[quote=All_the_good_names]Holliewood, :welcome: to the board. I’m sorry you had IUI BFNs, but it’s good to step up your game now. IVF can be really tough emotionally, so DH is going to have to be prepared for a possible month of the worst PMS ever. I agree you really, really need to advocate for what you want, research, and ask questions. Otherwise, the Dr. will most likely do what is easiest for the clinic even if it’s not the best thing for you.
I wanted to impart something that you may already know, but DH and I just discovered this cycle (our 3rd IVF), especially since you say you want to use Follistim. Perhaps you already know, but those F vials have tons more medication in them than they say! For instance, our 300iu vials had 425, so that’s one way to save on stim meds. Also, someone just posted links for med saver programs for those without insurance. Check it out!
I wish you all the best. I hope Ahlering does the trick! Our beta is tomorrow, and if this round didn’t work, we are switching to SIRM either in NJ or NYC.[/quote]
Thank you [B]All the Good Names[/B]! I was on the IUI part of this forum, but have now switched over to another new beginning. :flower: Good Luck on your Beta tomorrow!!!
I know exactly what you are talking about with the Follistim meds, I usually buy the 300unit, and can get like 400 out of it. Is it the same for the 600 and the 900 vials? Are there just like 100 over in there? If not, might as well by the 300 vials, the place I researched has the same price no matter the quantity.
I looked into the UK ordering, but I feel like that woudln’t get here soon enough, you know! I use Ascend Specialty Pharmacy, and they have free shipping, next day delivery, cheap prices, super friendly and helpful, they give you free Sharp containers to dispose of your needles. But I looked into Alenxander’s Twin too, they seemed reasonable.
