Before my doctor prescribed me birth control, she told me how important it is to take the Pill at the same time every day to help prevent pregnancy. You can choose whatever time works for your schedule, but it is important to be consistent. I thought it would be a struggle since I can be pretty forgetful sometimes but turns out as long as I keep my pill pack in a place I’ll always remember, it’s not so hard after all.
Although I am recommending these ideas as great places to keep your birth control accessible, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about storing your pill correctly first.
Creative Places To Stash Your Pill Pack:
1. In Your Purse
I prefer to keep my pill pack in my purse, so I’ll always have it on me, even if my schedule changes and I stay out later than originally planned.
2. By Your Toothbrush
By keeping your pill pack by your toothbrush, you’re guaranteed to see it every day, which also helps keep you on schedule.
3. In the Kitchen
If you don’t leave the house without eating breakfast, you’ll see your pill pack every morning when you reach for your bowl of cereal.
4. On Your Vanity
If you do your makeup every morning at your vanity, you’ll always be sure to see your pill pack sitting there.
5. By Your Keys
If you keep your pill pack next to your keys, it will be easy to remember to take both things with you before heading out.
6. By Your Phone Charger
Sleep with your phone plugged in? Keep your pill pack next to the charger and you’ll see it when you grab your phone in the morning.
7. On Your Nightstand
Your pill pack will be right next to you when you go to sleep and as soon as you wake up.
There’s no right or wrong place to stash your pill pack, so do whatever works for you! Keep in mind, however, that you’ll want to place your pill pack out of the reach of children or pets. If you have any questions about proper storage of your birth control pills, reach out to your healthcare provider or pharmacist for more information.
