Buying Fertility Drugs

The fertility clinic writes you a prescription for fertility drugs, and you head to a local pharmacy to fill it. Right? Not so fast. Many types of pharmacies exist to fill your prescription.

You’ve got options on where to buy fertility drugs – and decisions to make. Base those decisions on several factors: cost of fertility medications, convenience, ease of purchase, which pharmacies will have medications in stock, and the level of customer service the pharmacy will provide.

Choices include:

  • Specialty fertility pharmacy
  • Online pharmacy
  • Local pharmacy
  • Big-box drugstore

So talk with your clinical team and see if they have any recommendations, and take a few minutes to shop around.

The EU Tissues and Cells Directive sets out standards of quality and safety that should be met within countries within the EU/EEA, but the HFEA recommends that in any case, would-be patients should research their chosen clinic thoroughly and ask about its standards of treatment and care.

There are a number of reasons you might not be getting pregnant, and you should absolutely see a fertility doctor to get help figuring out why. A fertility doctor, also known as a reproductive endocrinologist, can do a fertility workup - testing - to determine why you're not getting pregnant and help you get pregnant. There's a search on every page of, to find a doctor or clinic in your area - just type in your zip code. You can also go to and fill out a form to find a fertility doctor that is right for you.

Best of luck, and let us know how it turns out.
