WELLL, my 15yo (16 on Thanksgiving this year) has been on birth control for about a year now and we've discussed "possibilities" MANY times. She's about due for her 1 year girly checkup to go another year- however yesterday we had a conversation about how her period is 3 days late and she's on the non-hormone week. I asked if she thought she could possibly be pregnant and she says she dosen't know how with the pill and condoms. She had missed one pill on the pack BEFORE the one she just finished (she told me that at the time), and assures me that even though they've only been with each other they absolutely use condoms EVERY time. I know I've hounded BOTH of them about the necessity of TWO methods because stuff happens and only the condom can reduce the threat of STD'd -make them a habit even if you're only with each other until after you're married and want kids. IF she's being totally truthful, I don't think she's pregnant but boy is she getting herself worked up over it! GOOD!! I know I'm hoping the worry isn't worth the sex and they'll decide maybe it's time to stop for awhile...yeah, right.
BUT, I also asked her if she would consider abortion as an option for herself- she said no way, she'd give it to her oldest sister, and I honestly believe she would. I told her if that's the case there's no need to waste money on a test because our Doc will be able to tell by her cervix when she goes for her checkup and by that time we'd know anyway.
This is her first "scare" and HOOBOY! I sure hope thats all it is!
