I'll probably do a couple more cycles with Clomid and IUI before moving on to something else. My RE mentioned something about injectables during our consultation, just that there were other things that we could try down the road, if what we're doing now doesn't work. I'm just curious how much a cycle with injectables would cost because our insurance doesn't cover anything. TIA!

The meds for my cycles weren't too bad. Only a couple hundred. What adds up are the doctors' visits and ultrasound monitoring and blood work. That depends on the office...

I would love to hear the responses to this question too! Just incase I ended up headed down that road. (Let's hope the Clomid or Letrozole work!) I would like to prepare myself so that I don't have a stroke when I find out how much they are! LOL!

I'm sure it varies with the different meds and pharmacies...hopefully *Melissa* will chime in, because she found that getting her meds overseas was a lot cheaper.

There are also a lot of financial assistance plans, etc. that can help. Check here http://www.fertilitylifelines.com/paying/index.jsp for info.

Sorry I don't really have an answer to the question, but hopefully someone else will jump in!

My RE told me that he would write a perscription out for me and then teach me how to order my meds over seas through IVFmeds.com. He started me on Repronex, a combination of LH and FSH for multiple follicular development. It is only about 14 dollars for 75 iu (one tablet/ one vial) the doctor had me order 20 vials because they weren't sure how much I would need, given that this is my first cycle. It cost me around 200 dollars. not too bad!
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!!!

That isn't as bad as I thought. How long did it take from the time you ordered the meds until you actually received them?

Each vial cost $250 without insurance for me. I have insurance so it was I think $40 a vial. Ultrasounds and bloodwork are what kill you though!

Some RE's will work with you though...since our insurance doesn't cover IUI or anything used with IUI, our RE is doing the office visits for free and the ultrasounds for 50% of his normal fee. You might ask your RE if they can do something similar.

How many vials do you need per cycle?

That's a good idea. What did you say to your RE to get him/her to cut their fee, etc.
