Hi Anon
If you take your birth control pills as prescribed, there is no need to use condoms as a back up although condoms are a good idea to help prevent STI's. Pills are up to 99% effective when taken as prescribed - every day at around the same time. You are also protected during your 7 days of inactive pills.
