Femodene: Low dose oral contraceptives need to be taken punctually in most women, to reduce "withdrawal bleeding". Take the active pills within the hour of taking the previous pill the day before. If you have allowed more than seven days before taking the first active pill of the next package, obtain a serum HCG test to make certain of pregnancy.
