Who can Use Femodette?

Combined Contraceptive Pill »

Sometimes, the contraceptive pill can cause adverse effects in women with underlying medical conditions and it can make these illnesses worse. Therefore, for some women, the pill is unsuitable as it poses too high a risk to their health.

The pill can cause a slight increase in the risk of some cancers, so if you have or have had cervical, womb or breast cancer, you will not be suitable for the pill. Also, the pill can cause certain blood circulatory problems so if you have a history of blood clots, have experienced heavy vaginal bleeding that is unexplained, have sickle cell anaemia, diabetes that affects your blood vessels, or have blood fat metabolism disorders, the pill is not the right contraception for you. Femodette can also affect your liver so people with severe liver disease or jaundice should not use the pill. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients or experience rashes from the pill, you should not use Femodette.

In some cases, it is ok to use the pill as long as you go for regular checkups and tests to make sure that the pill is not having any adverse effects on your health. You will need to have physical examinations and smear tests if you are given the pill and have another medical condition. This is to make sure that your health is not at risk. If the pill aggravates your illness, you may need to use a different form of contraception.

You can use Femodette with caution if you have migraines, diabetes, varicose veins, epilepsy, depression, fibroids, systemic lupus erthematosus, chloasma, multiple sclerosis, asthma, poryphryia, tetany, Sydenham’s chorea, liver or kidney problems.  If you have a disease that is known to become worse if you are pregnant, you may not be able to use Femodette. Also, if you are severely overweight and want to use the pill, you will have to have regular checkups because weight can increase the risk of some illnesses that are associated with the pill.
