Femodene Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits?

Femodene pills are prescribed to women who suffer from painful periods (dysmenorrhoea), heavy periods (menorrhagia), irregular periods, premenstrual tension or endometriosis, because it's proven to treat symptoms.

This contraceptive also improves acne, reduces breakthrough bleeding, improves excessive body hair (hirsutism) and treats polycystic ovary syndrome.

How does Femodene work?

Femodene pills stop you from conceiving in three ways. The artificial oestrogen, called ethinylestradiol, stops you ovulating. The artificial progestogen, called gestodene, thickens cervical mucous and stops the womb lining from thickening.

These three actions mean that, in the extremely rare case that an egg was released or sperm could reach it, any fertilised eggs can't implant in the womb lining so conception is prevented.

Who can take it?

Certain medical conditions mean it may be unsafe for you to use Femodene pills, such as a historic or current case of heart of circulation problems, liver problems, depression, diabetes or bowel disease.

Some medications will speed up the breakdown of the hormones in Femodene pills, making them less effective. Taking this particular contraceptive can also make other medications less effective. This is why it's important you tell your doctor if you're taking any other medication.

How do you take it?

You'll need to take one Femodene pill at the same time every day, for 21 days. After these three weeks you'll have a week when you don't need to take pills. You will still be protected from pregnancy during this time, and it's also likely that you'll experience a withdrawal bleed.

If you decide to start using this pill on the first day of your period, it will be effective immediately. You can start using it up until the fifth day of your period, but it will take seven days to start working. This means you need to use another contraceptive method for those seven days.

What are the side effects?

Femodene pills are known to cause weight changes. They can also cause you to develop yellow-brown patches on the skin and reduce your libido, though this is uncommon. Other side effects of the combined pill include nausea, headaches, water retention and breast tenderness.

If you're unlucky enough to develop side effects, they will usually become milder with time as your body gets used to the hormones. If you develop side effects and they don't disappear after a few months, if you develop serious side effects or you're worried about any side effects, you should visit your doctor.

How can I buy Femodene online?

If you want to buy Femodene pills online, you'll need to complete a consultation first. We insist all patients do this, because it allows a registered doctor to check that it's safe for you to use this contraceptive. Femodene is only available with a prescription, and the consultation is a necessary, legal process that allows a doctor to write you a prescription if it's appropriate to do so.

Once you've selected your contraceptive and made a payment, your prescription is forwarded to our registered pharmacy. A qualified, experienced pharmacist will check your Femodene pills before sending them to you via free next-day delivery.
