You have an option to click on today’s pill on the virtual blister strip to confirm you’ve taken the pill for the day. Selecting it a second time marks the pill with an X indicating that the pill was missed for that day. Selecting today’s pill a third time will return the pill back to the original “not taken” setting in case you had not taken it. To help avoid any mistakes you will only be able to change your pill status for your current day and past days. The pills for the next day onwards will be disabled.
Virtual blister strips begin with the word “Start” and contain arrows to guide you to the next day.
Note: It is best practice to start your blister strip at the same point as your app starts to successfully monitor the pill per day count.
A reminder is displayed to count down till your next pill. If you’ve missed taking the pill at the set time then the timer changes to indicate the time the pill is overdue by.
Below that is an approximate count of how many days remain till the start of your menstrual cycle. This is not shown if you have selected Azalia®. Some women may not start bleeding on the first day but within the 7 day break from the pill. If you experience bleeding outside of the 7 days while taking the pill then you may want to consult your GP. For Azalia® when a strip is empty, you must start with a new pack the next day – without interruption and without waiting for bleeding.
When you go on holiday to a destination in a different time zone it is important to continue to take your pills at 24 hour intervals. This app will keep that 24 hour timing as long as your phone remains set to Irish time, which may be different to the local time at your holiday destination. For example, if the app is set to remind you daily at 10am Irish Summer Time (i.e. 09:00 GMT) and you travel to Melbourne then you will be reminded to take your next pill at 19:00 local Melbourne time. If you change your app reminder settings to the local time at your destination, then you will need to calculate the difference in hours to make sure your pills are taken at the correct time. It is your responsibility to make sure your pills are being taken correctly.
You will also be notified with a pop-up message if you’ve not visited the app for more than one day. You can then choose to mark all these previous days with missed or taken pills. These can be adjusted afterwards manually by selecting the pills taken to correct the display and your history records.
