In brief: Time you remember

The best time to take the birth control pill is the time that is the easiest to remember. Some women choose to make taking the pill part of their daily routine (like after brushing their teeth), so they do not miss a pill.
Forgetting two or more pills can decrease the effectiveness of preventing unintended pregnancy.
