Would you give your teen birth control if they asked???

  • Absolutely. It doesn't mean that she is having sex or is even going to. But at least she will be prepared if she does. It's better than a teenage pregnancy.

  • If they ask for it, yes. I may not be happy with the choice they made, but I'd be happier that they're willing to take care of themselves.

  • i think you should! my mom wouldnt let met be on birth control for some reason. i got pregnant at 18 when the condom broke and we had no back up birth control. birth control doesnt necessarily promote sex it just protects you.

  • Yes. I would. Better than being ignorant and not protecting themselves.

  • If they ask for it, yes. Absolutely. But I am 100% AGAINST giving a child birth control if they do not want it.

  • i have also seen people who do force it because they say they don't want to a grandparent.

  • If my daughter asks me to help her get birth control, absolutely. Or if either of them is too embarrassed to purchase condoms or something, sure. I'd rather they be able to come to me about it than sneak around being unsafe.

  • i wanted to just b/c i heard it regulated and helped with cramps and my mother flat out refused to help. So a friend took me. i hated the the fact that i had to sneak around her back but it ultimitely helped. so i would do the same with my daughters

  • Yes, I would. without hesitation or second thought. I would have a conversation with her about birth control and how it does not protect against STIs but Yes. My mother did not give me the option, she put me on birth control at 15, I might not agree with how she went about doing it. But I am certainly glad she did, my life could have been/would have been so much different if I would've gotten pregnant by the loser I thought I "loved" at 16.
