Starter Kit for Forgetful Women

Starter Kit for Forgetful Women
Organon, Inc., included helpful suggestions for forgetful pill-takers in the starter kit they distributed in 1993 with their Desogen oral contraceptive. The kit contained a bar of soap, a toothbrush, and a "Remember Me" sticker for the bathroom mirror with the slogan, "Wash your face, brush your teeth, take your pill, once a day, every day, at the same time." The tablets came in a calendar compact with a choice of stickers that enabled the pill-taker to start her cycle of pills any day of the week.
