Pill vs. Patch


I'm presently on the pill, but debating switching to the patch.

The pill worked well for me for awhile, but due to a new inconsistent work schedule my taking it the same time every day--or remembering to take it at all😬--has dropped off. I've played around with different times of day, but the new sporadic schedule is making it hard to be consistent.

I'm thinking a patch would be easier to remember because it's not a daily thing, but am less attracted to the idea that it's visible, so anyone out in public who sees it, knows what's up.

What are the pros/cons to the patch? How do you remember to take your pill daily? What time of day do you take your pill?
