I think the best thing is to get tested immediately whether you plan to wait or not because you never can know for sure that things won't get carried away. I honestly, do not trust condoms. As bad as this was, my partner and I did not use condoms at all and still don't. We both were tested & I get tested every 6-12 months anyways as a requirement for a shot I have to take. Also, I've been on Depo-Provera shots since I was 14 due to having endometriosis. That's a birth control shot, but I've had to be on it to keep my endometriosis from "growing." I also am unable to have children, but lost 2 so pregnancy is not a worry for us although I do wish it was different for when the day comes that I want kids of my own rather than only having my familie's children to raise. I guess I'm getting off subject, but I do think waiting and being tested is the very best way to go.
Sloppy Donkey is right, it does take a lot of trust to put your life in your partner's hands and that's exactly what no condom is. My partner and I have been in our monogamous relationship for 5 years and I do trust him with my life so I don't worry about STD'S and unfortunately we don't have to worry about pregnancy.
