IF Sister in need of meds

A fellow IF sister, Jennifer, recently emailed me sharing that she's going into her first IVF cycle. As usual, she is another who is not insured and is paying completely out of pocket (because American health care coverage for IF SUCKS) and has had to really scrape it together just to get this one opportunity. Like me, she has also been trying to conceive for five years and has so far done two IUIs. If anyone has any spare medication that might help her out, please email me at redrivershel AT gmail dot com. Thanks!

Hi Shelby,

I don't know of anyone right now with unused/extra medication, but will keep my eyes peeled. Also, perhaps her clinic will donate some unused meds? I think someone once mentioned checking out or posting in Stirrup Queens for meds, but I just went and didn't see anything...

Good luck to Jennifer.

Clarification...heard about posting in Lost and Found section of Stirrup Queens (but again, didn't find anything)

Since I was lucky enough to get some sample meds from my clinic (and also from amazing buddies), that was one of my first suggestions. LFCA was #2. I am a HUGE fan of drug peddling and would totally be a dealer (without the profit) if I had any left!

I thought you were already a Tootsie Roll dealer? ;>

My inventory is diverse. :)
