This combination hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: a progestin and an estrogen. It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body.

Product Description


Femilon

This combination of hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy.

It contains 2 hormones: a progestin and an estrogen.

It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle.

It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body.

Besides preventing pregnancy, birth control pills may make your periods more regular, decrease blood loss and painful periods, decrease your risk of ovarian cysts, and also treat acne.

How to use Desogestrel-Ethinyl Estradiol?

  • Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once daily.
  • Pick a time of day that is easy for you to remember, and take your pill at the same time each day. Do not skip any doses.
  • Pregnancy is more likely if you miss pills, start a new pack late, or take your pill at a different time of the day than usual.
  • Vomiting or diarrhea can prevent your birth control pills from working well.
  • If you have vomiting or diarrhea, you may need to use a back-up birth control method (such as condoms, spermicide).
  • Your pill pack contains 21 pills with active medication. It may also contain 7 reminder pills with no medication. Take one active pill (with hormones) once daily for 21 days in a row. If you are using a product with 28 tablets, take an inactive pill once daily for 7 days in a row after you have taken the last active pill unless otherwise directed by your doctor. If you are using a product with 21 tablets, do not take any tablets for 7 days unless otherwise directed by your doctor. You should have your period during the fourth week of the cycle. After you have taken the last inactive tablet in the pack or gone 7 days without taking an active tablet, start a new pack the next day whether or not you have your period.
