In brief: Maybe
Whether or not your doctor will want to prescribe birth control pills for you depends on the cause of your primary amenorrhea.
You should see a doctor to determine whether you are not having periods because of hormones, anatomy, or another cause. This will guide treatment of your amenorrhea and help determine your best contraceptive options.
