 Seeking info on obtaining Pergonal from Europe

I have read quite a lot in alt.infertility about obtaining Pergonal from
non US sources.  Some people belive it is not pure coming from Mexico or
France.  Any experience with this?  Also any reccomendations on affordable
place to get Perganol?  Thanks for your imput.  I will check this group,

Thanks!!

Dear Leeza,

There is an equivalent menotropins product available (Humegon [R] from
Organon).

The last couple of times my wife went through IVF at Greater Baltimore
Medical Center (GBMC) they prescribed Humegon.  It had the intended
effect on her estradiol levels (although unfortunately she didn't get
pregnant).

The only noticeable difference between the two preparations is that
Humegon appeared to cause more discomfort (burning sensation) at the
injection site.

Leeza,

I am currently using Pergonal from France and it appears to be working
just fine for me.  I go in tomorrow for an ultrsound to check
follicles.  

The pergonal was ordered from:

British and American Pharmacy
1, rue Auber (Place de l'Opera)
75009 Paris
Tele 331 47 42 49 40
FAX 331 42 65 29 42
Call and ask for Racheal. She speaks OK English. Send her a FAX first
with the following info:
Copy of the prescription
Visa # and expiration

Good luck.

Rachel

Hi all --

        Has anyone here done injections with a device called the "Biojector,"
from Health Management Inc. (HMI)?  It's a pneumatic thing which they claim
can do both subcutaneous and deep muscle injections, with anything that is
not oil-based (e.g., progesterone in oil).  They rent it for $80/month, and
I think you have to get the medications from them, though that may not be the
case.

        What I'm interested in knowing is if it is less painful or uncomfort-
able than regular injections, if it is easy to use, and if it can be done by
oneself instead of another person.

        Thanks.

I've never used a "Biojector," but I have had one used on me.  It hurt like
hell and left a bruise on my arm that took at least a week to disappear.
It's possible that the unit used on me was not set-up properly since the
nurse seemed surprised when I told her how painful it was.  I also don't like
the idea of an injection device being used on multiple patients, even if the
the chances of spreading infection that way are remote.  I plan to avoid that
thing in the future, if possible.  Just give me a good old-fashioned needle.
