Does anyone have any experience with injectables? Is there a website to purchase these at a lower cost? I have a month of clomid then my fertility doctor wants to try injections.

I don't know the name of it yet. I am 44 and have never had kids. Been married going on 11 years, married in my 30's first time.

Thanks for any information

I am 40 y/o and have tried 2 rounds of clomid prior to starting injectibles this cycle. I was not ovulating naturally and hoped the clomid would help...it didn't. Now my RE has me on injectibles (Repronex - 3 vials daily). I will go for a u/s tomorrow to see how I am responding. I am hoping for the best.

I buy my injectibles from a pharmacy in NJ that overnites them to me. They are the cheapest I found although I didn't search online for it.

I just ordered from ivfmeds.com on Tuesday--they had the best prices I could find--and my shipment arrived bright and early and without incident on Friday. But--found out Friday afternoon that I'm pregnant. It was my second try with Clomid and I'll be 43 next week.

All the best--Liz

Yes, I have LOTS of experience with injectibles and actually got pregnant at age 46 using injectibles. They are very expensive though so you want to make sure you ONLY do them on good cycles where your FSH is low and your E2 is normal on CD3. There are a variety of different brands of injectibles but they all work in roughly the same way. I used Gonal-F and was taking 4 vials/day. The amount you take will depend upon your response and you should be closely monitored with blood tests and ultra sounds. How was your response on clomid? There are places where you can order them online. Check out our TTC Over 40 Website.... the link is at the top of this board. Go to the Female Fertility page and there are links there for information on injectibles and also links to places where you can order drugs online. Here is another web page link with all sorts of information on injectibles... http://www.angelfire.com/moon/satie37/Female4.html
