Description

Femodette es un tratamiento sólo con receta. Es una píldora anticonceptiva oral combinada conocida como "la píldora". Toma comprimidos de Femodette para prevenir el embarazo.

Fermodette contiene dos tipos de hormonas sexuales femeninas, estrógeno y progestágeno. Estas hormonas previenen el embarazo al impedir que los ovarios liberen un óvulo; espesar el líquido en el cuello uterino y evitar que el revestimiento del útero se espese lo suficiente como para que crezca un óvulo en él.

Femodette es una píldora de 21 días que se toma todos los días durante 21 días, seguidos de 7 días en los que no se toman píldoras. Es uno de los métodos anticonceptivos más confiables, si se usa correctamente. Puede hacer que los períodos sean más ligeros, regulares y menos dolorosos y puede ayudar con los síntomas premenstruales. No la protegerá de las infecciones de transmisión sexual y debe tomarse según las indicaciones para prevenir el embarazo.

Directions

Following the prescribed dosage and directions is crucial to ensure the effectiveness of Femodette tablets. It is generally recommended to take one tablet orally at the same time every day, ideally with a glass of water. It's advisable to begin your first pack of Femodette tablets on the first day of your menstrual cycle. For continuous protection, you should complete the entire pack, including the placebo tablets, before starting a new pack.
If you miss a tablet or take it more than 12 hours later than usual, additional contraceptive measures may be required. Consult your healthcare provider for guidance on how to proceed. Remember that the success of Femodette as a contraceptive relies on consistent and correct usage.

Ingredients

Femodette tablets contain two active ingredients: ethinylestradiol and gestodene. Ethinylestradiol is a synthetic form of estrogen, while gestodene is a synthetic progestogen. The harmonious interaction between these hormones is responsible for the contraceptive effect of Femodette.
Each active tablet of Femodette contains a specific dosage of ethinylestradiol and gestodene. The precise balance of these hormones is crucial for the pill's efficacy in preventing pregnancy.

As with any medication, Femodette may cause side effects in some individuals. Common side effects include:
- Nausea

Most of these side effects are mild and tend to subside as your body adjusts to the medication. However, if any of these symptoms persist or worsen, it's important to consult your healthcare provider.
