I definitely plan to teach them about their bodies around the time we talk about puberty/menstruation. I probably won't get into a lot of detail about sperm survival or the rules for avoiding/achieving pregnancy until they are older...but I think it would be helpful for them to keep a very basic chart to predict when their periods will come, since irregularity it pretty typical during the first few years of menstruation. Getting caught off guard as a teen was the worst!
