Buying Fertility Drugs Overseas

Buying Fertility Drugs Overseas

Infertility treatments are not only physically and emotionally burdening for the patients, but they also require a significant financial effort. In order to lower the costs, many people obtain their medication from other countries where these medicines are sold much cheaper than in the US. However, buying fertility drugs overseas is not that simple, and there are several major aspects to consider before you spend your hard-earned money on medication coming from abroad.

Checking the manufacturer

If you consider ordering your fertility drugs online, you must be aware that the product you get might not be up to the standards expected from this type of medication by the US Food and Drug Administration. Counterfeiting, unsatisfactory manufacturing or inadequate storage practices can all make the product risky, if not dangerous, especially if you order it from a developing country. However, if you are thorough enough when doing your research, you can collect enough information to be able to decide whether a product is worth buying or not.

Buying the right products

When ordering your fertility drugs overseas, you must be very careful to buy the product with the right parameters. It is essential that you have accurate information regarding the name, the ingredients and the dosage of the medication you are about to purchase, because drugs that contain ingredients different from the ones prescribed to you can still have names similar to the medicines you should be taking, or the dosage might be different. You can avoid ordering the wrong medicine by asking for detailed info about the medicines prescribed to you from your IVF clinic.


Look for quality

Any respectable pharmacy in the world will ask you to show your prescription before giving or sending you any fertility drugs (of course, if they are not OTC drugs). If they do not, you should look for another provider.

Plan in advance

Obtaining the fertility medication you ordered from a pharmacy overseas takes time. The shipment can take as long as 4 weeks, depending on the country of origin, so it is advisable that you order the drugs way before the scheduled treatment starts.

Though the process implies certain risks, buying fertility drugs overseas can really be worth the effort, especially if your insurance coverage is not extended to IVF treatments. Do your research right and you will see that there are numerous pharmacies overseas that offer the drugs you are looking for at reasonable prices.
