Have any of you flown with fertility meds...specifically injectables? I plan to take the meds/syringes/etc. all in my carry-on so there is no chance of them being lost. As long as I put the med bottles in my zip-loc baggie and have my prescription I should be okay, right?

I don't know for sure, but if I were you, I would go online and find the FAA regulation that allows it, print it out, and bring it with you. The TSA agent may not necessarily just believe you when you show it to him/her, but as long as it has a reference # (para 265 or p 90 or whatever) then s/he will at least know where to find it in their official manual.

With us on earth for five short days, with us in our hearts forever.

Medication and needles are allowed on the plane. They may not be used to fertility meds, but they will be used to things like insulin. The official policy online says that ALL meds of ANY type and the supplies (including needles) will be allowed. But they want you to tell someone first. Also, they usually Xray the stuff and if you don't want them to you have to request a visual inspection.

Sounds like you should be ok! Happy travelling!

Erin, I already have the stuff printed out and in my suitcase Thanks, Katie...I think I will be okay, too. I read somewhere that it is easiest to have everything in one place...the meds, syringes, etc. so I think I will put everything in a see-thru cosmetic bag that I have. Hopefully it won't be a hassle at all

I haven't flown with injectables, but have flown with my epi pens and nebulizer with the meds. I put all the meds in a makeup case at the top of my bag and when I put my liquids bag in a tub the med bag in the same tub. I just told the TSA person it was my meds. The only "issue" they had was my neublizer and had to test it to make sure it wasn't a bomb.
