The birth control pill only protects against pregnancy. It does not protect you against STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). So, unless you really, really trust the guy you…'re sleeping with...yes, you still need to use a condom. Also, the pill has been known to fail every once in awhile, so some people prefer to use both condoms and the pill just for birth control, even if they're married and only sleep with each other.
Answer . This is just a lay answer. You should always ask your Doctor. You do for the first month because that's how long it takes for the pill to become effective. You …also do if you are not in a monogamous relationship, as the birth control pill only protects against pregnancy, not STDs like herpes or HIV. . Answer . It is a very good idea to still use condoms while on birth control because nothing is 100% effective. Using the both of them together will increase your chances of preventing pregnancy. And birth control DOES NOT protect against any type of std. So for prevention and protection it is best to use a condom.. Answer . I just got the birth control shot; my doctor said it should become effective after 24 hours since i was on my period. So you dont have to use condoms but you should to prevent yourself from getting STDs/AIDs. Also, there is that 3 out of 100 that just might have that accidental pregnancy....usually those are the people that are late on getting their next shot or taking a pill.
Answer . Well birth control is not 100% gauranteed to keep you from getting pregnant, so if you want to take extra precaution I suggest using a condom. Birth control also …does not protect against STD's
Certainly ... especially if concerned about STD's. Birth control pills do no protect one iota against those. Yes and no. Birth control is an effective contraceptive, and can p…revent pregnancy. However, you can use birth control with condoms to make it next to impossible to get pregnant, provided the condom does not break. I would still recommend condoms because birth control does not protect you against STIs No a condom is not needed if you are on birth control if you are only trying to prevent pregnancy. Birth control is more 99.99% effective when taken correctly. Birth control pills need to be taken everyday at the same time to make sure that the pill is 99.99% effective.
better to use one now than wish 3 mos from now that you had
Using a condom to prevent pregnancy is not necessary because the birth control patch is 99% effective when used properly. However, the patch does not protect against sexually …transmitted infections like herpes, chlamydia, or gonorrhea. To protect yourself against these infections, wearing a condom is a good idea unless you and your partner have been tested.
Condoms provide additional protection against pregnancy and disease, even for women on birth control. Although they are not required, it's a great idea.
Birth control only protects against pregnancy. Condoms protect against sexually transmitted diseases.
YES! birth control and prednisone does not stop std's and not always pregnancy. if you are in a long term relationship and you both obviously know you have no ifections then i…t isn't uncommon to have sex without a condom. In this case still use a condom when first going onto birth control as it can mess up your monthly period and/or ovulation so a tiny slip up (if that's what you want to call it) may result in the patter of tiny feet... and you will be left saying "what happened? i was on the pill". This is also different for each individual so whereas the doctor may say it will take 2 weeks to settle when on the pill in reality it can be anything up to 6 months.
Absolutely YES! Birth control pills only protect you from getting pregnant. Condoms, while not foolproof, will protect you from STDs.
Using a condom further lowers the risk of pregnancy, and also protects against disease.
Birth control is 99.9% effective when taken properly, so you do not need a condom to protect yourself from pregnancy. However, if you are not in a monogamous relationship; mea…ning, if you have more than one intimate partner, you should use condoms to protect yourself from STI/STD's.
In Birth Control Pill
Yes, unless there is a chance that either partner has an STD/STI (sexually transmitted disease/infection) because the pill does not protect against those
In Birth Control
BCP do not protect against STI's or HIV. If you and your partner are sexually monogamous with a prior clean slate for STD's you do not need a condom. Many woman use a condom …just to prevent that tiny little chance of pregnancy, the pill is 99.5% effective when used as directed. Using a condom gives piece of mind if there is ever a forgotten BCP. What you don't need to use while on BCP is Emergency Contraceptives for condom breakage etc. The OCP at 99.5% protection is well over the protection one would get from the ECP.
In Birth Control
No, you do not. However, it is good to use birth control pills as extra protection from pregnancy. Condoms can tear or leak, and women sometimes forget to take the pills, so i…t is good to be in a habit of using both.
If you want to lower your chances of having a child. Nothing is one hundred percent yet. It is suggested you use both. Otherwise you or your partner have a greater risk of bec…oming pregnant. But no you do not Need to use them. It entirely depends on whether or not you want a child.
In Birth Control
No, but you should because medicine doesnt allways work and can fail.
