Are you talking about pills here? If you are, pills (used correctly) will prevent pregnancy 99 times out of a hundred. Condoms will prevent pregnancy about 93 times out of a hundred. BUT, condoms also help prevent infection.

If I were on birth control should your boyfriend still need to wear a condom?

Birth control is only made to prevent pregnancy. Birth control does not prevent you from STI's/STD's. So if you are not in a monogamous relationship, meaning you or your sexual partner have intercourse with other people, then a condom should be worn to protect you and your partner. However, a condom is not necessary to prevent you from getting pregnant while on birth control, because if you birth control is taken everyday at the same time, you birth control is 99.99% effective. If you are sure that it is safe for your health to engage in sexual intercourse without a condom, then a condom is not necessary if you trust that your partner has no STD's.

I would still recommend condoms because birth control does not protect you against STIsNo 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.

Using a condom is very good. This will give you 100% protection against pregnancy when used in conjunction with birth control. However if you had intercourse without using a condom during the first month of starting birth control then there is a risk of pregnancy. Because your period hasn't arrived yet I would recommend you perform a pregnancy test.

Is the condom more effective than the birth control pill?

Pills are more effective at preventing pregnancy than the condom is, but the condom can offer prevention of disease, and the pill can't. That's why using both together is the best option -- it maximized both pregnancy prevention and disease prevention.They are most effective together. No temporary birth control is 100% effective, but to answer the original question, the pill is more effective than a condom.
