Hints and Tips

Use a pill reminder App to keep track of when to take your pill. Download the “My OC” Pill reminder app here

Start by taking your pill in the morning, so you have more time to remember to take it during the day in case you forget in the morning

Link it with an activity you automatically do in the morning, like brushing your teeth, washing your face or having breakfast- this way it will become part of your routine
Keep your pill pack in your purse or on your bedside table to have a constant reminder to take your pill at the same time every day

You can also set an alarm in your phone to remind you to organise your next contraceptive prescription for 6 months time. This will ensure you don’t forget to refill your prescription once you have finished all of the pill packs in your current prescription
