We are exclusive. She has been on the pill for months. We have both been tested for STDs. Is condom use needed?
We are both really OCD about pregnancy and STDs, that's why despite the fact that she is on the pill and has a cellphone alarm to ensure she takes it at the same time everyday and we've both been STD tested, we still have just used condoms.
What is the risk of pregnancy if we didn't use condoms? Is this reasonable to do? Should I still try to pull-out?
The birth control pill is highly effective in preventing pregnancy, so as long as you BOTH do not ever (now or in the future) violate your monogamous agreement, you can decide to give up condoms and withdrawal. If you both have had prior sexual partners and not had a prior STD, and are now testing negative, you are probably good to go.
Remember that no birth control is 100% (unless it is abstinence and sterilization). The 98% or so effectiveness from birth control pills can be improved a bit by using condoms as well, but that will be your mutual choice.
When both persons' accepted the risk. IF educated already on safe sex. It is a decision of the two to be one team & one family. As a like the three branches of government. That is an both consider path of the two co-founders of the relationship. Since this is now equal society. Maybe we can create a birth control pill for the male. The female has been elitely taken more risk. In the past, present & futures. As friends & family. Our health is an on going issue to happiness. Subdue various cases of changes. In ones lives that effects another. It is the key to being one's self & growth through out life. Non educated or being careless are the more targeted factors of the spread all that comes with territory of having sex. Parenting & mentors that are response to lead are just by the handful. Who can reach the understandings of this base. Sensitive subject among all life itself.
