Buy Femodene Contraceptive Pill Online in the UK
Femodene is a combined oral contraceptive pill (also known as ‘the pill’) that works to prevent pregnancy.
Femodene contains two types of female sex hormones which prevent pregnancy, oestrogen and progestogen. These females hormones work in three ways:
- They prevent an egg from being released from the ovaries.
- They make the mucus in your cervix thicker which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the womb.
- They prevent the lining of your womb from thickening, meaning that an egg cannot grow in it.
Femodene is a 21-day pill. One Femodene contraceptive pill is taken each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills.
The benefits of taking Femodene as a form of contraception include:
- Uninterrupted sex;
- It can regulate periods;
- Periods may be lighter and less painful;
- It can help with many premenstrual symptoms.
Femodene will not protect you against sexually transmitted infections; only condoms can do this.
- Femodene comes in strips of 21 pills, each tablet is marked with a day of the week.
- Start by taking a pill marked with the correct day of the week.
- Take your pill at the same time every day, for example every morning or every night before bed.
- Follow the direction of the arrows on the strip and take one Femodene contraceptive pill each day, until you have finished all 21 tablets.
- Swallow each pill whole and do not chew it.
- After you have taken all 21 pills in one strip, you must allow seven days to pass without taking any pills.
Within a few days of taking the 21st pill from one strip, you will experience a withdrawal bleed like a period. This bleed may not have finished when it is time to start your next strip of pills, however you should continue with your next strip.
You will have seven pill-free days each month with this course of medication, during which it is not necessary to take additional contraceptive medication - if you have completed the course as instructed.
You should start each month’s strip of pills on time, even if the bleeding is still occurring on the eighth day after finishing the previous month’s course. The scheduling of the Femodene contraceptive pill has been designed so that every month, the day of the week on which you begin a strip will always be the same. For further information on how to administer Femodene properly, please read the patient information leaflet enclosed in the medicine’s packaging.

Assessing these considerations is a must before opting to begin the course of medication or deciding whether you wish to continue the treatment once you start it.
