What is Femodene?

Hormonal contraceptive pills are the most reliable form of contraception taken daily available on the pharmaceutical market today. Nearly 100% effective if taken properly, Femodene is available to buy from euroClinix in both a three-month and six-month supply.

The ultimate aim of combined contraceptives such as Femodene is to prevent pregnancy, however there are a number of other benefits to taking hormonal birth control. This may mean you don't use contraception for the benefit of preventing pregnancy at all, but for one or many of the following reasons:

  • Regulating periods
  • Reduce period pain
  • Makes periods lighter
  • Improve PMS symptoms
  • Decrease mood swings
  • Treating endometriosis

This medication is most often prescribed to patients who suffer from painful periods heavy periods (menorrhagia), irregular periods or incessant menstrual bleeding. These pills are also a treatment for endometriosis, a frequent condition that causes womb cell growth outside of the womb area on other cells.

How does Femodene work?

Femodene supplies the body with daily dose of synthetic hormones to help override the menstrual cycle to stop you from falling pregnant. Like all other combined pills, Femodene does this in three ways to ensure ovulation and/or conception doesn't happen.

Firstly, Femodene prevents an egg from being released by altering the natural cycle meaning your body thinks it has already ovulated. If there's no egg, there's no conception. If an egg is released, the pill helps to thicken the fluid in the womb making it significantly difficult for the sperm to reach the egg. Finally, the walls of the womb are also altered meaning that, if an egg is released, it can't attach itself to the womb lining.

Whilst Femodene is 99% effective, it must be taken correctly. If it isn't, then this can reduce this efficiency. This includes missing more than one pill in each 21-day blister pack. Also, if you happen to vomit within two hours of taking a tablet, it might not have been completely absorbed into your bloodstream. As soon as you feel better, you should take your next pill at around your usual time, and you should still remain protected against falling pregnant. Nonetheless, if you continue to vomit for more than a day, this may make the tablet less efficient.

This is a similar scenario with heavy diarrhoea for over 24 hours; this can make the tablet less efficient. However, you should keep taking each tablet at the normal set time, but treat each day that you have heavy episodes of diarrhoea as if you had forgotten to take a tablet. This means you may require emergency contraception if the effectiveness of Femodene has been compromised.

How to take Femodene?

Femodene contraceptive is very easy to take, accounting for the combined pills popularity and comes under the category of monophasic meaning it contains the same hormones in each tablet.

  • Femodene pills should be taken once a day for 21 days, after which you'll have a seven-day break from taking pills.
  • During this pill-free week, you will most likely experience a withdrawal bleed. This is just your body's way of expelling the hormones.
  • You'll remain fully protected during this week.
  • Start your next blister pack seven days later and repeat the cycle until you no longer wish to be protected.
  • If you forget one or two pills, you'll still have contraceptive cover but you'll need to take the last pill you missed and continue using the pack as normal. If you miss three or more pills, it will no longer be effective. You should use a barrier contraceptive for seven days, take the last forgotten pill and continue with the pack as usual.

When starting Femodene, if taken on day one to five of your period, you will be protected immediately. If begun at any other time, you will need to use barrier contraceptives (condoms) for the following seven days.

Femodene dosages

Femodene is a combined pill meaning it contains two active ingredients; synthetic versions of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. The amount of hormones in each tablet is exactly the same, and each blister pack is clearly marked with the days to help you keep track.

Each Femodene pill contains 75mcg of gestodene (progesterone) and 30mcg ethinylestradiol (oestrogen). This is a fairly low dosage and therefore very tolerable, especially if you're prone to experiencing side effects.

Precautions of Femodene

If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, you may not be prescribed this treatment, however other contraceptive options may be suitable for you. Therefore, if you're after pregnancy prevention, it is advised that you visit your doctor for further information.

If you've ever had blood, heart or circulatory issues or if you suffer from migraines, you might not be able to buy this treatment. It's important you discuss your medical history with a doctor or in your online consultation, so they can be sure that it's safe to prescribe you this contraceptive pill.

Femodene side effects

Any prescription medication might cause unwanted side effects, however these are unlikely and usually mild in nature, especially when beginning a new contraceptive. It's important to remember, it is not uncommon for women to experience some side effects when they start to use this contraceptive, but these should become milder with time as your body gets used to the hormones. The recommended time to continue with Femodene is the first three months. If you're still experiencing side effects beyond this point, visit your doctor to discuss your options.

The more commonly reported side effects include

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • headaches
  • weight changes
  • thrush
  • breakthrough bleeding changes to libido and fluid retention.
