What is Femodene?
Femodene is a combined contraceptive pill containing ethinylestradiol and gestodene. These active ingredients are similar to the naturally produced estrogen and progesterone responsible for controlling the menstrual cycle.
Taking this combined pill for 21 days consecutively every 28 days will protect you from pregnancy with up to 99% effectiveness. A doctor may also prescribe this treatment to help reduce period pain and heavy menstrual bleeding.
How does Femodene work?
The active ingredients in Femodene prevent pregnancy in three ways. It prevents the egg from being released by the ovaries (ovulation). It thickens the natural mucus around the cervix, making it difficult for sperm to move to where an egg could be. It also thins the lining of the womb which prevents an egg from implanting on the wall if ovulation and fertilization occur.
Combined pills, such as Femodene pills, are up to 99% effective when taken correctly. This means for every 100 couples using Femodene for 1 year in trials, only 1 woman fell pregnant. If Femodene is not taken correctly (missed pills/ late pills) the effectiveness may fall to 91%. Pill reminders can assist with helping to remember your pills.
Feomodene is not effective at protecting against sexually transmitted infections. If the sexual health of a partner is unknown it is recommended to use barrier contraception.
To take Femodene, swallow whole one pill every day around the same time for 21 consecutive days.
After the 21 consecutive days of pills, take a 7-day break in pills. During this time you will experience a breakthrough bleed. This is similar to a regular period, but not a period. This will generally start 1-2 days after you stop active pills. Start the next pack of 21 pills after the 7-day break even if you are still bleeding.
If you forget to take a pill and it has been less than 12 hours since your usual time, take the pill as soon as you remember and take your next pill at your usual time. The effectiveness of the pill should not change if this is done.
If you forget a bill and it has been more than 12 hours since your regular time, take it as soon as you remember and take your next pill again at your usual time. Contraceptive coverage may be affected in this case and it is recommended that extra contraception such as condoms are used for 7 days of active pills to ensure you are fully protected from pregnancy.
For further in-depth information about missed pills, read the patient information leaflet.

Warnings and Precautions
Risk of blood clots and cancer
All combined pills can slightly increase the risk of developing blood clots and certain cancers. It is important this risk is understood and discussed with an appropriate health professional. 0.09-0.12% of women using Femodene combined hormonal contraceptives will develop a blood clot in a year compared to 0.02% of women not using a combined pill.
Similarly, the risk of breast and cervical cancer may increase with pill use slightly. For detailed information regarding the small increase in risk consult your doctor or read the patient information leaflet.
Due to these risks, the combined pill is not appropriate for all women. Women with chronic high blood pressure or a history of breast or cervical cancer may need to consider alternative options. Discuss this with a doctor.

- Are allergic to any listed ingredient in Femodene pills
- Have had a blood clot previously
- Have a blood disorder affecting clotting
- Have uncontrolled very high blood pressure
- Have experienced migraines with aura
- Have severe liver disease
- Have had a heart attack or stroke
- Have severe diabetes
Other Medicines and Femodene
Some medicines may interact with Femodene, reducing its effectiveness which may result in an unwanted pregnancy. Ensure you always inform your doctor or pharmacist that you are taking Femodene when being prescribed other treatments. If you temporarily require medicine that affects your contraceptive pill, you may need to use additional contraceptive methods such as condoms.
