I am nineteen and in a sexually active relationship with my boyfriend. Right now we are always using condoms when we have sex, but I am trying to figure out whether I should also start taking birth control pills, specifically Yaz. The thing is, we are in a long distance relationship right now and only see each other a couple days a month; typically having sex, at the most, four times a month. I am hesitant to try birth control pills because of possibe side effects; and my partner is okay with only using condoms. I just really cannot get pregnant right now; but I am wondering whether a condom alone would be enough to keep me from getting pregnant?
