Me and my bf have gotten tested for STD and any other thing and we're great! But do we have to still use condoms? Is it ok to just use birth control?

In brief: Depends

It's great that you two had the tests done.
If you two are going to be responsible and remained monogamous, then using birth control is adequate to prevent pregnancy. You will need to discuss with your gynecologist regarding what type of birth control is most suitable for you.

In brief: Yes.

If you want the most effective, foolproof protection you can get from unwanted pregnancy and still want to have the kinds of sex that present pregnancy risks, then you’ll want to use dual protection: to use two methods, not just one, because using two is always more effective.
If you’re comfortable with or prefer less protection than two methods can offer, then it’s okay to only use one method.
