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

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:

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.
