Excellent

Shorter, lighter, painless, regular periods

can increase your risks of cancer

While Femodene is a contraceptive, that's not actually what my use of it is. I was put on Femodene to regulate my periods and so this review mostly comes from that perspective. I started my periods at 11 (it was actually the same day I started secondary school - oh that was fun!). They were never...

“Everyone is different.”

Easy contraception.

Doesn't suit everyone.

When I first tried the contraceptive pill I thought I would never find one which suited me, I was prescribed Microgynon which made me seriously emotional, Loestrin 20 which caused me to bleed for 3 months straight, Mercilon which turned me into an emotional monster and finally Femodene which I am...

“Femodene”

published 13/10/2005

Pain free period, No abnormal bleeding

none

After battling with headaches, rashes, swellings, constant bleeding and eventually a miscarriage whilst taking Microgynon 30 i changed to Femodene, What a godsend!! I started taking Femodene after a normal period (which was unheard of since using microgynon.) It comes in a box of 3x 21 days...

I'm in my very late 20's and have been taking one pill or another since I was 14, initially to treat my acne and now as a contraceptive. I've been on Dianette, Cilest, Microgynon 30 to name but a few and Femodene is by far the absolute very best I've ever had. I managed to lose weight (I was dieting admittedly but it didn't interfere), I haven't been sick (like on Cilest), I dont get headaches, or any other side effects, and my period is on time, every month without fail. The only small problem I have is that all my friends are still on MicroG 30 and if I stay over theirs and forget mine, I can't pinch a packet!

I have tried a few different brands of contraceptive pills and so far Femodene has worked the best for me. I firstly tried Marvelon which I found made me feel quite ill, then I was on Microgynon for ages but then I found I kept on bleeding when I wasn't supposed to. This was inconveniant and...

“Disappointed in Femodene”

Contraception has been like a nightmare to me. I am 26 years old and feel like I am 70. I started off with Microgynon, which was a complete disaster, then to a Copper IUD, which got me so ill I had to leave my job. I then had the IUD removed. The while when I was off contraception was the...

“Femodene and headaches”

published 20/09/2003

Shorter more regular and less painful periods

headaches and the increased risk of blood clots

I have recently changed to Femodene from Microgynon 30 and have found that I have experienced prolonged and nauseous headaches during the 7 day 'withdrawal' period. These headaches are, according to the contra-indications outlined by the manufacturers, a common side effect to this contraceptive...

Satisfactory

published 12/09/2007

I was switched to Femodene after 8 years on DIanette which i was taking for bad acne. What can I say. This pill turned me into a psycho and an emotional wreck. Crying for no reason, snapping at people, feeling tired and listless, no desire to make the most of myself. I didnt gain any weight and it did help with my periods but I must say it has made my skin worse which is the reason i was given it in the first place. I have now been placed on Cilest but I have to say reading the reviews for that doesnt fill me with much hope either. Its times like this i wish i was a man!
