Ok, let me start off by telling you that I am an awkward Pill user. Up to date, I have tried 3 different pill brands, but always manage to find something wrong with them! Microgynon gave me headaches, Mercilon made me think I was pregnant, Loestrin affected my sex drive (in a bad way), so I'm...

The last time I tried any birth control related tablets was 7 years ago, I went To my G.P to ask for something that would help with my periods (as they were very heavy). She was awfully quick to recommend I go on the pill (aka) Birth control in other countries. She prescribed me what all the...

Femodette is both the first oral contraceptive and last oral contraceptive I have tried, so I cant really offer a comparison, but I can tell you about my experiences with femodette specifically. FEMODETTE Femodette is a combined pill, which basically means that it contains a combination of...

99% effective contraception

mood swings, acne

Femodette was the first version of the contraceptive pill I ever tried, and it's often given to first timers like myself because it contains roughly equal amounts of oestrogen and progesterone. There are two types of Pill, the progesterone-only pill and the combined pill, which is more effective...

“No Babies!”

Easy to take, Easy to Understand instructions

A few spots

I've been on more than 10 contaceptive pills since I was 15, mainly because the side effects of each pill effected me badly, and unfortunately two types of pill failed to offer me protection what-so-ever. So I tried Femodette... I've been on Femodette for over a year now, and I can honestly say...

Hey everyone! I'm more looking for some feedback rather than giving at the moment. Im on day 11 of Femodette and i've broken out in really bad spots all over my back and chest, but not my face, how odd?! Has anyone else experienced this? I know it takes longer than 11 days for the pill to clear any spots, but i'm certain im getting more every day!! Other than that i'm feeling ok on this, maybe a little down and breast tenderness, but nothing major. Any other pill ive had (mercilon, yasmin, microgynon) has made my skin amazing, i've just had to stop cos of headaches. Is femodette different? I'd really appreciate any advice x

I was given Femodette after deciding the first pill I was put on, Microgynon 30, wasn't working. After being on Microgynon 30 and having a non-stop period for all the time I was taking 1 a day, it was a pleasant surprise when Femodette stopped the periods more or less straight away. Whilst taking...

Femodette was the 5th or 6th contraceptive pill I tried and by far my best- on previous pills I had suffered badly from depressive mood swings, acne, spotting, weight gain etc. On Femodette I haven't had any moodswings abnormal enough to notice, maybe a tiny bit of weight gain but nothing much, boobs got a bit bigger, a few spots for the first couple of months but since then no problems. I have now been on it for 7 months.
