Left Over Med's what to do with them?

Post by Lifelove » Wed Nov 10, 2010 4:11 pm

I have left over Meds from my last few cycles, I am going to do my next 2 cycles (hopefully) as FET. Does anyone have a recommendation as to what to do with the meds?

Thanks so much.
You are not supposed to sell them, although that happens.

You can return them to your clinic. They may give them (not sell them) to a patient who has difficulty affording meds.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

Unfortunately it is ilegal to sell or donate meds to a clinic but it happens all the time. Techinically no one is supposed to use a prescription that is not in their own name. With that said, be vague in a post and ask for someone to PM you...

Girl in states that pay for IVF are very lucky. In NC its not a mandate state so and so one has to cough up the full cost. I envy you on that one. And thanks for wanting to help this in need: passing on the good karma.

I do feel lucky in that sense. Although not so lucky to be on my 6th IVF cycle soon. I do still have a pretty large co-payment with the meds but at least the procedure for the most part is covered.

You know if there was a reason for everything it wouldbe good. But for some of us one wonders where things went wrong even when we try to make them right. Lets hope your time is coming soon and dont let the number of times you try scare you away. its a number game and all it takes is one good egg and sperm. thats what my doc tells me as if its real easy considering the cost.So keep up the good spirit and go to the next race like its your first hoping to finish with a gold medal. Dont let failure way you down.its all for a good cause.
