Femodene ED


Femodene ED is a combined oral contraceptive pill (‘the Pill’). You take it to stop you getting pregnant.

Information Leaflet
SKU: 0483081 Categories: ,


This contraceptive contains two types of female sex hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. These hormones stop you getting pregnant by working in three ways:

  • by preventing an egg being released from your ovaries;
  • by making the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker, which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb; and
  • by preventing the lining of your womb thickening enough for an egg to grow in it.

Femodene ED is taken every day without a break. You take an ‘active pill’ each day for 21 days, followed by an ‘inactive pill’ each day for 7 days.

Uses / Instructions

Take Femodene ED every day for 28 days

See patient information leaflet for further details.


You will need regular check-ups with your doctor or family planning nurse, usually when you need another prescription of the Pill.

▪ You should go for regular cervical smear tests.
▪ Check your breasts and nipples every month for changes – tell your doctor if
you can see or feel anything odd, such as lumps or dimpling of the skin.
▪ If you need a blood test tell your doctor that you are taking the Pill, because the Pill can affect the results of some tests.
▪ If you’re going to have an operation, make sure your doctor knows about it. You may need to stop taking the Pill at least 4 weeks before the operation. This is to reduce the risk of a blood clot . Your doctor will tell you when you can start taking the Pill again.
