There are many benefits to hormonal birth control. It can:
-regulate, lighten, and shorten your period
-clear skin
-reduce cramps and other symptoms associated with menstruation
-reduce your risk of cervical cancer
-it is the best/only treatment for PCOS, endometriosis, and a few other nasty reproductive illnesses
Aside from which, it protects you from pregnancy -even if you're not sexually active, there's always a chance you will decide to have sex spur-of-the-moment (and it can take up to 3 months for hormonal birth control to become fully effective), not to mention the horrible but undeniable fact that there is always a risk of rape -and no matter what conservative weirdos like to say, people can and do become pregnant from rape.

Most people who are not sexually active do not start using any kind of birth control, as they are not at risk of pregnancy. There is no need.

I take it you are referring to hormonal birth control such a the contraceptive pill? Some girls go on the pill to control their periods, if they have particularly heavy bleeds or bad cramps etc. But if you are not having any problems like this then I would not recommend going on the pill unless you are sexually active, because it messes with your natural hormones. Also, it's a big hassle!

It can help regulate menstrual cycles, as well as help ease PMS symptoms. It also can take up to three months for it take it's full effect, so they make take it to prepare for a time where they plan to be sexually active.

A lot of girls I know started doing it because it helped to curb appetite, lose weight, and clear up acne.
