Femodene ED and Pregnancy

Combined Contraceptive Pill »

If you think that you may be pregnant, perform a pregnancy test to confirm this and if you are pregnant, you should not use Femodene ED. Stop using the pill straightaway if you find out you are pregnant whilst using the pill.

If you are using Femodene ED and want to try for a baby, you should finish the cycle that you are on and then stop taking the contraceptive pill. Although the pill does not affect your fertility, it may take a few months for your cycle to return to normal. It is also best to wait until you have had your first period because the doctor will work out your due date from your last period so it is easier if you have had one before this.

If you have had a baby and you plan to breast feed, most doctors will advise against using Femodene ED. Although it is a low dose pill, oestrogen can reduce the milk flow so you may not produce a sufficient amount to meet your baby’s needs. Also, small amounts of the hormone can be passed on to your baby and although there is no evidence of this causing harm, the research is not conclusive. You are advised to wait until your baby has been weaned off breast milk before you start using most contraceptive pills.

If you are not breast-feeding and want to start using the pill, you should start 21 days after the birth as long as you are fully mobile. If you start at this time, you will be protected from pregnancy straight away. You can start at any other time after the 21 days but you will not be protected from pregnancy for a week after starting so you will need additional contraception.
