Mkay.... My mom always said that when I'm ready to have sex, to tell her and she can put me on birth control... Well, me and my bf are ready but I don't know how to tell my parents... I just think it will be really awkward.... Please help me!!!
How about sitting down with your mom when she has some time (you can tell her you'd like to discuss something with her and to tell you when she'll have some time to do so) and then simply being honest with her and saying something like : ''Mom, we've talked about that before and you've told me to tell you before I start being sexually active and I think that I might be ready now for that and I just thought about telling you.'', something along that line.
I'm sure, whichever way you tell her, that she'll appreciate your honesty. I'm glad that you're thinking about being honest with your mom and that you and your mom get to talk about sex and that kind of stuff because unfortunatly not every mother does so.
I recently had this conversation with my mother, actually.
When it came time for me to do it, I approached it from the BC angle, saying that I was planning on taking a trip over to campus health and did our insurance cover BCPs and where was the insurance card? The fact that I was taking that step pretty much implied that I was getting ready to have sex without me having to come out and state it. Once we'd relayed that information, it was much easier to come back to the topic in later conversations like it was old hat and something comfortable to discuess.
