Notification with an Alarm Schedulling in Xamarin.Android doesn't work well

Am trying to make an Alarm notify on a scheduled time from my Sqlite, but the Alarm notifies only when i launch the Application, why is this

Below is how am Implementing my Alarm class:

public class AlarmImplementation 
        public AlarmImplementation()

        public async void MakeAlarm()
            MedicationDatabase db = new MedicationDatabase();
            //This method has the list of time in Sqlite
            var alarm_list = db.GetAlarmList();
            //Debug.WriteLine(" Time -- : "+ m.ToString());
            var message = "Hello Its me new one ";
            var title = "Diabetics App";
            //looping time from Sqlite 
            foreach (var list in alarm_list)
                var hour = Int32.Parse(list.Substring(0, 2));
                var minute = Int32.Parse(list.Substring(3, 2));
                Debug.WriteLine("Hour : " + hour + "\n");
                Debug.WriteLine("Minute   " + minute + "\n");

                Intent myintent = new Intent(Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Context, typeof(AlarmReceiver));
                myintent.PutExtra("message", message);
                myintent.PutExtra("title", title);
                PendingIntent pendingintent = PendingIntent.GetBroadcast(Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Context, 0, myintent, PendingIntentFlags.UpdateCurrent);

                Java.Util.Date date = new Java.Util.Date();
                Java.Util.Calendar cal = Java.Util.Calendar.Instance;
                cal.TimeInMillis = Java.Lang.JavaSystem.CurrentTimeMillis();
                cal.Set(Java.Util.CalendarField.HourOfDay, hour);
                cal.Set(Java.Util.CalendarField.Minute, minute);
                cal.Set(Java.Util.CalendarField.Second, 0);
                //  PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.GetBroadcast(this, 0, alarmIntent, PendingIntentFlags.UpdateCurrent);
                AlarmManager alarmManager = Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Context.GetSystemService(Android.Content.Context.AlarmService) as AlarmManager;
                alarmManager.Set(AlarmType.RtcWakeup, cal.TimeInMillis, pendingintent);


Now when you look at my code above , I get time from my Sqlite then
i wire it in the AlarmManager.

Then in the code below i think i call the MakeAlarm Method in the

This is my MainActivity class:

 public class MainActivity : global::Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.FormsAppCompatActivity
        protected override void OnCreate(Bundle bundle)
            TabLayoutResource = Resource.Layout.Tabbar;
            ToolbarResource = Resource.Layout.Toolbar;
            //            ActionBar.Hide();


            global::Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(this, bundle);

            AlarmImplementation a = new AlarmImplementation();

            Task startupWork = new Task(() => { a.MakeAlarm(); });

            LoadApplication(new App());


My Question is how can i make an Alarm notify on a scheduled time
without pressing a Button, since i have my time in the Sqlite.
