Hello, I can't remember to take my birth control pills usually and I did not like the nexaplanon, are there any other birth control methods avalible?
Remembering BC Pills: I tell my patients to leave their BC pills right next to their toothbrush as a reminder each day. Now if you don't brush every day (yuck!) or travel a lot, that will not help. For patients who tolerate BC pills but cannot remember to take them every day, the Nuvaring is a good compromise. You only have to remember to insert the ring once a month, and fewer side effects than Nex. or Depo shot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
