Hints and Tips

You need to take your pill every day at the same time for it to be effective

If you start by taking your pill in the morning time, it gives you more time to remember to take it during the day if you forget first thing in the morning

To make sure you don’t forget to take it, link it with an activity you automatically do in the morning, like brushing your teeth, washing your face or having breakfast

Use a pill reminder App. Download the “My OC” Pill reminder app here

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
