The following may be too graphic for most. I am documenting it as a reminder of the next time someone wants to RX provera for me!

Picture it 4 am Saturday morning, you wake up startled. You go to move in the bed and you feel...a GUSH...OMG what's going on?!? Run to the bathroom half a sleep, no glasses trying not to gush on the way. All hell breaks loose in my undies. Wash, rinse repeat almost every hour for the entire weekend. If I left my house it was for a very shot period of time. Gravity is not my friend. I was hoping it would go away before work on Monday. Not entirely. Not as bad, but not entirely gone.

I have given myself 2 shots so far. It does not hurt. DH is a punk lol and can't give me the shot, so I have been doing it myself...his part...he pinches my skin.

I was having a bad time finding the HCG shot. I have been calling around since Friday....this is what I get...

CVS (my regular pharmacy) ~ Wants $105 for the generic and they would have to order it from the warehouse.

Walmart ~ Wants $65.88 for generic and I would have to order by 7pm on Friday to get it on Tuesday.

Walgreens ~ Wants $61.99 for the generic and I have to order by 5pm on Monday to get it next day. A second call (after what I learned at RiteAid) to Walgreen's shows that the warehouse they use does not have HCG in stock at the mo'.

RiteAid PKA Eckerd ~ Wants $56.19 for generic and if they ordered it Friday night I would get it Saturday. I went straight to RiteAid, first they acted like the didn't know what I was talking about or that I even called them. They called the warehouse and dun dun dun ...they don't have any in stock.

I called Freedom Pharmacy this morning....they want $38.40 including the needles and syringes and free overnight delivery. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo freaking HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo!! I called my RE and they are faxing the Script over.

What a relief.

*Update* My HCG will arrive tomorrow via FEDEX!!!! I am so freaking excited.

You are on such an adventure! Go you on the price/fact-checking!

Trace said...

Don't forget that with Freedom you need to have someone sign for it.
