Femcon Fe

When and How Do I Use It?

General considerations for when and how to use Femcon Fe include the following:
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • Femcon Fe tablets can be swallowed whole or chewed. If you chew them, make sure to follow the tablet with a full glass (eight ounces) of any beverage. This helps to wash the medication down, ensuring you get the full dose.
  • You can take Femcon Fe with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Each pack of Femcon Fe contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new one right away. You will probably start your period during the last week of the pack.
  • It is important that you take the medication every day and at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
  • Make sure you know exactly what to do if you miss any pills. In some circumstances, you may need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms, for seven days.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Femcon Fe will not work if you stop taking it.

Dosing Information for Femcon Fe
