This technology works as a birth control reminder for girls and women who are using the pill to prevent pregnancy or for hormonal purposes.
The system works with a device that attaches to the birth control sheet and senses when a pill has been taken from it. The accompanying app displays the effectiveness of the birth control, the remaining pills and "patterns concerning contraceptive use" for the user to track. The app only sends the user an alert if they have forgotten to take the pill -- it does not function as an alarm reminder each day.
The risk of pregnancy exponentially increases when women forget to take even one pill and this birth control reminder system ensures that users remain on-schedule without sending them constant daily alerts.
