Remind yourself of taking the pill

PillReminder is an application set to help you remember to take your contraception method (pill, patch, ring) at an exact time every day. The app also stops on the pause period and starts again in the next period.

First of all, you'll need to select your contraception type and the number of pills you usually take. After configuring that, you can choose to enable the alarm and the time you want it to sound. The design is good and colorful, very girly; as for the preferences, you can easily change the information by accessing to the main settings.

A helpful tool for women who take contraception methods. bropatapps is the developer of PillReminder Lite and the full version with extra features and the possibility of creating themes.

    When I dismiss a notification, another one pops up. When I dismiss that one as well, it marks the NEXT DAY's pill as taken. And there was nothing I could do to activate the next day's reminder after that.

    love this app! Best one I've seen that works well for Nuvaring and other non-daily forms of birth control. temporary time delay is like a snooze button, great for if you're on the go at reminder time.

    Don't like the new setup at all. App updated and now cannot easily change my start date by clicking on calendar days. Uninstalling

    Until a month ago i would have gave this 5stars but the alarm randomly stopped working and never goes off. It still notifys you just no alarm. Off to find a different app.
