Hello. My boyfriend and I are interested in having condom-less sex. I want to make sure I’ve given it careful consideration before we do it. I understand that condoms protect us against unwanted pregnancy and from spreading/contracting STIs, and so I want to make sure I do all the right things to protect us both.
Details about us/ how we are preparing for condom-less sex:
- We are in a monogamous relationship
- I have the copper IUD
- I also take the combined hormone pill
- I was a virgin before we had sex with a condom, and my parents did not pass any STIs to me; so I really have no STI risk
- I have an upcoming appointment for my final round of HPV shot, and we will not have condom-less sex until after this shot series is complete
- He has been tested for both syphilis and HIV, both negative
- He has NOT been tested for chlamydia or gonorrhea; he lives in another country and these tests run hundreds of dollars there, unlike syphilis/HIV which are free
- He's said he has no known exposure to an STI
- I have been vaccinated for Hepatitis A and B, I did not ask him if he has been vaccinated for these yet
Given this information, is it safe to go ahead and pursue condom-less sex? If we do, I intend on getting tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea at my health clinic every few months, as the doctors tend to recommend.
