Hoping2BMum - April 3

I have been reading this forum for a month or so and just wanted to say hi. This is a wonderful forum for discussion and support.
Thanks to all those of you who make leftover meds available to those of us without IF insurance.

DH and I are prepping for IVF#5 and I'm wondering if any generous soul has any leftover meds to donate or sell cheap? We would be in need of Lupron or Antagon, Follistim or Gonal F or Bravelle and either Repronex or Menopur. I think my insurance will cover PIO.

Thanks for considering this plea.

Kat

I sent you a private message also. We do have some menopur available. Check your private messages and get back with me. We can talk about what you need and such.

I have 1 box of lupron left which I can donate it expires 10/07. Hate to waste it! I'm pregnant with twins! let me know if you still need it. It is still in the fridge and has been stored properly.

Hi Jaimielee! Congrats on your twins! I think that is the IVF jackpot! I sent you a private message regarding your offer. Thanks so much!

Hi there

I just wante dto post out and wish you all the best. I am coming up on #5 as well, and it can be an exhausting journey.. Both financially and emotionally.

I wish I had meds left over, like I did before, but I gave away a lot of what I had... and now am gonna have to start piling up enough for a donor cycle.. as my back up plan.

I have been following the great prices that bravelle is being offered for on freegarage: between $15-18 per vial. and I would recommend that you grab up all that you need, now.... cause the current price points are lower than they have been over the past year. I got mine from there too and they usually cost $20/vial.. and I was lucky enough to find it for $17-18 once before.

Good luck on your journey. I am sure there are lots of pregnant ladies who still have a vial or two and are grateful enough for the blessing to share...

All I have that I can share at this point, is lovenox and delestrogen. If you need either, just let me know

Blessings

Thanks so much for the advice. It seems like a certain someone here is trying to gouge us, when she received DONATED meds from other generous people.

I am in dire need of Lovenox. I will send you a private message.

Best wishes.

HOPING2BEMUM:

just for the record...
I AM NOT SELLING DONATED MEDS.

I am offering meds that I PURCHASED. We had no coverage for any of our infertility treatments.

I am not trying to gouge anyone. I have receipts if you would like me to scan them and email them to you.

Negativity can have a lot to do with infertility and maybe that is your issue. You seem to derive so much pleasure from being negative and slamming me. I wish you the best of luck and hope that in the future, you will have your dream come true too.

Kari. I don't believe I mentioned you at all. But your defensiveness seems to indicate that perhaps you feel guilty for something?

The reason I can't get pregnant is because I have no tubes. Keep in mind that negativity and ranting isn't a good environment for you growing babies either.

It is interesting that you took donated meds, but can't find it in your heart to "pay it forward". That would bode well for your very early and tenuous pregnancy.

sounds like everyone is being a little negative and maybe a little mean....

not healty at all....

I personally don't see what is wrong with trying to recoup some of the costs associated with fertility treatments, especially if someone doesn't have any kind of drug plan or insurance.

Just a thought....

 

Hoping2BMum - April 27

Really? You don't think that it is wrong to beg for donated meds and then SELL the leftovers at prices that are twice what the going rates are?

You are right all this negativity is not useful. But it would be nice to see people repay the generosity they received. What comes around goes around.

When I purchased Bravelle in the past it was $70 per vial. Anything below retail is a bargain. According to the post, it looks like she is not seeling the donated meds, only the meds she bought. Perhaps you are making assumptions. I don't know.

I just don't think the negativity is useful to anyone. She may have her reasons and it's not for us to pass judgement on anyone.... and you are right, you reap what you sew.

OOOh..Ladies

We all need to remember that this is a place for support... kindness and generosity of spirit. Everyone's journey is different.. but we all are faced with the difficulties and stresses that the road includes,which certainly encompasses its both financial and emotional burdens.

To each its own... I know that I have to make choices every day, based upon my circumstances. We help one another when we can, and when we cannot.. we let our own individual conscious be our guides as to our actions.

When I am uncomfortable, it is often because I have done something to be uncomfortable about. And when I am at peace,... I am simply thankful for the gift.. and try to remember that women like many of you have helped to relieved some of my burdens.. so that I could have my moments of peace.

There is no price tag that can be put on it.

For me.. my first two cycles caused my tremendous financial burden.. and as a single woman, I could have not done it without the help of a very generous lady who donated nearly $1,000 of meds to me.. So, I'm thrilled to share what I can when I can.

If you need some lovenox, I do have some.. and "baby dreams" welcome.... there are much cheaper prices available thru "post market" avenues, that are less than 30% of retail. This is one of those places... sometimes, folks just don;t know.. what the norms are in these places until they research or are exposed to them. We all have free will.. and if prices are higher than we are comfortable paying, we can go elsewhere..

To each its own. I have nothing more to say.

Have a pleasant weekend ladies

I guess I don't really even understand why KariV read my post, when she obviously isn't in a position to donate meds. That is except for the person who donated them to her to begin with.

Karma baby karma

Hope you don't mind me interupting.

I am not in a financial position to donate meds either. In fact my DH & I are so far in debt the only way we will ever be able to clear it is to declare bankrupsy. Yet we are still offered loan upon loan. There is no way we will ever be able to pay back all the interest on our overdrafts/rent etc in our lifetimes. And even if we were allowed to do that, the cost of living would put us right back in debt anyway. People say 'money can't buy happiness'. But when it can get you your much longed for biological child, they are dead wrong. Like others here we are being charged a lot, for just a chance to have our own child. It's sad but it's true, we all know a lack of funds will mean less chance.

My DH & I have no children, but can't give up hope. Though we feel life is precious, we would both rather curl up & die if we will be subjected to a life w/o our own biological child. Sorry if that offends anyone.

Though I have donated in the past, both expired & unexpired, it was usually only when my protocol had changed. And the meds were what I had bought from other people & I always made it clear where I got them. I personally don't think I should make my money back, when it was my fault I overbought, trying to save money. Technically if I got them via a pharmacy I should send them back to be incinerated anyway. That seems wrong to me too, & I wouldn't do that. So I am just glad someone may get what it seems like DH & I never will. But I'm not saying I think it's wrong to ask for money for them. I don't know anyones situation & it's not up to me to judge. I just couldn't do it myself.

I have never accepted donated meds, though I was once offered some expired meds from someone. My philosophy is, & although it pains me to think so, there is always someone worse off than me. God help them.
