Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Daughter's choice: There is a point in every parents' relationship with a child in which they cross the ADULT line of demarcation. At that point, as parents, we offer advice only when asked by the newly minted "adult child" Your 22 yr old daughter needs to make an appointment with a GYN MD and ask about her contraceptive needs after a detailed explanation. "You can lead a horse to water but can't make them drink."
