A representative from IVFMeds.com called me today to confirm my prescription, and for payment of course. He had the most adorable British accent (they’re located in Europe). Looks like I’ll be taking the generic of Repronex/Menopur, which is a hMG (Human Menopausal Gonadropin). I ordered 10 vials of the 75 IU, they were $25/each…..for a total of $299 including tax and shipping, and they’ll arrive by next Monday. The $299 price tag is without insurance coverage, unfortunately our insurance doesn’t cover injectables, but this would have cost $1,200+ if we bought the same medications in the US….so we’re very lucky our RE lets us order our medication from IVFMeds.com. I’ll find out my exact protocol when I meet with my RE next week (4/8), they asked that I bring in the medication with me. R is going to try and be at that appointment too. Since this will be our first injectables cycle they have to go over everything in detail and will make us sign a release form stating that we understand the risks of multiples.
Now don’t get me wrong, I can think of a MILLION other things I’d rather spend $299 on, and I’m not thrilled at the thought of giving myself 10 shots in the next cycle (in addition to the HCG trigger shot), but I’m really excited!! 🙂
