After you're done with it. Unless you mean totally stop forever. Then a whole array of things come into play, mostly very personal.

STIs
Pregnancy
The two biggest items.

I don't think there's a set time limit. I think it depends on each individual couple, their trust, whether or not they are monogamous, once adequate STI/STD testing has been done, and once they are willing to either be have a child, be sterilized, or use other birth control and the chances of having an unintentional pregnancy based on the failure rate of whatever method they choose.

I think that if you are planning to have sex with someone you should go get tested WITH them. Condoms break and herpes can be transmitted even if a condom is being worn.
It's a scary world out there and no matter how long you've been with someone or how much you love and trust them, that doesn't mean they're safe. Go get tested with your partner, and once you are on BC and you've seen proof that you are both 100% free of disease, that's the only time you should ever stop using condoms.

I stopped using condoms when we I got tested for STI/STD (he was a virgin so he didn't need to get tested) and I was on the pill. We are in a monogomous relationship.

I'm in a monogamous relationship. We've both had STI tests and do not need condoms for that purpose; however, I have serious physical reactions to any type of hormonal birth control. As we don't want children yet, it's healthiest and easiest for us to continue using condoms. I think the choice depends on the individual circumstances of the couples.

I had always been convinced that I would never engage in unprotected sex until I was married. However, after meeting my current partner he managed to change my opinion. I had never felt this way about anyone before and trust him completely. We both got tested in additon to me getting all HPV shots before to make it as safe as unprotected sex can be. since I couldn't give him my actual virginity I decided that I wanted to do something special for him so I went on birth control. It has made our relationship so much stronger.

It depends on the couple, whether or not they want children, if they trust their partner completely, and have been tested for STDS. We stopped using condoms after 8 months, it may sound bad but we were ready for a baby. But I had also had a few scares that I may have not been able to have children, so we wanted to try for one. I ended up getting pregnant after 6 months of trying, and even after having my son we still do not use them, but I am on the shot.

Gonna chime in here, from the perspective of a gay man. If I was giving advice to a gay couple, these would be my recommended prerequisites.

- After you had been tested together, for EVERYTHING, especially HIV
- Are in a long term, stable monogamous relationship, that you expect to last at least twice as long as it has already lasted.
- Have had a serious talk about why you want to go bareback.
- Discuss whether any of the desires that make you want this can be fulfilled in other ways.

Don't guilt trip your partner into going bareback (If you really love me...) This should be a decision that you make together.

Now, that all being said, I personally am uncomfortable with the idea of unprotected sex, even in a monogamous relationship. The idea of an uncovered penis going into an ass, is kinda gross, and not sexy to me. I'm not going to deny people the right to go bareback, if they want to. But it still makes me uncomfortable. It is much easier to just say "I will use a condom, every time, no matter what" than "I will use a condom every time, unless..."

We stopped using a condom shortly after I got my IUD (best decision of my life!!) which was 2 years into our relationship.

But we do not use a condom because we have an alternate form of birth control, are completely monogamous and are tested for STDs once a year.

But I do agree with the previous posts that it all depends on the couple, whether or not they are monogamous, and trust one another.
