I went for the injection class yesterday and to my suprise it didn't seem too over the top or complicated.
I am NOT a fan of needles but it was easier than I thought it would be. I also did a practice shot on my tummy and it didn't hurt either. Going through each step and each medicine helped to take a lot of the anxiety away. Finch will be doing the intramuscular HCG shot for me but I can handle the rest.
I came across a great resource for those couples, like us who have 0% coverage from insurance - Mandel Pharmacy in NJ 1-877-252-0553!! Our nurse was able to find us some free meds that were left over in the office. She faxed the remaining meds we need to 2 pharmacies. The total cost for pharmacy #1 was $1600...the cost at Mandel is $1189.46. Yes, we are counting every penny of cost savings! lol. I also found out that Freedom pharmacy 1-866-297-9448 has the lowest rates anywhere for Gonal-F. Both offer free overnight shipping. What could be better?! Well, I guess I could say Insurance to cover the costs of our IVF and meds but that isn't going to happen anytime soon. We are ordering the Gonal-F from Freedom and the rest from Mandel. I already had the mock transfer back in January so we are all finished until 3/28 when we return for bloodwork/ultrasound. Everyone is filled with great information on here, I love it! Does anyone have any foods that you regularly ate to increase fertility?
