Femodette
Start Consultation
Femodette is a combined oral contraceptive and is a 21-day pill – you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills. This contraceptive contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen.

It is not recommended to use for women who are breast feeding.
Tablets are taken orally by swallowing whole with water, once daily for 21 days, followed by a 7-day break.

When starting Femodette, the first tablet should be taken on the first day of your cycle (that is, the first day of your period). If you start Femodette on the first day of your period you are immediately protected against pregnancy.

If you are already on a different pill, then Femodette should be started on the day after you finish your last pack of your current pill. If you are taking a progestogen-only Pill (‘mini Pill’), start Femodette on the first day of bleeding, even if you have already taken the progestogen-only Pill for that day. You will have contraceptive cover straight away.

If you have recently had a baby, you should contact your doctor. If you have experienced miscarriage or abortion you should contact your doctor.
As a combined pill, Femodette is a very effective form of contraception when taken as directed.
Common side effects include depressive mood, headache, migraine, nausea, breast pain and/or tenderness and weight gain.

There is an increased risk of thromboembolism for all women who use combined hormonal contraceptives such as Femodette.
