What are Black Market Fertility Drugs?

Fertility drugs are expensive, and the cost that comes with treatment can be an overriding stress for some patients. So in order to ease the financial strain, some people are turning to black market fertility drugs.

A quick perusal online—especially on some message boards—can yield many women who are offering to sell their unused fertility drugs at a reduced cost. But what are the risks associated with these black market fertility drugs?

Fertility drugs are prescription meds that must be handled and stored properly. When you buy fertility drugs from another person, you have no guarantee that the drugs were stored according to guidelines, that they were not tampered with, or they were not contaminated. Plus, you can’t even be sure they actually are what they say they are—they may be counterfeit.

Saving a few bucks isn’t worth jeopardizing your health. If you’re looking to save some cash, your best bet is to shop around—in reputable places. Try specialty pharmacies or online pharmacies. Just make sure the online pharmacy has a VIPPS Seal of Approval (which indicates they follow strict standards) and is a National Boards of Pharmacy Verified Internet Pharmacy.
