How does Femodene work?
Femodene contains the two active ingredients ethinylestradiol and gestodene. These are both synthetic versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Levels of sex hormones change throughout the month when women have their usual menstrual cycle. The hormones cause the ovaries to release an egg, this process is known as ovulation and prepares the lining of the womb for possible pregnancy. If an egg hasn’t been fertilised at the end of the cycle, the hormones will drop and you will experience your monthly menstrual bleed.
When you take the pill on a daily basis, it contains hormones, which tricks your body into thinking you have already ovulated. This stops an egg from being fertilized and being released from the ovaries every month. Hormones will also increase the texture of mucus on the opening of your womb making it harder for sperm to reach an egg, which can result in pregnancy.
How do I take Femodene?
Femodene is taken at the same time daily for 21 consecutive days and then a rest for seven days during this time you will experience your menstrual bleed. After the 7-day rest you must start taking the tablets again even if you still have your period. This is very important to make sure you are protected against pregnancy.
Are there any side effects?
People react differently to different medications and there are possible side effects you need to be aware of but not everybody will experience side effects. They include:
- Sore and tender breasts
- Mood swings
- Lack of sex drive
- Weight loss or gain
- Bleeding and spotting
- Nausea and vomiting
- Changes in menstrual cycle
Taking a contraceptive pill regularly usually helps women with their periods and may result in lighter, less painful and regular menstrual cycles. Some birth control pills are prescribed to women for a range of different conditions including; weight loss, acne, heavy periods amenorrhoea (lack of period), dysfunctional bleeding, premenstrual syndrome, and endometriosis.
