OK, so I posted earlier about CC.R.M. wanting me to take progesterone support for longer this luteal phase to extend my cycle, blah blah blah, for their scheduling purposes.
I usually take prom.etrium but they wanted me to switch to endo.metrin, three times per day. My nurse said that the endome.trin thrice daily was equivalent to the 200 mg prom.etrium once daily but that they saw higher progesterone levels on the thrice daily regimen.
So they called in the endo.metrin to Wal.greens. When I went to pick it up on the day I was to start it, here's what I hear: "Oh we don't carry that. No Wal.greens in this town does."
So I called my nurse and she was like "Oh just fill the prom.etrium." Wal.greens then ordered the endo.metrin, which came in today.
Cost for the pro.metrium? $30. Insurance covers it!
Cost for the endo.metrium? $350, for fourteen days worth. Insurance denied it because it's a 'fertility med.'
I guess I don't see the difference...two different brands/forms of progesterone, right? Geez.
The ridiculousness: we've spent nearly 75K at this point, so what's 350, right? I guess I need to do the endo.metrin because it's supposedly 'better' and sometimes I start to spot/bleed even when on the prom.etrium and wouldn't that just muck up their little schedule if AF showed up early (on time!) and I needed to transfer earlier?
I wonder if I should've ordered from Freedom? Maybe cheaper than Wal.greens. Damn I'm getting tired of putting stupid little extra periods on so many words!
Tomorrow night I need to see what kind of Vive.lle supply I have....I had sorta forgottten about all the med costs with the FET.
What's money anymore, right?
Tomorrow: first endometrial biopsy. Oh the fun!
Oh yeah--I got a blog award from Slice of Pie and I promise I will do it soon!
