My husband and I have just finished a succes round of IVF/ICSI. Our doctor prescribed 4 of these pens for me and we only used 2. The other two have been sitting in our refrigerator. With the cost of these stimulation drugs I was wodering if anyone out there in the community is shopping around for this drug? I nearly choked when I was told how much one pen was going to cost me! My insurance didn't cover this particular drug and each pen cost us around $800. Needless to say, I would hate to see these pens go to waste if someone out there could use them. I would be happy to get $500 each for them. They have an experation date of December 2008 which is great for anyone undergoing a cycle of IVF or Insemenation within the next 7 months. Good luck to all of you trying to conceive, hang in there and don't give up hope.

I don't know if you've unloaded your pens yet. Fortunately, my insurance covers them and I only have to pay $50 each. But one thing you might want to consider is selling or giving them to your local Reproductive Endocrinoligist or fertility clinic. We go to a place called Reproductive Sciences Institute here in Pennsylvania. I was prescribed just the one pen and the nurse explained that if I need to up the dose, there is no need for me to order another a pen, they can just donate some doses to me. Good Luck.
