Femodene contains progestogen and oestrogen, which are two types of female sex hormones. These hormones protect against pregnancy in three ways: by blocking the release of eggs from your ovaries, by thickening the fluid in your cervix (which makes it harder for sperm into the womb), and by stopping the lining in your womb from thickening enough to allow an egg to grow inside it.
A strip contains 21 Femodene tablets. Each day, take one tablet at the same time. After you finish a strip, the pill will be stopped for seven days. You will experience normal bleeding during this period. After seven days, you can begin the next phase of your treatment.
You should remember to take your dose and can take the missed dose unless it is too late or if you are near the time of your next dose. You should be protected against pregnancy even if you've missed one day. You should use additional contraception for seven days if you have missed more than one day.
Your pill may be less effective if you miss a dose or start a strip too late. It doesn't matter if you forget to take one pill. It may be possible that you aren't protected from pregnancy if you miss more than one pill or start a new pack more than a day late. However, you can use additional contraception for seven days in such cases (such as condoms).
Your body might not receive the proper amount of hormones if you are sick or suffer from severe diarrhoea. You can take another Femodene pill if you feel sick within two hours.
You can delay your period by finishing the strip of pills you are taking, and starting the next strip the next day without the usual 7-day break and then continue as normal.
