Femodette Review with images

AdvantagesNo Weight Gain, No head aches, LOW DOSE pill, LESS side effects

DisadvantagesBreast slightly tender and achy, a few breakouts, spotting has occured

"...across a pill called Femodette. Femodette is a lot different from Microgynon the main distinction is the quantity in estrogens and progesterone. Femodette is classed as a LOW dose pill, hence the name it means the levels of hormones are LOW. It contains 20mcg of Estrogens (Ethinylestradiol) and 75mcg of Progesterone (Gestodene). If you compare this with Microgynon which has 30mcg of Eastrogens and 175 of Progesterone, which is a lot! And was the cause ..." Read review

Femodette Review

AdvantagesEffective contraception, Regular periods, Drastic decrease in discomfort during periods.

DisadvantagesSlight breast achyness, slightly more emotional/sensitive

"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 oestrogen and progesterone. The hormones in the pill work by over-riding the normal menstrual cycle. "Ethinylestradiol prevents the ripening and release of an ..." Read review

Spots are a great contraceptive

Advantages99% effective contraception

Disadvantagesmood 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. Most women are prescribed some form of the combined pill but don't realise that the progesterone:oestrogen ratio varies greatly between brands. About ..." Read review

No Babies!

AdvantagesEasy to take, Easy to Understand instructions

DisadvantagesA few spots

"...I tried Femodette... I've been on Femodette for over a year now, and I can honestly say that I've never felt better (compared to how I've felt taking other contraceptive pills). So far, I've had no severe side effects and no babies and I feel good in my self. Femodette is a combined pill, which means it contains both oestrogen and progesterone. Femodette contains both these hormones in roughly similar ratios. It is taken everyday, for 28 days, ..." Read review

Quick review of Femodette Contraceptive Pill

"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

My experience with Femodette

AdvantagesLighter, less painful periods, no pregnancy, bigger boobs

DisadvantagesTaking back-to-back can lead to spotting, breast tenderness

"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 this pill, I noticed my periods were much lighter than they would've been had I not been on the pill, and the pains, which were normally agonising ..." Read review

Femodette was good for me!

AdvantagesStopped my mood swings / light periods / regular periods

DisadvantagesStopped for 3 months and after starting again, regular spotting

"...the pill. Since being on Femodette I have had stable moods, and have had light, regular-to-the-hour periods. I have now been taking it for over 4 years and am happy with my choice. The only disadvantage I've had is I stopped taking it for 3 months and then started taking it again and had irregular spotting for the first 4/6 weeks or so. Was a bit worried, but have since found out this is normal with all pills, and this has now stopped completely. I'd ..." Read review
