My lupron depot was $440 - also covered thankfully.
I will be on estrace for 10 days before they do a lining check. From there we'll see if I need more days and how many. I think my nurse said typically it's like 12 days? I am doing oral estrace so it may be different if you do shots or patches. I don't have to wait for my period, I just start estrace on Jan 26th.
My first PIO was in cottonseed oil, I will take sesame oil this time. I was hoping for olive oil (on the advice of my allergist) but they don't have it and I'd have to go to a special compounding pharmacy which would be inconvenient so I am hoping the sesame oil does the trick.
One word of advice - they will probably give you 18 gauge needles. You can totally inject with smaller needles (I think it worked for me with 22 gauge) but I had to draw out the oil with the 18 gauge from the vial, then switch to 22 gauge for the injection. I did this for my IVF #2 for 5 days before we had to do a freeze all and it was SO MUCH better. Ask your nurse.
