Can I update you on the saga of the meds?
I went to Bellevue today to pick up the meds last minute. The price? $5300.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And that is only for Follistim, Menopur and Vivelle.
I went outside and cried. After an hour of trying to figure out what to do, we decided to go in and get a 4 day supply of just follistim and menopur. I will order the rest from Schrafts in the morning for overnight delivery. They quoted me $3800 for EVERYTHING a few weeks ago when I got the Lupron and PIO from them, so half an order of follistim, menopur and vivelle should be much less.
Getting your own meds for IVF is such a hastle. It's more of a pain in the arse than the PIO shots will be, no doubt.
But the good news is, I do have some meds to start tomorrow!
(Thanks for everyone's empathy about my meds situation. It's nice to be able to vent.)
Happy New Years everyone!!! Hope you all are having a nice relaxing holiday. 2009 is the year of BABIES!!!
Well, I did the Menopur shot last night and found it more unpleasant than the Follistim. Does anyone else have trouble getting the needle cap off the injection needle? I feel like I'm falling into a chronic bad mood due to the anticipation of these injections. Hope I can snap out of it.
Joy ~ My doc has me doing Follistim in the AM and Menopur in the PM. Yes, am on the antagonist. Looks like I do the Follistim/Menopur up until the day before retrieval. Then post retrieval it's progesterone, estradiol, and medrol. How did your Menopur go? I'm putting off the Follistim this morning. It really bugs me that I'm going to have to do 2 Follistim shots because my cartridges are 300 and my dose is 225.
Bellybean ~ How did the IUI go?
Yogi ~ How as your retrieval?
