The mail order pharmacy called today and the Endometrin (progesterone suppositories - that are apparently so much better than the ones I had last time) are not a specialty drug that needs to be called in and the trigger shot is not a drug that is covered by my plan and will need to be paid for out of pocket... ugh.  I can't complain since all of my office visits and ultrasounds are covered.  $150/ month is a very minimal cost considering what it could be costing me!  It can still come out of my HSA, so at least it isn't an additional expense that we need to budget for.  I talked to the nurse today and the Novarel trigger is the cheapest, but apparently there is a national shortage so they reserve that for the couples doing IVF because that is  drug they have to have.  I am super relieved that I can easily get all of the prescriptions I need instead of having to a mail order them.

I have been taking my OvaCue reading this month and it will be interesting to see how they correlate to my midcycle monitoring.  From past experience and what I know about the OvaCue, the trigger shot and suppositories will impact the results.  I am using it alongside OPKs (starting Monday) to make sure we do not miss ovulation prior to my mid-cycle monitoring.
