|I took drugs properly when I was pregnant and during breastfeeding. After that and as of today I have a lot of responsibilities that I have to wake up at 4 am and I easily forget the morning dose. But it happened when the child was around one year that I stopped taking drugs…..not a single pill for almost 6 months. I even stopped coming to the clinic. I felt that I was cured. I had gained significant weight and thought I was now ok. I also traveled to Bagamoyo and Tanga for business purposes. Then I had to bring the child to the clinic. They asked me why I had disappeared and was not taking drugs. I had no good reason.||Pregnancy and breastfeeding motivation to adherence.||Ensure baby was safe.|
|Responsibilities make it easy to forget and even stop taking drugs.||Busy|
|Forget to take drugs|
|Stopped coming to the clinic as I felt cured||Feeling well|
