Would you chose to block your childs' fertility until they were 18?

Let's say a medicine was invented that would safely block both male and female fertility until they were 18 without any side effects. Would you give the med to your child? How about if it was until they were 16? 21? When? Why? Why not?

Let's assume for this discussion that this drug has been proven over many generations to be absolutely safe and cause no long term infertility.

My kids would willingly scoff that shit down until they were married. Who wouldn't?

Part of me wants to say yes, but the other part says absolutely not! I'm torn, bump.

no.  absolutely not. If our child is going to make a choice to have sex, they need to know their are consequences. some great and some not so great, and to take away a possible consequence is not what I want to do for my children.

Sure why not i likely wouldn't even tell em whatnot was just say it was an allergy shot or sonething ... I'd do it yep if I didn't have to worry about unwanted pregnancies... I know a few adults it wouldn't hurt to be on those meds to haha

If it was proven to never have a side effect over many generations then I'd do it.  Hell, I'd be taking it!  

And I'd still be teaching my children about STDs and the importance of protecting yourself.

something like that wilL ALWAYS have side effect. The fact is young girls start menstrating for a reason, their body is building to prepare them to become young women and men. I wouldnt recommend it, an dno I would not do it. But if we could temporarily disable sex all together I would do it.

I would have certainly done that!   My children chose to wait until they were 30+ and settled before beginning a family, so I'm happy I didn't need it.
