What is Femodene?

Femodene is a reliable combined contraceptive, commonly referred to as 'the pill'. It makes use of two hormones, a synthetic version of oestrogen (ethinylestradiol 30 micrograms) and of progestogen (gestodene 75 micrograms) 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, and most importantly, they prevent ovulation, the release of an egg from the womb. 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.

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 specifically prescribed to women who experience very painful periods (dysmenorrhoea), heavy periods (menorrhagia), irregular periods, continuous menstrual bleeding or premenstrual tension.
  • Femodene is also a treatment for endometriosis, a common condition, which 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 as the hormones from this pill leave your system.

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 or other form of barrier contraceptive.

Take on the first day of your period to get almost instant protection. You should try and take your Femodene pill at as close to the same time every day as you can. This may help you get into a routine. Each Femodene tablet should be swallowed with a drink, with or without food. Do not store above 25°C. Protect from light. Do not use your Femodene tablets after the expiry date printed on the package.

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 happens if I miss a dose?

If you happen to forget to swallow your Femodene pill at the normal time, take is as soon as your can. However, if you realise that you've missed it by 24 hours or more, it is advised to follow these guidelines:

  • If you have accidentally missed one Femodene tablet, then take it as soon as you can. Sometimes this might mean taking two pills at the same time. After this has been done, you can then continue taking the rest of the pack as instructed by your doctor.
  • If you miss two or more Femodene pills, you will be at risk of falling pregnant, should you engage in unprotected intercourse. However, take the missed pill (or pills) as soon as you remember. Sometimes this may mean taking two tablets at the same time. Due to the way the treatment works, you're advised to use condoms or other forms of contraception for the next seven days.

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

What side effects are there with Femodene pills?

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
  • 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
  • Weight loss

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

Coming off 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
  • 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, but is also available for download towards 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 therefore you should use another form of contraception (such as condoms) for 14 days after taking it.
