Going off the pill
Hi there!

I have stopped taking my Femodene (since yesterday) I dont want to get pregnant I just want to give my body a brake and see how my emotional state is when Im not on it. I have been on the pill for almost 10 years (since 16). Can anybody tell me how long before all the hormones are out of my system and did anyone have side effects?

Have a nice day!

The hormones are out of your system with a few days. You may have side effects such as sore breasts and periods pains. Remember to use alternative contraception.
