I've been on the Pill for over 2 years now, and sexually active for nearly a year. My boyfriend and I have always used condoms as well as the pill, but we are thinking of (now and then) not using a condom. I always take my pills around the hour of 6pm...is this adequate protection?

Thanks very much for any feedback!

Have both you and your boyfriend had TWO full STUI screenings, 6 months apart?

If so, yes, you can have sex without a condom and use just the pill for protection. When taken properly, the pill is about 99% effective against pregnancy.

From what you're describing it sounds like you're taking the pill correctly.

Yep, we are fully tested and cleared, twice just like you said!

Thanks for the input :-)
