In brief: See a doctor ASAP

The am college of obstetricians and gynecologists recommends a first visit with a gyno sometime around age 13-15.
Preventing pregnancy with effective birth control (pills or other methods) and lowering risk of stds by using condoms are essential. If you're the mom of a teen and know or suspect your daughter needs birth control, take her to a gyno or adolescent doctor or planned parenthood asap.
