Do Text Messages Help You Remember Birth Control? Um, Not So Much.

The other day we saw a new Text4baby service that's free and offers useful advice. That said, not all cell phone uses come in handy. For example, a new study notes that cell phone text message -- and the buzz or beep that signals its arrival -- may not help a woman at all when it comes to remembering to take her daily birth control pill. Missed birth control pills account for about one in five unintended pregnancies in the U.S. annually so a Boston Medical Center team decided to see if text message reminders would help. How they did this was some women received a daily text message reminder to take their birth control pills. Other women got no text reminder but did get some encouragement at the study's outset to use their own reminder tricks. During the three-month study, none of the women got pregnant but that was just luck because both groups included women who forgot to take their daily pill. On average, both groups missed a monthly average of about five pills. This is not such a shock as many women do get pregnant only to claim, "But I was on the pill!" I suggest a better reminder such as leaving your pills by the coffee pot or your toothbrush - or somewhere else you're sure to see them each day. *Source
