Five Thousand

That was the price of my meds this time around. It's like some Mastercard commercial.

Pre-cycle tests: $2,500
Infertility meds: $5,000
IVF: $11,000
Having a little mini-me: Priceless

I was telling Doc that instead of selling vico.din on the street, people should start selling folli.stim. Ounce for ounce, I think foll.istim is way more expensive than any narcotic. Freakin' liquid gold and that's all I've got to say about that.

hey babe - were all of your precycle tests not covered by insurance or something? i've yet to see a bill for any of my tests, and i hope i don't (*knock on wood*).

the mini-me = priceless is soooooooooooooooo true though!

Good luck with this cycle!!

As if TTC is not stressful enough, it has to be outrageously expensive too??!!! That stinks, but it will be worth every penny!

Crazy expensive! I think I should be in the pharmaceutical business. That's where the money's at!

OMG our IVF cost 11k too but the meds were only $300! I can't believe they are charging so much for the meds! But like you said, the end result is priceless. That's the way we look at it.

No Sh*t, that is true. There would be a decent market, unfortunately. Where are you getting your meds? A regular pharmacy? Check out Freedom Fertility Pharmacy. The meds I have been taking were significantly less through them, then the place my RE first sent the rx to.
