Time to order more meds!

IVFmeds Order

Jeez, is it already time to order my meds for my August IUI??? Well, just to be on the safe side, to make sure they arrive on time (since they’re coming from Europe) it’s already that time again!! Just ordered 16 units of hMG (generic of Repronex) for IUI#5, hopefully MY LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Continue reading

How do you even open these?!???!

My injectable meds for my upcoming IUI arrived today, which was exciting BUT the package didn’t contain any needles or syringes (which I told them I DID need) and it’s in these weird looking vials that I don’t even know how to open. I phoned my RE’s office and left a voicemail (since it was after hours) and told them my concerns. Since they regularly use this pharmacy I’m certain this isn’t the first time this has happened and I’m sure they’ll set me straight. I’m not stressed, it’ll still be a week to two weeks before I even need to use the medication…..was just a bit weirded out.



Looks like my meds made it to the US! Hopefully not too much longer until they make their way to my house! 🙂 🙂 I’m feeling really hopeful about this cycle. I guess I’m just excited to be trying something new (even though it involves shooting myself up with hormones for 5-10 days). Even if it doesn’t work this cycle, I know we’re one step closer to being pregnant….and that really excites me.


Moving right along

This afternoon I had an appointment with my RE to check on my cyst and talk about the protocol for our upcoming cycle. R was supposed to come with me. We talked about it last week, I put it on his calendar, but sure enough when I was talking with him about it last night he said he was going to be stuck in another town with clients and he wouldn’t be able to make it. It ended up not being that big of a deal at all that he wasn’t there. First I had an ultrasound, and I was cyst free, so that’s awesome! Next I went to my RE’s office where we talked. He had a student doctor with him today so he printed off my history so they could read over it. It was a whopping 5 pages and he said, “it’s about time to get you pregnant before we have to go on to a sixth sheet!” I couldn’t agree more! Continue reading

Injectable meds have been ordered!

repronexA 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.

Time for a more aggressive approach

From the beginning of our infertility journey I always knew I would do WHATEVER it took to have a child, R has always been a little more reserved about it. In July of 2013, when we were given our diagnosis of male infertility, he first suggested that it “wasn’t meant to be” and didn’t want to spend any time or money pursuing other avenues. After giving him some time he came around to the idea of IUI’s. But once we started IUI’s he said he was completely against adding injectables or moving onto the BIG TICKET ITEM IVF. Well, he’s starting to come around to these things too. Continue reading
