I been with my partner for more than two years. How long should we wait to have sex with out a condom?. (. I know that we should still use one, but to be honest I don't quite like them and it also feels better with out one.)
Are you asking about this from the perspective of knowing when your STI risks will be reduced?

Oh I just realize that I didn't mention that I just got on the pill so the question is how long should we wait to have sex with out a condom even though I just started on the pill. Sorry about the first post:(

We recommend using a second method of birth control throughout the entire first cycle of pills--that is, the entire time of taking the first pack. After that the pill, provided you take it correctly, will be up to its full effectiveness. Remember that using the pill doesn't eliminate pregnancy risks completely, but if you're comfortable with the effectiveness of the pill, after one cycle you can stop using a second birth control method.
