To her 18 year old bf (they both live with me).

She wanted the implant removed (said was because she was gaining weight) and was going to use condoms hmm

She doesn't know she wants to do... I'm just so sad for her future sad

Anyone else give me advice who been in this situation?

Don't be sad her future will be different - she has plenty of options, talk things through - my daughter didn't go ahead and had never had regrets - my son has 2 13 months apart and and has no regrets but did think about not going ahead - be strong

My son had his daughter when he was only 16 and his girlfriend was 15. They were both in school at the time and her mum thought her life was over and kicked her out. They both lived with me until their daughter was 6.

Having a kid so young motivated them both to do well at school and college so they could give the best to their daughter. They left college both with fantastic jobs and now they have been married for 8 years, are in their early 30s, their daughter is almost 18 and they have 2 more beautiful children who are 6 and 3.

My son now earns more money on his own than both me and my partner together, his wife doesn't have to work and they would still be able to provide everything they need plus more. But she does work, she owns her own company!

Having a baby young doesn't necessarily mean they're future is no longer bright and fantastic, it just means things will be a little different.

Good luck to your daughter, I hope you support and help her to make the best decision for herself. flowers
