Femodette is a combined oral contraceptive, commonly known as 'the pill'. Femodette contains ethinylestradiol and gestodene, artificial forms of oestrogen and progestogen, and is almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy.
Femodette is monophasic, which means that you take a constant dose of hormones throughout your 21-day cycle, which reduces the likelihood of experiencing mood swings as a side effect. Femodette can also make your periods lighter and more predictable.
Femodette hormonal contraceptive pill contains both artificial oestrogen and progestogen (ethinyl estradiol 20 micrograms and gestodene 75 micrograms), and prevents ovulation in most women. It does this by letting the body think that ovulation has already occurred, so that an egg doesn't get released.
The combination of hormones also prevents the womb lining from thickening, so if an egg does get released, it can't embed itself in the womb to grow. As a final measure, it prevents sperm from entering the womb by thickening the cervical mucous.
Femodette provides almost 100% effective contraceptive cover if taken correctly. Femodette is primarily prescribed for contraceptive purposes, but it can also help to regulate your period and can help to reduce pain when you have your period. As Femodette supplies the same dose of hormones during your entire cycle, it reduces the risk of mood swings during hormonal fluctuations in your cycle.
Taking the Femodette hormonal contraceptive pill does not protect you against any sexually transmitted infections/diseases. If you've had unprotected sex, and you're worried that you may have contracted an STI, you should talk to your doctor, or visit a sexual health clinic.
Alternatively, you can take a look at some of the STI treatment options available from HealthExpress.
Femodette should be taken on the first day of your period to provide immediate contraceptive protection. Alternatively, it can be taken up to day five of your period, but you will have to wait seven days for it to take complete effect. Femodette is a 21-day pill; you take it at the same time, every day, for the full 21 days. This should be followed by a seven-day break after which you should start your new strip immediately. During the seven-day break you should be fully protected.
Femodette pills come in one standard dose. This is 20 micrograms (20 mcg) of ethinylestradiol combined with 75 micrograms (75 mcg) gestodene. This is clinically proven to be the most effective dose, whilst minimising any potential side effects.
If you happen to forget to take your Femodette pill at the scheduled time, you need to take is as soon as your remember. Nonetheless, if you find that you've missed it by 24 hours or more, it is advised that you follow the following protocol:
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.
Like most variants of the combined pill or mini-pill, Femodette presents a small risk of side effects for some women, depending on their tolerance towards the hormones used in the medication.
Some of the most common side effects are:
These side effects do sometimes occur in first time users, but tend to go away after a couple of days as your body adjusts to the contraceptive. If these side effects don't go away, or if you experience anything more serious, you should speak to your doctor who may advise you to change your contraceptive pill.
