Femodene is a highly effective oral combined contraceptive pill, with the synthetic female hormones ethinylestradiol and gestodene (oestrogen and progesterone). This hormonal contraceptive overrides the standard functions of the menstrual cycle, tricking the body to believe ovulation has already occurred thereby preventing the release of an egg for fertilisation.
The active ingredients in the Femodene pill work by preventing standard bodily functions that prepare the female body for fertilisation of an egg. This contraceptive treatment comes in a strip of 21 tablets, with each strip containing tablets with differing levels of the artificial oestrogen and progestogen. The active ingredients (ethinylestradiol/gestodene) prevent an egg from ripening and being released from the ovaries each month, meaning a very low chance of conception. The vaginal fluid is also thickened which helps in preventing sperm from reaching an egg and fertilising it.
The Femodene pill not only provides the standard contraceptive cover required, but also certain non-contraceptive benefits such as:
Femodene contraceptive pill is suitable for use by women between the ages of 18-35 who require an effective hormonal contraceptive treatment. It is essential when taking the online consultation to state accurately any other medication you may be using as the interactions between the treatments may not allow suitability.
Certain women may not be suitable to buy Femodene, especially if they are:
Certain women may also be allergic to the synthetic ingredients contained within the Femodene pill, and may be unable to use it for this reason, if this is the case, please inform your doctor as an alternative treatment may be more suitable.
Generally hormonal contraceptives such as the Femodene pill, work effectively to prevent pregnancy only when taken regularly. When using this treatment, it is important to build a daily routine of when to take the pill to ensure you don't forget.
After the 7 day break is complete, ensure you start a new strip immediately to remain covered. During the break you will usually expect to have a withdrawal bleed. If a withdrawal bleed is not present after you have have taken all the pills correctly, it is highly unlikely you will be pregnant. If you do however miss two withdrawal bleeds in a row, then contact a doctor or health specialist as soon as possible, as there is a possibility you may be pregnant, and this treatment should not be taken during pregnancy.
If you forget to take your pill, ensure you use it as soon as you remember and carry on with your usage as normal. If you forget over a 24 hour period, do not attempt to take two pills to make up for the forgotten dose. Use one pill as you normally would, but be aware that you may not be fully covered for another 5-7 days, so it is essential that you use an additional contraceptive barrier such as a male or female condom during this period.
Femodene contraceptive pill, like other prescription contraceptive medication may cause side effects as each woman reacts in a different way. The most commonly reported side effects include:
Fortunately, these usually subsid after a short while as your body becomes used to the differing hormonal cycles. If adverse symptoms do persist, please contact your doctor for further advise as an alternative contraceptive method may be more suitable.
