How do you remember to take your BC every day?

What do you use to remind yourself? do you have a reminder set on you cell phone that goes off every day? A sticky note on your mirror? How do you do it?

  • I take it at bedtime everyday. I know I will go to bed everyday LOL but since everything else seems to vary, bedtime was the easiest one for me.

    my friend's hubby's watch has an alarm set to beep when she needs to take hers.

  • Well I've had my tubes tied for 20 years now, but before that when I was on the pill, I remembered to take it every day because if I didn't that meant I would get pregnant! That was enough of a reminder for me, LOL!! But seriously, when I was younger and first started taking them, yes, I put a note on my dresser mirror so I saw it every morning and took my pill.

  • I don't :O ..... now I have two kids... lol. I'm no good with pills, if I needed pills to survive, I'd die, I hate pills.

    We only want two anyway so the hubby's getting snipped.

  • I used to set my alarm clock to go off BEFORE I woke up every morning. When I had to wake up to take it, I never missed one. But I was, like, psycho about not getting pregnant lol. Now I think I would probably set my cell phone (but I'm pregnant, no need lol)

  • When you find a good way to remember, let me know. I can't figure it out. I always seem to remember an hour later, then I'm like OH CRAP lol
