Cost Effective? 

on February 4, 2016

I’ve lost track of what cd I am because mommy brain can do that to you. 

I did however have to refill my meds today. The diary 6 days of Menopur were given to me by the clinic. The 10 I picked up today cost almost $500. Plus the $400 for the Gonal-f and I’m at $900 this pickup. Plus the $400 I spent for the earlier meds and were $1,300 deep this round not including the possible progesterone supplements he may put me on. So the $1,400 payment to the credit card I made this month did noting but bring us back to zero. 

So the newest question becomes do we keep shelling out $1,400 a month and hope it works or save up for a little and try IVF one more time? Another round would be about $9,000 (probably a little less because the new clinic is slightly cheaper) or about 6 iui rounds. 

I’m not usual the pessimist in our relationship, but my cd6 scan was pretty weak and I’m already thinking this is a bust.

  1. That’s a tough one! I definitely see your dilemma. I hope a clear answer makes itself known to you soon.
