MRCGP DFSRH DPD DRCOGLast review 16 June 2022
The sex hormones in the female body are responsible for causing an egg to be released from the ovaries (ovulation) and for preparing the womb lining for a potential pregnancy. The synthetic hormones released from Femodene trick the body into believing that ovulation has already occurred. This prevents any eggs from being released for a possible fertilisation by a male sperm. It also alters the consistency of cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to reach the womb and changes the texture of the womb lining to make it unsuitable for an egg to develop there.
Take one tablet every day (starting on the first day of menstruation) for 21 days and then take a seven day break from pill-taking. During this break you will experience a withdrawal bleed similar to your normal period. Start the next pack after the seven pill-free days are up.
You cannot take this if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, over 35 and smoke heavily, or if you are affected by any of the following conditions:
During the online consultation, always mention any medications you are taking, prescription or otherwise, so the doctor can be sure this is safe for you to use.
Femodene is suitable for the majority of women over 18. As with all oral contraceptive pills, some women who take it may experience undesirable effects. These include breast enlargement/tenderness, headaches, weight changes and nausea. If one or more side effects persist, contact your doctor or healthcare provider who may recommend a more suitable contraceptive pill.
121doc allows you to obtain Femodene within 24 hours of placing an order online. Rather than seeing a doctor face to face you will instead fill out an online medical questionnaire. After reviewing your health information a doctor will decide whether you are safe to go on this contraceptive.
