I just started Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control today, when is it safe to have sex without a condom?

In brief: 7 days

With the birth control pill, you should usually use additional protection, like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex, until you've used the method correctly for the first 7 days.

Also as a reminder, birth control pills do nothing with respect to protecting you from sexually transmitted diseases.
