This is my first time to this board. Honestly, I never thought I wouldn’t be writing for advice so soon on this subject. My daughter, who is 13 yrs old, told me two weeks ago, on the way to the orthodontist, she had sex for the first time the day before. Can you imagine driving to the orthodontist for a check with your child to find out your child is starting to have adult relations? The confusion, the numbness, the anger, I couldn't think, I couldn't breath; I really didn’t have a clue as what I should do next.
To my surprise, I was calm. I asked all the questions which I thought were imperative, I thought. The one question I asked, did you use a condom, “yes she said.” Did it break, “No!” Two weeks later her cycle haven’t come yet. . I took her, as soon as she told me, to the pediatrician who informed us; it was too early to take a pregnancy test. He referred us to a Gynecologist, which we are still waiting to see. Today, I had to purchase a pregnancy test for my 13 yr old daughter. For those of you whom believe you can watch every move they make, you can��t.
My daughter and I, talk all the time. She is fully aware of the challenges that are faced. I’m a single mother, who went back to college to complete my education, so that we can have some what of an advantage in life. It’s not second hand knowledge, she living the struggle. I’ve worked 2 jobs, attended college full time. I’ve paid plenty to give my daughter what is needed to succeed. Now there is a big chance she is pregnant. What can i pay or who i can ask to make this go away. I can't believe she would do this foolish thing, without thinking it through. Right now, I have no clue as to what’s our next step.
I don’t have a question, I just needed a place to go and release my thoughts.
