How does Femodette work?
Levels of sex hormones change throughout the month when women have their usual menstrual cycle. The hormones cause the ovaries to release an egg known as ovulation, preparing 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 Femodette contraceptive 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 Femodette?
Femodette is taken at the same time daily for 21 days straight, with a 7-day break. You will then have a period for 7 days whilst taking no pills. It is very important to start taking the tablets again after the 7 days break even if you still have a menstrual bleed. You must do this to continue to be protected from pregnancy.
There are always side effects associated with medications however people react differently and some will never experience any. Here are possible side effects you need to be aware of. 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
