Let's say I have sex on maybe one to three days each month, so not very often. I use a condom correctly each time, and am with the same partner each time. STD's are taken care of with the condom, main issue is pregnancy. How strongly should I be thinking about going on the pill? I really don't like to take meds unless they are really needed, and I don't know how much I like the idea of messing with my hormones. For 3 days of sex each month, do I need the pill?

EC, yes. I could get it if it was needed, but I don't wish to make it a common thing I'll use. Emergencies, thats what it's for, not for cases when we just can't find a condom. Can't find a condom, go buy one.
STI tests, no, but I've looked carefully into both of our history. He's the first person I've ever done anything with, and he has only had some relations with one other person, and he was her first. All parents check out clean as well.
