My niece just told her mom(my sis n law) that she is pregnant last week. They took her to the dr. today and she is already 3 months along. She is only 11 years old!!!!!! Yes, i said 11!!!
I just dont understand how something like this happens. she said she has been having sex with her boyfriend who is 14!!!!
At what age do/will you have the sex talk? What would you do if this was your DD??

WOW!!!! I don't even think I'd started my period at 11. I'm so sorry for her parents. This has to be heartbreaking. Did they even know she had a boyfriend? If they did, then they should have been talking with her about safe sex. I would even take it one step further and take her to an OBGYN and get her on birth control. I know it seems extreme at 11, but kids are having sex at such a young age now, I'd rather be safe than sorry. It's clear that at 11, she cannot parent a child, nor do I think she is capable of making such a difficult decision about whether to place it up for adoption or not. IMHO, abortion is not an option, but that's just me. If it were my child, I would probably keep the child and raise it as my own. If that was not a viable option, we would place the child up for adoption. I'm a HUGE advocate for adoption. Best of luck to your family.

Next question overall
(Trying to Conceive)
When can I start testing, do you think I'm about to start or I'm pregnant?
