    I'm a patient of dr m, I've only ever paid $37 for two boxes of clexane.

    Dr m normally does 400mg pessaries and it's cheaper from a compounding chemist. One of the cheapest around is Kingswood compounding and they'll post Aus wide. I think slades in Mel is pretty reasonable too.

    Dr m never ticks the ob's thing on my scripts, the pharmacy just charges the pbs price. I'd double check with pharmacy.

    You're in Melbourne? I think Brisbane is a bit more expensive. That said I've only got Progynova from a hospital pharmacy and I think they have quite a markup - don't know why it wouldn't be PBS, unless it's because I get so much stuff and there is a limit. I've learned with this IVF caper that we need to shop around for drugs!

    You start progesterone before transfer don't you? I think I started crinone for like a day after EPU in my first cycle, But then stopped bcos wasn't transferring
    I work in pharmacy, and they are definitely on the PBS. You need your doctor to write you an authority script though. Same goes for the crinone. Oripro is 3 boxes for $38.30 ($6.20 if you have a concession card) crinone is 2 boxes for same price.

    Default IVF over 40#24

    You do need to meet certain criteria for an authority script. I'm not sure about the Prognova or pred, as they aren't expensive drugs anyway. PBS is when you pay the scheduled price for a more expensive drug ($38.30), and the government subsides the rest. I'm lucky to get everything at cost. Crinone is $153 a box with no authority (that's what I was paying at cost).

    I'm completely confused by all of this. I'm gonna just ask Dr M if he purposely didn't tick the PBS box and why?
    Some medicines are & some aren't. The government decides, not the pharmacy, and then the Dr has to write the correct script 😊

    @gagangi stupid question, but do chemist warehouse do our ivf cycle drugs? I've only been getting mine at hps pharmacy Albany creek cause that's where I was told to go get them. I've never even thought of going somewhere else I just assumed they weren't carried by other normal pharmacies?

    @Tinachris - I used to get all meds in the pharmacy in FS's building, until I found out their DHEA is $30-50 more than what others on here were paying (thanks ladies!). I then asked my local discount pharmacy - it's tiny and they said they could order everything in for me, but Inofolic. This cycle I've gone to them first with all scripts and they've had them. Their prices are excellent. They don't carry the refrigerated products, but can get them - so I'll see how timing works. We find fridge meds take up a lot of room in our fridge and I worry about cold spots so try to get them last minute. You need a compounding pharmacy for DHEA ($75 seems to be Bne rate) and Melatonin, but some smaller pharmacies (like my local) are part of a group and can order compounded meds with a day or twos notice. I haven't tried the chemist warehouse, but I'd ask. I'd expect a suburban pharmacy at Albany Creek should be cheaper than Wickham Terrace?

    Sorry I haven't been keeping up with everyone personally, we are away for a few days.

    Well, BFN this morning which now is nine days late for AF. Even though I logically didn't really think it would be positive, it is amazing how those slivers of hope jump on to make you think it just *might* be possible. So it was actually really disappointing even though it shouldn't have been.

    Now I have no idea what is going on unless I did have that spontaneous ovulation just before AF & am only 9dpo & it's too early to show up yet. Or my cycle did get totally thrown out with that virus & will show up sometime, or I just hit menopause... This is beginning to really frustrate me, I don't know what is going on!
