Hi everyone! I haven't posted yet cause I'm been scared to jinx this pregnany. I went in today for my beta test and stopped by and said hi to my dr. He said that I should go on progesterone. I went to pick up the script and it's $200. I can't afford that. I dont know if I should go and beg his parents or what. What would you do?
First did they do a progesterone test? If not how does he know you need it? I had to be on progesterone with both DS's my levels were 12 and 14 but I didn't need it this time because my level was 30.
Also do you think your Insurance would cover shots? If so then ask him if weekly shots would be ok since the Out of pocket price is so high.
I remember the cost of progesterone all to well and it can add up really fast. So call your in the morning before asking your In-laws for help.
As for the cost, that seems crazy! I used progesterone suppositories that my insurance did not cover and I think I paid around $30 or $40 for a 10 day supply. That seemed like kinda a lot to me, but well worth it!
If your levels are really low, I would say progesterone is worth the investment, but I would then check around on prices. Good luck figuring it all out!
My doctor ordered progesterone injections 2x a week. With only one compounding pharmacy in my entire city, they only cost me $34 for a 3 week supply; and the pharmacy did not submit to insurance, so that was the total price.
Good luck! I hope you can get something figured out, hun!
