Hello, I am a patient of Dr. Braverman (reproductive immunologist in NY) and I will be using Neupogen + IUI this upcoming cycle. My 1st time using Neupogen, I learned recently that its $4000 (for 10 small vials, from canadapharmacy.com). I was advised ordering it from Canada pharmacy is the cheaper option but we were not prepared to pay $4,000!!! Does anyone have recommendations for finding a less costly option? Our insurance coverage will not cover this drug and we must pay $1800 for the IUI package from Dr. B (package includes 2 IUIs + "case management" fee of $750).
My story: TTC since 2006, unexplained infertility (no pregnancy, normal hormones, ovulation, FSH). Hubby and I match on 5 HLA genes and have slightly elevated NKs. There is some mild DNA fragmentation which Dr. B is treating with the supplement (also expensive:Pycnegenol).
I will turn 40 in August and yes, the clock ticks louder every passing month.
