How does Bedsider help women remember to use their birth control?

Birth control effectiveness isn’t just determined by the method. A patient’s typical use also influences efficacy.

Bedsider provides free birth control reminders for the pill, patch, ring, and shot to keep patients on time and on track, including when to get their prescription refilled. We deliver original reminder content through a smartphone app. For patients who require a discreet option, patients can select a reminder that never even references birth control. We also allow users to create a custom reminder which they can write themselves in whatever language they prefer. Patients simply download the app, enter their method, and schedule whichever type of reminder (clever, discreet, or custom) they prefer.

Appointment reminders are provided as well. And we’ve also launched a program where Providers can offer customized reminders with a clinic name and phone number. For more information, send us an email at providers@bedsider.org.
