Can anyone donate Follistim? IVF#1 worked then 8 week loss

Postby Olivia2501 » Fri May 21, 2010 1:55 pm

I appreciate anyone responding in advance. We just suffered a loss after our first IVF was successful. You could have knocked me over with a feather when we went for 8 week check up, only to be told there was no heartbeat. At 9 weeks it was the same result, so they forced a miscarriage by having me take misoprostol. These last 3 weeks have been horrible. We suffered the highest high and then the lowest low in the span of 11 weeks. I am still waiting on my HCG levels to return under 5 so my cycle can start again, they are slowly coming down so the agony continues.

We are planning our second IVF soon. We have been saving for IVF as we knew this would be our only chance to conceive. We have not been blessed with any children, due to my age, 38 and severe endometriosis, we are running out of time. I had a very high dosage of follistim the first try, all my meds were almost $5000. We are 100% self pay, my insurance covers nothing.

To add insult to injury, we just found out yesterday my husbands employer is closing June 1. So he will have no job. We are even more devastated now, I just dont even know what to do. Any help at all would be so appreciated it, I will pay shipping, anything.
Thank you so much!
