This really upsets me. I had 4 miscarriages and finally was able to carry a child to term with pregesterone. They are going to cause alot of infants deaths. And alot of heartache for mothers. Changing the price will just cause expectant mothers who cant afford it to let their babies die...KV is the devil an should be ashamed of what their doing.

Why didn't you adopt? I do not understand this desire to reproduce. Sex is fun sure but we can have sex without increasing the population especialy the population of defectives.

My first born was premature(36wks), my second born was term and my third born was term. I never had any progesterone shots with any of my three pregnancies. So, just because you have a premature birth doesn't necessarily mean your other pregnancies will result in a premature birth. I wonder if this pharmaceutical company could come up with a drug to help ease the withdrawals of drug addicted babies?
There are other reasons that women take this injection...i take them monthly just to keep the lining of my uterus up just to get pregnant and stay pregnant....before this drug I suffered 4 miscarriages and a 24 weeker that passed away..if this drug is too expensive I may never get the chance to birth my own full term child

If we charge $1,000 per gallon of gas, just think of all the drunk drivers that could be stopped.

How about $1,000 per pack of cigarettes? Consider all the tobacco related illnesses and health care costs that could be saved.

Oh, and charge $1,000 tax on fast food purchases and junk food items, as well.

I like this thought.

Glad to see that someone is concerned about this problem however the government should be looking at all pharmaceutical companys. My medication,Copaxone, went up 10% in January and without and explanation. It went from $3,100 to $3,500 a month. This is highway robery and no one can stop them and they know it!

How can they have "exclusive" rights to sell something that has been around 50 years, and is therefore in the public domain? If it's been around 50 years, it is not covered by a patent, and if it has been made by multiple compounding pharmacies, it is not a trade secret, either. I certainly hope Buchta and other pharmacies like his will continue to make and sell this substance, and will defend their right to do so in court if they are sued. Such a suit should never even make it to the courthouse.

My Name is Jessica Young I am 27 years old. My husband and I were trying for a baby. However I suffered from PCOS and was told that conceiving was going to be difficult for me. I decided to share this post for a number of reasons , one being to relate to others who may be going through similar situations, as well as to help share how I coped with my own fertility battle.
I first found out I had PCOS when I was 21 years old. For me being told that I may not be able to have children almost seemed like a cruel joke. I was devastated to say the least however my faith in God has brought me to a place of peace. Not to say that I donít get anxious or frustrated. I have shed many tears alone and with my husband over this situation. I have questioned it over and over in my head. It became an obsession. That took over me mentally and emotionally. After a while it built a strength I didnít know I had. This is why I am able to speak openly about it. I think the biggest heartache for me was seeing how it affected my Husband. This is an issue I had for years, I grew accustomed to the negative pregnancy test, the symptoms, the bad news, the disappointment, the constant questions from family and friends of when I was having a baby. But the moment I seen my husband cry It brought a whole other dimension to the situation. And I became more pro-active than I have ever been in trying to get some answers.
I found Pauloīs blog http://bottleherbs.wordpress.com/ commercializing a product called la botella and tried dominican bottle herbs twice. After so many times without success what did I have to lose? It was a miracle right after using the second bottle. I will never forget this moment when we got the news. I even went to Dominican Republic to visit Paulo he brought me to the village where an elder lady cooks the remedie it is first class . high standard higienic and home made that works!
