Hormone replacement therapy / Re: Estrogen prescriptions

I have Caremark insurance (CVS) and delestrogen as brand name, uncovered, is $187 a vial as of about a year ago so it may be higher. I would suggest you ask what discounts they offer and if you have insurance, argue for coverage if no generic is available (I got Caremark to cover delestrogen last year at the generic rate due to the shortage of the generic).

As of 12/2018, the generic is available again, so maybe try getting your hands on that instead.

Also, it seems that grocery store pharmacies are often more likely to work with you if you are off insurance. I have a couple tier 3 prescriptions that are not covered (like finesteride) and Wegmans of all places seems to be the lowest cost near me. As others have said definitely shop around and do not hesitate to ask for a lower price.

As others also mentioned, Mazzoni is subsidized since it’s charter is to serve the uninsured and poor.

Wow, I’m feeling ripped off, paying out of pocket until I catch up in Kaiser’s gatekeeping.  Went to CVS because it’s down the street,  but I’m paying $255 for a 20 week supply of EV from Perrin. Patches before that were $82 a month for effectively lower doses.

Swanson, I think you’ve hit on the fundamental element of fulfillment.  To be fulfilled you need to true to yourself alone, and by virtue of the fact you’ve recognized you are unique, you won’t waste precious life trying to fit into a mold that isn’t you.  Celebrate your uniqueness and apologize not one bit for any of it.  You go girl!

The first time I was addressed correctly was over a year ago now. 99% of people out there get it right now but it still surprises me every time when people say She/her/maam/ladies etc. I'll never get tired of that! Makes all the pain and loss totally worth it.

Keep on keeping on with the little steps and they all add up. :)

I am glad everything is fine with your recovery and hope it gets better each day.  I am definitely taking notes on this one as I know I will freak out if I see lots of blood.  How’s dilation so far? Easier and less painful? I will head out to Thailand exactly 3 weeks from today and my surgery is on the 19. At this point, I’m only going to have secondary sigmoid to fix my lost depth. There might be a chance dr Sutin will do fat transfer on my vulva to have the vagina less of a gapping .  Mine doesn’t look too bad but when I spread my legs, I feel like my vagina opens a little bit haha .  Can’t wait to hear more of ur experience because you are really helping me to prepare for my upcoming surgery ❤️

You might want to try another pharmacy.  Maybe someone there is making a mistake.
