Overview

NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you.

What is Femodatte and What is it Used For?

Femodatte is a combined oral contraceptive pill used by women to prevent pregnancy. The pill contains two men made hormones:75mcg gestodene and 20mcg ethinylestradiol ethinylestradiol works the same as estrogen hormone while gestodene works the same as progesterone hormone.

The combined contraceptive pill is a low pill dose hormone compared to other combined pills as it contains few estrogen hormones.

Femodatte is available as a 21-day pills packet. You are supposed to take 1 pill daily for 21 days followed by a 7 days break without taking a pill.

Besides Femodatte being used to prevent pregnancy, it is also used to help women manage painful periods. It makes heavy periods lighter too.

How Effective is Femodatte?

If you take Femodatte the right way, it will 99% protect you from getting pregnant. Severe Diarrhea and vomiting can put you at risk of getting pregnant.

If you realize that you are vomiting or having diarrhea, use another protective measure such as condoms to protect you from getting pregnant.

To avoid reducing the effectiveness of the low-dose contraceptive pill:

  1. Avoid missing pills 
  2. Avoid taking treatments that may reduce the effectiveness of Femodatte.

How Long Does It Take Femodatte to Work?

You should take Femodatte on the first day of your period. Femodatte works effectively when you take it on the first day of your period.

When you take the low-dose pill later you may not be protected from getting pregnant, therefore there will be a need to use a contraceptive barrier such as a condom for 7 days.

How does Femodatte work?

The low estrogen combined contraceptive pill functions in 3 ways to protect you from getting pregnant.

  • It stops ovulation: Your body is supposed to replace one egg every month. The two synthetic hormones prevent ovaries from releasing an egg.
  • Thicken the cervical mucus: By thickening the cervical mucus, the sperms swimming towards the uterus cannot penetrate through the cervix
  • Make the lining of the womb thin: When the lining of the womb is thin it's difficult for a fertilized egg to implant itself.

Femodatte cannot protect you from getting STI and HIV. Prioritize using a condom to protect yourself from contracting STIs and HIV.

FAQ

  • How effective is the pill?

    The combined pill (contains oestrogen and progesterone) is 99.9% effective when taken correctly. The progesterone only pill is 95% effective when taken correctly.

  • What are the benefits of oral contraception?

    Benefits include:

    • Easy and convenient contraceptive method.
    • Highly effective in preventing pregnancy.
    • Lighter periods and also less cramping, bloating, and irritability that are often associated with normal menstruation.
    • Does not interfere with sexual intercourse.
    • May provide some protection from pelvic inflammatory disease which, if left untreated, can lead to infertility.
    • Clear up hormonal acne.
  • What other contraceptive choices are there?

    There are many different types of contraception available other than the contraceptive pill. These include:

    • The implant
    • A progesterone only injection
    • Contraceptive patches
    • Inter-uterine Devices (IUD)
    • Vaginal rings
    • Condoms
    • Dams
    • Caps
  • If I am on the pill, does my partner need to use a condom?

    In terms of preventing pregnancy, a condom would not be required. However, condoms should be worn during sexual intercourse to protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms are the only way to prevent transmission of STDs.

  • Who should not use the contraceptive pill?

    You should not take the contraceptive pill if:

    • You have a history of blood clots
    • You have ever had breast cancer
    • You are pregnant
    • You have a history of heart problems
    • You may also potentially have to avoid oral contraception if you smoke, due to the risk of developing a blood clot.
  • Does the pill prevent STDs?

    No. Only condoms prevent STDs. You are still susceptible to STDs if you are having sex without a condom whilst taking the pill.

  • Do I need to take emergency contraception if I have sex when I have forgotten to take my pill?

    This will depend on:

    • the type of contraceptive pill you are taking
    • how many pills you have missed
    • what stage of your cycle you are currently in

    Emergency contraception may not always be necessary in this case.

  • Do I need to take the pill at the same time every day?

    For combined contraceptive pills it does not matter at what time you take the pill, although you should aim to do this at a regular time every day, and missing one pill will not necessarily mean you are not covered.

    For progesterone only (mini pills), they need to be taken at the same time each day or within 3 hours of that time (12 hours for Cerazette). Missing a tablet or not taking it at the right time may lead to bleeding or lack of contraceptive cover.

  • Is it safe to stay on the pill for long periods of time?

    Yes, for certain people. Medical evidence suggests that in women who don’t smoke, do not have high blood pressure and are not overweight, it is perfectly safe to continue taking the contraceptive pill up until they are 45.

  • Does Femodette make your breasts grow?

    Yes, Femodette can make your breasts grow for the first 3 months of taking the pill. However, it doesn't apply to all women. Remember to get advice from a  doctor if you are uncomfortable with the breast size changes.

  • Does Femodette increase your risk of blood clots?

    Femodette contraceptive pill is not suitable for people with risk factors such as diabetes, a family history of blood clots, smoking, obesity, and high blood pressure.

  • Can Femodette make you depressed?

    Research has not yet shown the association between Femodette and depression, however, some women have reported depression as one of its side effects. It is important to seek medical advice if you are having suicidal thoughts.

  • Can I drink while taking Femodette?

    Yes, alcohol doesn't reduce the effectiveness of Femodette

  • Can I buy Femodette online?

    You can buy Femodette online from Ashcroft Pharmacy a legalised pharmacy in Uk.

  • Will Femodette affect my weight?

    Fluid retention is one of the reasons that causes weight changes, not the pill.

  • What should I do if I miss a pill?

    Missing one pill cannot put you at risk of getting pregnant, however, missing more than 2 pills can compromise the effectiveness of the low-dose contraceptive. Also taking your packet of Femodatte late can put you at risk of getting pregnant.
