Here is the bummer though - we call it safer sex, because no sex is 100% safe. The effectiveness of the condom requires that it is used correctly, and there are some sexually transmitted infections that can be transmitted skin-to-skin, where a condom does not cover. So, that said, you are doing everything you can to be safe, and if you are both monogamous, you should be good. Remember to get tested for stds when you have your annual pap test.
