Let me explain to you with an example suppose you have taken the pill at one PM today then you have to take the next pill before four PM next day else it will put you at the risk of getting pregnant. It is better that you set a reminder to take the pill. There are many birth control pill apps that you can download on the mobile and that will help you to take your pill on time.
