the point of birth control is to help prevent pregnancy, yes, but I don't understand why you would need it at that age for that reason.
if your period is particularly hard to handle (if you have really bad cramps, if its a really heavy flow, if it's irregular) then birth control would probably be a good idea for you, but sexual activity at such a young age is just not safe in my opinion.
if you do insist on being sexually active so young, birth control would be a good Idea, but a condom is also necessary, to protect yourself from STDs
