Have been sniffing around the PBS site this morning seeing if one of the meds I'm currently taking for one of my "Mental Health Issues" has been put on the PBS at the last meeting they had in July. Of frucking course it hasn't!!!
Anyhoo..Was checking the "Advance Notices" list for Sept (just in case!!) and saw on the IVF list that a new drug called "Bemfola" has been approved (it's apparently biosimilar to Gonal-F) and that Gonal-F is going to be taken off the PBS (obviously to be replaced with this stuff).
There's also an alteration to a product that's biosimilar to Menopur called "Pergoveris" (and that sh!t is expensive on it's own without the PBS)....Has anyone heard/used these products yet??? Just curious is all
Here's the link to the PBS listings and one to some info on Bemfola:
Ok update from me im cautiously optimistic im 14dpo today. However after several chems and mc im still very nervous.
You bloody beauty @midnite01!! That's a stonking second line!!! Has DH seen it? When's your blood test? You quietly suspected it didn't you? Oh my, what a wonderful wonderful result. Stick precious little one stick!!!
Could hear the rustling of a stick packet from miles away
