Femodene ED is a combined contraceptive measure, aka ‘the pill’. They are taken to reduce the risk of pregnancy following.
Femodene ED is a combined contraceptive pill which you take to prevent getting pregnant. It contains a progestogen hormone called gestodene and an oestrogen hormone called ethinylestradiol, which work together to prevent an egg being released from your ovaries. Femodene ED also makes the mucus in your cervix thicker, making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg and prevents the lining of the womb from thickening enough to let an egg grow.
Femodene ED is taken every day without a break. This means you take an ‘active’ pill each day for 21 days, followed by an ‘inactive’ pill each day for 7 days.
