Femodette contraceptive pills are used as a form of hormonal contraception. The active ingredients of this formula are the synthetic counterparts of female sex hormones.
In addition to ethinyl estradiol, which in the Femodette pills functions as the equivalent of oestrogen, gestodene has been used, which belongs to the third generation of synthetic progesterone. The third generation products selectively stimulate androgen receptors, thus reducing to a minimum the risk of the occurrence of tertiary sexual characteristics. In addition to the typical protection against unwanted pregnancy offered by birth control pills, Femodette helps to treat common ailments associated with hormonal imbalance, e.g. it reduces acne, regulates the period and makes it less unpleasant.
