WOW! i had my daughter at 19- she started her period at 11 & i can honestly say i didn't think about BC then- i was Sad that she would have to start so early dealing with all the Girlie Issues- i was always very open with her about sex & everything that went along with it- i told her she could come to me about anything- She Did- at 16! so, i made a appt. & she got on BC- My daughter is now 24, graduated with her Bachelors Degree & is now a Fashion Designer in Fort Lauderdale, FL. & My Very Best Friend:) Just keep those communication lines open with your daughter & make sure she really knows she can always come to you no matter what- Try not to worry so much; she will be fine:)
