Okay- So over the past week I have been searching like a mad woman for the perfect donor. I FINALLY found one I like after talking to a geneticist who had IVF using donor sperm who is on a forum I am on.
I got my medication list and quote from my doctor and I seriously in shock that the meds cost MORE than my IVF procedure. I figured with the discount my meds would be $1500 or less but they cost is over $3500 ! WOW ! There goes my favorite stroller and an over the top but on a budget nursery 🙂
The ladies on the forum suggested I call my OB GYN’s office and ask is they have samples of GonalF450, Menopur150, Lupron, HCG Trigger Shot, Estrace, and Cronone Gel 8% and to also inquire if any patients have donated unused meds for the use of other patients who are having IVF.
I am trying to stay calm but all of this is a bit overwhelming. It is hard enough that I am now at PLAN B but now these little surprises are starting to weigh on me. I guess that is what life is… the unexpected and we just have to make it work.
