In brief: Yes if needed
There are young girls who benefit from birth control pills.
This may be for bleeding abnormalities, painful cycles (endometriosis), or both. If taken properly, it should not be a problem & i prefer this to injectable progestins (dmpa, depo-provera) in young girls since they benefit from the estrogen.
