The End of the Gravy Train

We have been unbelievably fortunate that insurance has covered some of our treatments and all of the drugs so far. But, we have offically maxed out our injectible drug benefit. Considering that we managed 6 injectible IUI cycles on that money, I should be thrilled - "should" being the operative word. But, typical me, I can't help but be greedy. I want the insurance gravy train to continue so that I don't have to pay $2,000 for purified menopausal women's urine that I inject into my hip everynight. Of course, in a perfect world, I could have gotten knocked up the old-fashioned and very free way. We do not live anywhere near a perfect world. Which is why I am going to think positively about the points that I can get on my Mastercard from this which I can then redeem for cash. Anything to find the silver lining and keep me from complaining about that which I should not.

Just stumbled across your blog from a search term that someone else used to find my blog. I'm not "young and infertile" (as chronologically I'm past 40 but I once wrote about how young the IF symptoms can present, hence someone found my blog and I backtracked to yours.)

Insurance is so elusive when it comes to infertility treatments. I hope you can get as far as possible with coverage! Wishing you all the best.

I was just on your site today! I loved the article about the "fertility doctor". Thanks for posting!

Hey, complain away! The old "life isn't fair" bit never comforts anyone, ever, even if it is true. The thought of plunking down ten of thousands for medical procedures would make anyone moan.

I'm sorry you've had to go through all this.
