What do you all do if you have left over meds? I have menopur, gonal f and cetrotide (About $1,000.00) in meds never opened. We paid cash for everything so that is quite a bit of money not being used. Is there some where to donate unused meds to someone who needs them?

If you talk to your REs office, they will likely have a donation program for couples paying out of pocket for treatment/meds I know ours does!

Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!
17/05/14 - Baseline looks good, start Gonal-F 225iu and Luveris 75iu
28/05/14 - 18 eggs retrieved, 14 mature
29/05/14 - 13 fertilized!!! All are looking great still on day 3, so we're going to blast!
02/06/14 - Transferred one 1BC blast, with 3 other blasts and 3 morulas to watch and freeze
03/06/14 - All embryos have arrested. None to freeze
09/06/14 - Faint BFP at home at 7dp5dt!!!!!
10/06/14 - Beta?

where are you? I need some!...... you could try to sell it. Their are websites to sell fertility meds. Not sure how legal it is, but I know a lot of people have done it to recoup part of their $ spent. I do agree w muffin, that your clinic will probably take them if you want to donate them.

Hoping this means you are preggers!

Talk to your RE's office and see what they offer.

and just a reminder, selling meds on this board is against the rules, even via PM. It's just to protect everyone's safety

Thanks everyone - wasn't interested in selling them - sounds kind of illegal - lol..........just wanted to be able to give them to someone so that someone could benefit from them. But after reading stillwaitings comment maybe I should hold onto them for a bit since I'm not actually preggers yet - lol - not sure what I was thinking. I was just thinking that since I have gone through the retrieval process and had 9 frozen embryos that I wouldn't need those meds again - but actually if the transfer doesn't work out 9 times I WILL need those meds again - oopsie
