Me adn my fiance are both virgins. There is no doubt about it. We were highschool sweethearts, first relationship, first kiss. We don't want to have kids for atleast 5 years. I want to be ready when we start our sexual realtionship with each other. Neither of us have any STDs or have come in any sexual contacts with anyone. If I take the pill regularly do we still need to use condoms?

When STIs are not an issue (most accurately determined by testing), then condoms only need to be used if someone wants to use them.

No one method of birth control, including the pill, is 100% effective, so some people, for instance, combined the pill with condoms for greater protection. But if you are going to use the pill, and are comfortable with the 99.7% perfect use/92% typical use effectiveness by itself, then the pill alone is certainly a choice you can make.
