Officially, I am supposed to say you cannot use it after the expiration date. But your pharmacist trumps any opinion I have.
But what exactly happens at midnight on that date? All the molecules suddenly break down? No, it cannot work that way.
Another strange thing is that drugs we buy at the pharmacy (the ones they place in the little brown child-proof bottles for us) always get an expiration date 1 year after we buy them, regardless of the expiration date on their original bottle.
Some of these meds have expiration dates on the outside that are different from those on the inside. Menopur, for example, sometimes has one date on the box, and different dates on the bottles in the box.
This expiration date stuff is so screwy it's almost worthless.
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.
