Absolutely NO!: Birth control pills offer no protection against sexually transmitted diseases, including aids. If you are not sure or your current std status, you should have you blood work done, and always have your partner use condoms, or some other std protective device. If you are in a monogamous relationship, i.e. The two of you have sexual relations with only each other, if both test negative for std's O.K.

Not just pregnancy: Safe sex is not just preventing pregnancy. It is preventing as many of the stds out there that could infect you during sexual intercourse. So, no. Birth control pills will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.
