Dear All

We are due to start our 2nd round of IVF in August. For our first round, I paid nearly R8 000 for the meds, but I must be honest, I did not shop around for the best prices.

The problem is that most of the "cheaper" outlets such as Clicks and Dischem, do not stock the meds such as Gonal F, Menopur, Cetrotide and Ovidrel, but are willing to order it though.

For our next round, I would like to find the cheapest outlets and see if I can maybe cut the meds bill. I am particularly interested in the price of the Gonal F pen - I paid a whopping R2700 for the 900 IU at Kloof and will need 3 :ohmy:

Please post where you bought your meds and what you paid.

Thanks!

I work with these meds and I recon your price is average to be honest.

Good luck with the second round.

Klipper - sterkte met rondte twee!!! Ons het ons IUI meds by Clicks se apteek gekoop op ons Clicks kaart - en ons het horde cash-back vouchers gekry. Een maand tot R400. So dit was vir ons die moeite werd om dit daar te koop...

Hi,

Ek begin volgende maand met IVF, my dokter sê dat ek tot R3000 toe kan spaar deur die medikasie by Discem self te kry.

Baie sterkte!!!

Thanks everyone!

I also suspected that both Clicks and Dischem are a little cheaper :laugh: . @Hoping, a R3000 saving would also be welcome this side, hence the query ;) I'm really not too worried about saving on the the other meds - it's only the Gonal F pen that's such a bugger.

It's just that Clicks and Dischem don't keep them in stock, but are willing to order within 24 hours, which is a problem, cause I see the FS on CD2 to get the script and have to start the injections the same evening. But I'll ask the FS to not give me a repeat, but rather 4 seperate scripts - then I'll get the 1st expensive one from the hospital's pharmacy which always has stock and the rest from Clicks / Dischem ( 1 pen lasts 3 days, so I'll be able to order in advance!).
