I started taking about sex when dd first asked where babies come from (around 3) and the conversation will be on going. I'm open with her in just about every aspect. I have little fear she'll end up a teen mom.

The most important thing to know that it is not "the sex talk", but a series of discussion or comments every single time it comes up.  It will not come up only once, trust me on this.  It starts with good touch bad touch when they're little, and graduates to learning about how sex works when they're preteens.  An open door is the way to go about it.  Don't bring it up until they're in their teens and it is already way too late.

The consequences to NOT being open about birth control are too big, imo.... std's, pregnancy, death. I'd rather open the door to protected sex than have an uninformed teen.

This exactly. I have a 16 yr old daughter. She just recently started the pill due to severe menstrual cycles. I've talked to her (and my son) openly about sex (and everything else) for as long as I can remember. I'm not all that worried about her becoming a teen mom because that's not where her focus is.

Knowledge is power. The more a teen knows the better decisions they can make. The talk should start early really but more as an on going thing adding more info as the hold grows. My son is four and we have a book called its not the stork. It's all geared for his age group but it help me answer his questions. We will give him more infor as he gets older

Absolutely. The earlier the better. Just remember to make it an on going conversation...don't just talk about it once.
