
