Unused IVF meds

I've just found out I'm pregnant naturally after starting down-regging shock

Obviously I'm proceeding with caution until we see a heartbeat, but what can I do with my leftover drugs? The pharmacy would just destroy them if I gave them in - is there anyone on here who's managed to donate them to a couple in need, and if so how did you do it?

It's illegal to 'donate' prescription medication to anyone else. The only thing you can do is return them to the pharmacy...

Congratulations! If you can't give them away maybe keep them until they expire. If it's like 2 years or something you may find yourself back at IVF clinic planning treatment (like after you give birth, if there were difficulties conceiving again naturally). Shame if they're wasted but all you should worry about now is celebrating your success! Good luck x

Yay! Congratulations!
Yep, OP is correct, you’re absolutely not allowed to give them away which is disappointing and shockingly sad for those that are so incredibly desperate.
I have everything crossed for you x
