My new boyfriend says he's tested negative for std's. Should I require him to use a condom although i'm pregnant?

In brief: Yes

Use a condom until you have actually seen his lab results on paper, including that for herpes and hpv.
Also use a condom if there is any, even remote, chance that he is not monogamous with you. Some stds affect the fetus.

Herpes is often without symptoms. Do not catch it while pregnant, it can be severe.
