What is Femodene?

Femodene is a reliable combined contraceptive commonly referred to as 'the pill'. It includes two hormones; a synthetic version of oestrogen and progestogen (ethinylestradiol 30 micrograms and gestodene 75 micrograms respectively) and provides almost 100% protection against pregnancy. As well as this, it can provide additional benefits to manage symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle.

How does Femodene work?

Combined contraceptives like Femodene prevent pregnancy in three different ways. Firstly, Femodene prevents ovulation. Secondly, they alter the lining of the womb, so if an egg does get released, it will not be able to embed itself and grow. Thirdly, it changes the lining of the cervix, so sperm won't be able to reach the womb.

Cervix UTERUS VAGINA Oestrogen and progestogen can prevent an egg from being released from the ovaries each month most of the time. Progestogen causes thinning of the endometrium (uterus lining) so, if an egg is released, it cannot implant on the wall. Lastly, progestogen also thickens the mucus in the cervix so sperm is prevented from reaching the egg.

What are the benefits of Femodene?

Femodene pills are almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy and offers almost immediate protection if taken on the first day of your period. As well as providing convenient protection, Femodene is a proven treatment for a variety of different conditions:

  • Femodene is often prescribed to women who experience very painful periods (dysmenorrhoea), heavy periods (menorrhagia), irregular periods, continuous menstrual bleeding or premenstrual tension without the need to be contraception.
  • Femodene is also a treatment for endometriosis; a common condition that causes womb cells to grow outside of the womb on other cells.

How do I take Femodene pills?

Femodene is a monophasic contraceptive pill. This means that it needs to be taken for 21 days, followed by a seven-day break. During this break, you will still be completely protected, but you may experience a withdrawal bleed.

You should try to take Femodene on the first day of your period as it will provide almost immediate protection. You can use it up to day five of your period, but it won't be fully effective for up to seven days, during which time you would still be advised to be use a condom.

If not taken on the first day of your period, use condoms for the following seven days. Take each pill around the same time every day for maximum effectiveness of over 99%. Many women set an alarm to remember their next dose. Each Femodene pill can be easily swallowed with or without drink and food. Store away from direct sunlight and under the temperature of 25°C. Double check the expiry date and patient leaflet regarding use and missed pill if unsure.

What should I do if I miss a Femodene pill?

If you happen to forget to take your pill or more than one pill in one blister pack at the usual time, follow the below protocol:

  • If you have missed one Femodene pill then take it as soon as possible unless it is close to the time of your next pill. If it is nearer to the next pill than the previous time, miss it out completely and continue with the blister pack as normal. Missing one pill in one blister pack will not affect the effectiveness and you will not need further barrier protection.
  • If you miss two or more pills in one blister pack, then you will not be protected at maximum effect. However, take the last missed pill as soon as you remember unless it is close to the time of your next pill. Do not take two pills in close proximity - this will not combat the mistake - and skip the missed pills. It is advised to use condoms or refrain from sex for the next seven days.

For more information about what to do if you've missed your dosage for a significant period, it's always best to speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

What dosages are available for Femodene?

There is one standard dosage available with Femodene: Synthetic oestrogen (ethinylestradiol 30 micrograms) and a progestogen (gestodene 75 micrograms). There are 21 pills per pack, which will last a month, including your required 7 day break where you should expect some breakthrough bleeding.

This dosage has been formulated to maintain effectiveness whilst simultaneously minimising possible side effects.[1]

What are Femodene side effects?

The majority of women can use Femodene without experiencing any side effects. However, some users do experience negative reactions, particularly women who are using the pill for the first time. These potential side effects include headaches, weight gain, breast tenderness, nausea and vomiting

Any side effects you do experience should pass quite quickly. In more rare cases, side effects can include disturbance in liver function, blood clots, depression and weight loss.

If you experience any of the above, please talk to your doctor.

Stopping Femodene

It's very common for women to ask what side effects might occur when coming off contraception. Some of the more common reactions that some women might find are spotting, cramps, acne and heavier menstruation.

What are the precautions/interactions for Femodene?

Most women over the age of 18 can buy Femodene online to prevent pregnancy. However, certain medical conditions may prohibit you from using this medication. These include a history of heart or circulation problems, liver problems, depression, diabetes, bowel diseases or blood clotting. Women who are considered obese may be unable to take this medication.

If you are currently breastfeeding, you should consider using a mini pill as an alternative contraception.

For more information about this medication's risks, precautions and interactions, please refer to the patient support leaflet, which is included with your medication and at the bottom of this page.

If I've used the morning after pill, can I use this medication?

This daily oral contraceptive is known to react badly with ulipristal, more commonly sold under the name ellaOne. If you have taken ulipristal then it can make Femodene less effective, so you should use another form of contraception (such as condoms) for 14 days after taking it.
