Age starting the pill???

Just want to know from what age can a girl start using the pill??? In these days one tries to do everything possible for the impossible. Is it healthy if a girl start using the pill from age 13? My husband' s cousin started her periods this year and is very mature for her age, but we are considering putting her on the pill. She goes and visit her dad every second weekend or so, but we never know what' s going on there as he is very unstable in his life. And with crime in these days and life and hopefully nothing will happen to her. Please advise....

There is no lower age limit for starting the Pill. She can start at 13 years. owever, if there is a serious concern about sexual abuse, this should be looked into.
