How much???

So I went to my new doctor for the first time today. I liked him a lot and he told me that he gets at least 1 new patient a week from my last AWFUL place. It made me feel great to know I was not imagining things. He said he has no idea why I am not pregnant as all of my work up looks good. He said my losses are unexplained. Hmm. Ok.

He also said he wants to get aggressive and get into shots. I am thinking yeah Ok sounds good. But he then explained they are about 1,000 dollars a month. Ouch. I am not broke but I do NOT have 1,000 a month to spare. Now I can do two months worth semi comfortably, but then what? Why oh why does the school district prescription plan not cover fertility meds??????? I already pay out about 2,000 a month in my current bills and my Husband pays out more than me. Did I mention I am a teacher? On a teacher's salary? How am I going to do this? How much more of this? I am happy I like my new Doc, but I have no clue what I am going to do about affording his AGGRESSIVE PLAN. UGH!

I am glad you like him and he wants to be more agressive. Does he plan to do any more testing before having you start stims? I am assuming he means IUI w/injectibles?
I know the money is a concern, but you can talk with your clinic about your concerns. They may be able to help you network with couples with extra meds. There always seems to be someone in the IF community willing to donate meds...GL!!!

I'm glad he wants to get more aggressive! I'll keep you in my prayers that the money concerns are not as tough as they might seem right now. As Emily said, maybe you can get someone to donate. Good luck!
