Pills protect her only from pregnancy and not from STD or HIV. Once got HIV then you have to have lifelong treatment and less life expectancy. So always have protected sex. Convince your girl friend also. Doctor

dont do it... you have no idea if shes has an STD or not... and its not worth the risk... if she keeps pushing for it and you dont want to, than you need to find someone else who will respect you ... if you have only been together for 6 weeks and you are not comfortable enough to talk to her about STDs than you arent ready for sex... you NEED to be able to openly talk about sex, STDs and the possibility of pregnancy in order to actually have sex because those are all things that are a direct result of sex... and if you have to ask that question on here, you are not ready... all you would need to say is "do you have an STD?... I want us to go get tested together first"... if you're not able to say that to her face, you are not ready
