If the 11-13 year old is having sex, then yes. Regardless of whether she has started her period. Not having started menstral cycles DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANT GET PREGNANT. When you get your period, it means you ovulated about a fourtnight ago, so a fourtnight ago you were fertile and you didnt realise it, and therefore were capable of getting pregnany, even though you hadnt actually started your period.
She could be taking it because she has too much testosterone. Like Ty said, birth control is used for other things besides preventing pregnancy, Also, are you even sure she has been taking birth control since 5th grade? Some kids lie to be cool.
Why in the world are kids having sex at such a young age these days? The one guy on this site said a 9 year old had a child, 5 years old WTF, aren't girls still thinking boys are gross at that age, and boys think pulling their hair is flirting?
yes, in the childbearing years they are very likely to grow overian cysts and their periods can affect the way they live. it helps it really does but make sure they know that its only for one use not sex
Sex lead to mistakes, mistakes lead to babies, the you have a child the rest of your life that depends on you the reset of your life. Children are very expensive, but we love them all the same.
It is possible she's taking them for another reason. Birth control is not just taken for birth control. It is taken for other reasons such as hormonal imbalances and what not...
The five year old was rap.ed. She had precocious puberty, which enabled her to get pregnant, and made her a target to paedophiles in the first place
I'll go with Patricia C. it shouldn't be necessary at that age,it's way too guy to start having sex and thinking about birth control.
I hope not. I have heard of girls getting pregnant that young, but it seems way way too young to me to be having sex.
Well there is this girl, who has had birth control since 5th grade. i just kinda want to know, if it is necessary
yes u r right ma'm bt youngest mom in d world is 9 year old.. so it may be exceptional case sometimes..
yes, if u have started ur periods and condom gives protection from infection..
Well a 13 year old does not need to have sex, a 9 year old, hell no.
That's so sad. At 5, there is no way she could handle pregnancy. :(
actually the youngest mother was 5 if you're interested!
yes i m agree with u bt it happens in d world..
