Teen DD on birth control

I just found out my teenager daughter is on birth control. She's 17 and has been dating her boyfriend for 1.5 years.

I'm upset that she was allowed to get this without my permission or notification! Is that legal??

WWYD? Part of my wants to tell her she needs to go off it, dump the boyfriend and stay grounded until college.

I would leave it be. I would talk to her and make sure that she knows BC isnt 100 percent. At least she's trying to use protection.

You can tell her to ditch the pill, ditch the boyfriend and she will leave and there's not a damn thing you can do because she's 17.
Personally I'd rather have a teen on BC than a pregnant teen!

Not good that she didn't tell you, but would you rather she was with her boyfriend unprotected or taking precaution to prevent a pregnancy?

Gee....I can't imagine why she didn't tell you.......

How about asking yourself what is wrong with you as a mother that your dd would rather go to the gyno ALONE than with you. I mean that place is scary when your young!!

If she got it by herself then she is probably having sex. At least she is smart and got it in the first place. I wouldn't force her off of it, just talk to her. Good luck mama!

if you make her go off the birth control she still going to have sex and possibly get pregnant. At least she was trying to be responsible.

I don't understand why young people have sex... it's really not even that great as a teen.

Yes its very legal. Where I live..once you're 12 you can walk into the health department and ask for condoms and birth control and they legally cant tell your parents.
