In brief: No

Birth control pills by no means is protective for any std.
Condoms on the other hand are protective. The best protection for std is monogamy.

In brief: NO!

The birth control method that protects best against pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease is abstinence; barrier methods (condoms) offer some std protection but not complete.
Other birth control methods like the pill, iuds, depo (shot), patch, and tubal ligation offer no protection against sexually transmitted diseases.
