Dali my husband and I haven't started on IVF because the cost is unbearable. I could use the meds, how can I get in touch with you directly?

We just started our own infertility experience a couple of months ago. Had surgery in April to remove a blocked fallopian tube and began the IVF medications today. My husband is the only one working at this time because I'm focusing all of my energy on getting pregnant. I started off with Bravelle and Menopur and will be going for blood work on Monday, 6/30. My husband and I are very stressed from the high cost of the medications which our insurance refused to cover. Any donations of Bravelle, Menopur or Ganirelix will be greatly appreciated.

I'll be 37 in a month, and on the same doses (Follistim 300IU mixed with 2 vials of Menopur) those sting a bit- both price and pain. I screwed up the first 2 days by only doing 1 menapur vial. I did my bloodwork and the nurse called to tell me that the doctor wants me to continue on this same dose for the next 2 days, I did an ultrasound and was told that my follicle count is not high enough for IVF, but is recommending IUI again at a 25% rate. My my AMH was good but my FSH were way better 8 months ago on no meds. I have 6 follicles, and only 3 are the right size.
So we will try the IUI next week, but then I'll have a ton of used meds to unload. is there a place to donate or sell these?
The doctors office says they cannot help, and the pharmacy wont take them back.
I have 2 600iu of folistum and 2 unopened boxes of menapur.

Check with your doctor's office to see if they know of a patient that may be willing to use your unopened/unused medicine. Medical offices cannot accept medicines from patients but maybe able to to direct you to someone who can use it. It illegal to sell medications or dispense without a license. I see places on the net where people are selling left over med who are not authorized to sell pharmaceuticals without license. I'm quite amazed. I hope this helps.

What do people do with leftover medications? I had a failed IVF cycle and am planning to a frozen cycle. I have 2 boxes of endometrin and now the doctor wants to switch me to crinone. Do people sell them, give these to the clinic even though you paid a lot for the meds? I hate to see it go to waste.
