NuvaTime Reminds You When to Change Your NuvaRing!

When it comes to using hormonal birth control, the NuvaRing is one of the easiest. Since you keep the two-inch flexible ring inside you for three weeks at a time, you only have to think about it twice a month — when you insert it and when you remove it, in order to get your period. But since it's not something you have to bother with every day like you do the pill, it can be easy to forget about altogether.

So if you're forgetful by nature, you're in luck! NuvaRing now offers a downloadable timer you can install on your computer called NuvaTime. Just fill out the form, click Mac or PC, set the time, and you're done! It'll go off when you need to remove your NuvaRing, and it'll go off again when it's time to insert a new one a week later. Pretty genius if you ask me!

I think this is neat! Then again I'm one of those people who needs to set my phone alarm so I remember to take my pill.

I have a paper diary that I note this in, but yeah, I agree with skigirl, what's wrong with ical or whatever calendar application you have? And cjmara, did you have any side effects from doing that? If there aren't any, I'd prefer to have no periods! I usually only do what you do if I have a special occasion, like a pool party or a holiday. Not sure where I got the idea that it'd be bad for you to do that continuously, but that's the idea I had.

Thank you, Dear!! You have no idea how I've been struggling with remembering this, one would think it's easy-peasy, but for me it's just not.. Now it's on my desktop, so smooth.

Been on Nuvaring 2 years, and had NuvaTime installed on my computer for the first year, but at least a couple of times it crashed and therefore didn't tell me when to take the ring out. So if you want to give this a try, have a backup such as writing it on another calendar.

It's handy, but I use Nuva Ring on continuous use, which means I keep it in 4 weeks and then change it right out (I don't have a period). So it's pretty useless to me because it pops up reminders that are only for on-label use.

i don't get why things have to be harder than they really are? set your outlook calendar to pop up a reminder...set an alarm on your cell phone...?
