Is it bad to go en pointe if not had much ballet training?

I started ballet classes a few years ago, then quit for a year or so and started again recently. I got ahead of my self and bought a pair of pointe shoes off eBay and I have been using them just at home for the last 2 weeks. Of course when I first used them it was painful but with some practice it is not bad at all... show more I started ballet classes a few years ago, then quit for a year or so and started again recently. I got ahead of my self and bought a pair of pointe shoes off eBay and I have been using them just at home for the last 2 weeks. Of course when I first used them it was painful but with some practice it is not bad at all now and I’m more comfortable dancing in them (I do about 10 mins a day so not much) I am 13 years old which I’ve heard is old enough to go en pointe but I’m worried with my lack of experience I may damage my feet. Should I stop before it creates any damage or will I be okay? I’m doing grade 4 classes and my teacher doesn’t know I’m en pointe at home.
