Kendall Jenner on birth control at 15

Kendall Jenner is on birth control at age 15

Ed. note: When this article was first published by a writer on the site, it expressed judgment on the issue of a 15-year-old being on birth control. It has been edited to better reflect the opinion of as a whole. Despite whatever reason Kendall Jenner is on birth control, taking birth control when you are sexually active is very responsible decision. It should be also noted that many girls who take birth control do so for other reasons besides being sexually active.

E has been rolling out teaser promos for the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.  The theme is “family rules” and if what we’ve discovered from these clips are any indication we’re going to be seeing a lot more of the younger Ks, Kylie and Kendall.  In the clip, we’re shown daddy Bruce as he discovers that the 15-year-old is on the pill.

In an interview with E’s blog Khloe implied that young Kendall was on the pill for reasons other than birth control such as acne prevention and menstrual cramps.  She said:

“She is on birth control, but I don’t want it to be bad,” she said. “Because it’s not that reason why she’s on birth control.”

Even if Kendall is on birth control for more than cramps, this is an interesting issue. The truth of the matter is that many teens are sexually active, and it can be a very responsible decision to put your teen daughter on birth control. Realistic communication between parents and teenagers is the key to preventing teen pregnancy, STDs, and other problems that can interrupt a teen’s life.

It’s looking like Kendall is on birth control to control cramps, but even if she’s not we shouldn’t judge.
