When do you take it so that you never forget?

I have to start this Sunday to help control my bleeding. I have iron deficiency anemia.

Any suggestions welcome.

Put it next to your tooth brush and either take it in the morning when you brush or at night when you brush.  Thats what I do with mine.  Been on the pill for a while and the only time I got pregnant it was planned and I had stopped on purpose.

I'm not on the pill, but I take medication for another reason. I always take my medicine right when I'm done brushing my teeth before bed.

I have an alarm set for 830a. That's usually the time I'm leaving the house so I take it before walking out the door. If I'm in bed still, just wake up and take it really quick.

A pill app? Lol that's awesome. I guess for those who have a whole schedule of meds, that's a great idea!

I may check that out.

Yeah, it's really great for remembering. I don't want to ever miss a pill, lol. It helped me form a routine so now I hardly even use the app.

In the morning when I wake up.

I take it for the same reason, I'm anemic and practically bleed to death when not on the pill.

Does the pill help then? Do you also take iron?

I started losing my hair... like... a lot! I also had a lot of symptoms of iron deficiency anemia... forgetting what Im' saying mid sentence, couldn't think of simple words, tired easily (but my almost 2 year old is a terrible sleeper and wakes us all of the time)... but it was the hair that was liike... holy sh*t!!!I also had surgery 2 months ago which can make the hair loss worse. (an abdominal repiar/tummy tuck - hernia repair).

Anyway... my periods are awful. So I'm hoping it helps.
