What is Femodette?

The primary use of Femodette is to be a hormonal contraceptive and it is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. In the form of a pill it is easily digested daily, however, the use of Femodette tablet can exceed a form of contraception. It can be issued for a number of reasons other than its primary aim:

  • Menopause
  • Recurrent miscarriage
  • Dysfunctional uterine bleeding
  • Painful periods
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Premenstrual symptoms (PMS) such as mood swings,
  • Ovarian development failure
  • Breast cancer
  • Hormonal abnormalities in women manifesting through abnormal hair growth on face and body
  • Bone fragility
  • Prostate cancer
  • Vaginal inflammation
  • Loss of bone mass
  • Acne
  • Puberty delays in girls
  • Pregnancy prevention

Hows does Femodette work?

Femodette works like all other combined pills by preventing pregnancy in three ways. Firstly it prevents ovulation the vast majority of the time meaning no egg is made and released for the sperm to impregnate. Secondly, it can thicken the womb lining making it difficult for an egg to attach itself if one is produced. Lastly, Femodette changes the fluid in the womb, making it thicker, so sperm can't reach the egg easily.

How to take Femodette

This contraceptive is a monophasic pill which means each tablet contains an equal dose of hormones in it.

  • The recommended intake covers 21 days one tablet daily and a seven-day break from pill taking once the 21-tablet pack is finished.
  • Femodette should be taken at the same time every day for those 21 days. Each tablet can be taken with or without water, and with or without food.
  • During this seven-day interval, the hormonal levels in the woman's body drop. This causes a withdrawal bleed similar to the normal period. During this seven-day interval, you are still 99% protected against pregnancy.
  • The next pack should be started immediately after the lapse of the seven-day off pill break even if the bleeding has not stopped.
  • Femodette tablets come in a user-friendly pack marked with the calendar days to help patients remember to take the pill on a daily basis three weeks consecutively followed by a week break. The next pill pack should be started on time after the seventh day.

    It's important to note that certain aspects can affect the success rate of the combined pill, including the brand Femodette. This includes sickness such as diarrhoea and vomiting, or certain other medications at the same time.

    How to start Femodette

    For best results, it is recommended that you start taking the pill from the very first day of your period. This will ensure immediate protection and you will not need to use extra protective methods.

    You may also start taking it between day two and five of your menstrual cycle without any other protection required at the beginning of intake. If you have a short-lasting period, though, with bleeding occurring every 23 days or less, starting on the fifth day may not guarantee immediate contraceptive efficacy. In this case, it is best to seek medical advice as to whether or not you should use any additional contraceptive method for the first seven days.

    You can start taking Femodette at any other time in your cycle, however, if you do the protective effect of the tablet will not be immediate. In such a case it is advisable that you take extra precautions, such as condoms or avoid having sexual intercourse for the first seven days of intake.

    What if I miss a dose?

    If you miss a pill, it is best you take it as soon as you remember, ideally within 12 hours of the usual time ensuring full contraception protection, even if this means taking two pills the same day. If the dose is missed for longer than 24 hours, additional protective methods are necessary. In this case, only the last missed pill should be taken omitting the other missed tablets.

    If tablets were missed during the last seven days of the pack, the next pack should then be started at once without the one-week break from pill taking. Meanwhile, no withdrawal bleed should be expected. Bleeding will occur once the pack is finished. In some cases, breakthrough bleeding may occur even while you are on pills. This is not clinically significant or alarming. If you do not experience any bleeding after finishing the second pack, it is best to rule out the possibility of pregnancy before starting a new one.

Femodette side effects

Hormonal contraceptives such as Femodette are largely compatible with many women and come with no side effects, especially exceeding the first three months. If you do happen to be experiencing side effects, these can include vomiting and diarrhoea - which can diminish the contraceptive's efficacy - preventing its full absorption by the body. If you experience any of these symptoms within four hours of taking the pill, you should continue treatment. However, it is best to consider additional contraception (excluding the rhythm and temperature methods) while the gastro-intestinal symptoms persist and for seven days following such episodes. In case these seven days run beyond the end of the pack, you should start a new pack without the usual break. Withdrawal bleeding is not to be expected in this situation before the second pack is finished. If no bleeding occurs during the off-pill period, it is best to consult your physician to confirm you are not pregnant before starting a new pack. If the gastro-intestinal disorder persists for an extended period of time, you should consider additional protection.

Other side effects may include; blood vessel blocking or formation of blood clots, formation of coronary or cerebral blood clots, rising blood pressure, weight gain, headache, breakthrough bleeding, breast discomfort, suppression of libido, aggravation of postmenopausal symptoms, increase risk of irregular bleeding, migraine, breast pain or tenderness and stomach pain.

There may be additional uncommon and rare side effects, which will be written in the patient leaflet present in every pill pack.

Femodette Precautions

  • Venuous thromboembolism – you have been diagnosed with VTE and follow anticoagulant treatment or have a family history of deep venuous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Hereditary or acquired proneness to develop VTE (e.g.: APC-resistance, including Factor V Leiden, antithrombin-III-deficiency, protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency)
  • Have undergone a complex surgery requiring prolonged bed confinement
  • High risk of developing VTE due to presence of multiple risk factors
  • Confirmed presence or risk of arterial thromboembolism (ATE)
  • Arterial thromboembolism – current ATE or history thereof (myocardial infarction or prodromal condition – chest angina)
  • Cerebrovascular disease – current stroke or history thereof or prodromal condition (transient ischaemic attack (TIA))
  • Hereditary or acquired proneness to arterial thromboembolism risks such as hyperhomocysteinaemia or anti-phospholipid antibodies
  • A history of migraine with focal neurological symptoms
  • High risk of developing ATE due to presence of multiple risk factors or of one major risk factor such as diabetes melitus with associated vascular symptoms, severe hypertension and severe dyslipoproteinaemia
  • Diagnosed with or have a have a history of hepatic disease
  • Presence of liver tumours or history of it
  • Diagnosed with or have a history of breast cancer
  • Hypersensitivity to the active substances or any of the excipients in this product
  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

    Following recent childbirth and provided that you are not breastfeeding, you can begin Femodette after 21 days post natural delivery, if there are no signs of puerperal complications and the patient is fully recovered. Use of extra contraceptive precautions for the first seven days of intake will be required, though. Given that the first postpartum ovulation is likely to take place prior to the first bleeding, it is recommendable that an additional method of contraception is used in the period between childbirth and the first 21-pack of tablets. Oral contraception can be started immediately after a first-trimester abortion. No extra precautions are required in such a circumstance.

    Femodette should not be taken while you are pregnant. If there is any suspicion of pregnancy while on the pill, you should stop immediately and medical advice sought.

    Due to its hormonal ingredients, the pill can reduce the production of breast milk. Therefore, Femodette is not recommended for breastfeeding women. It is advisable that you resume use of this contraceptive no sooner than weaning or at least six months after birth. Other more suitable methods of contraception should be considered in this case.
