No, Birth Control pills can not protect you from AIDS. The only protection is to use a condom, every time, or not have sex at all. strictly speaking you are not infected by AIDS. The infection is HIV which may or may not develop into AIDS in the future. there are people who have been living with HIV for 20 years or more who have not (yet) developed AIDS.
