If she was pregnant at 15 and went here for support- she would commit suicide because of these bitches.

Well she does now know where babies come from and pretty sure there is enough positive groups to counter act the negative groups. I would be open to her asking me questions in regards to issues she may not understand. Confessions is not the only group on here.

Ummm yeah. If my 15 year old is pregnant, shes obviously seen and done things that most 15 year olds havent. Im pretty sure there is a teen pregnancy group that any teenager that is pregnant could benefit from.

So a big yes from me.

Quoting Anonymous:


Teens advised to consider benefits of IUD use for birth control


Only a tiny percentage of teenage girls in the United States use intrauterine devices for birth control, even though studies show they are safe, effective and very low-maintenance, according to researchers at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and the School of Medicine.

In a paper published this month in the Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, lead author Sophia Yen, MD, MPH, a board-certified specialist in adolescent medicine at Packard Children’s, and her co-authors report that more than a dozen studies have shown that teenagers with IUDs were as likely or more likely to continue using them compared with teens using birth-control pills. Furthermore, IUDs can work for as long as five or 10 years, depending on the type; are cost-effective; and are more than 99-percent effective at preventing pregnancy, the authors note.

“IUDs are a good contraceptive option for teens,” said the paper’s senior author, Paula Hillard, MD, a pediatric gynecologist at Packard Children’s and a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the medical school.

Still, only a very small number of adolescents choose this contraceptive option. From 2006 to 2008, 1 percent of U.S. girls ages 15-19 used IUDs for birth control, while 15.2 percent used birth-control pills, according to the National Survey of Family Growth. (Among U.S. women ages 15-44, 3.4 percent used IUDs and 17.3 percent used the pill from 2006 to 2008.)

“The IUD has an undeserved bad reputation both in the public and among physicians,” said Yen, who is also a clinical instructor in pediatrics. “There’s the myth that they’re not appropriate for women who haven’t yet given birth, and the myth that they increase the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease.”

The first myth, she said, is likely a vestige of early liability fears: Doctors wanted to make sure a woman had already had a baby to avoid possible lawsuits alleging that an IUD had rendered her infertile.

Countering this myth, the authors highlight the 2006 British adaptation of the World Health Organization Medical Eligibility Criteria for contraception, which states that previous IUD use is not associated with reduced fertility.

The second myth likely stems from the notoriety of a popular IUD brand marketed in the 1970s. “Some mothers of today’s teenagers remember the Dalkon Shield, which was associated with a significant risk of infection and basically gave IUDs a bad name,” said Hillard. “So there is some of that lingering concern.”

Studies show a slightly increased risk of pelvic inflammatory disease during the first month after IUD insertion. This risk is likely due to bacteria — either those normally living in the vagina or those from a sexually transmitted disease — that can be carried into the uterus when the IUD is inserted. But beyond that initial interval, women who have IUDs are at no greater risk for PID than women who don’t have them.

For some young women, the insertion can cause moderate discomfort and, in some cases, severe pain, the researchers say. Physicians can administer a painkiller or local anesthetic to make the process more tolerable. For a couple of months after insertion, some women may feel uterine tenderness akin to menstrual cramps.

According to the paper, however, many adolescents either don’t know about IUDs or else have serious reservations about them. “In one survey, 60 percent of adolescents were unaware of IUDs as a contraceptive option,” the authors write. “Anecdotally, size is one of the most frequent questions asked at the first IUD evaluation visit.”

IUDs are slender T-shaped objects — about half the length of your index finger. The placement of the device is probably one source of trepidation for adolescents.

“It’s just the fear of having something in your uterus,” Yen said.

Hillard noted that IUDs are as effective as sterilization but are entirely reversible. Both she and Yen emphasized that IUDs should be used with condoms to prevent the acquisition and spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

On the whole, the authors assert that IUDs are especially well-suited for teenagers. “Adolescents may have difficulty with consistent oral contraceptive use, and are at a particularly high risk for unintended pregnancy with resultant negative consequences to their lives,” they conclude. “Thus, IUDs are appropriate for adolescents, as many would like to avoid pregnancy for five or more years to allow completion of educational or career goals.”
