Gonal f dosage question

I am ordering meds for upcoming cycle. I am private pay so trying to save every penny.

I will need to take 300 units of gonal f every day. This was called in as 900 unit pens, with instructions that i use 1/3 as a dose. When i askec nurse if i could do 300 unit pens instead she said this would be a waste of plastic.

Frankly, i am thinking i could have leftovers and that once pen is opened it neefs to be used in a few weeks, so to avoid wasting a dose or two if extra, i am wondering if i should insist on 300 unit pens. When i pressed nurse, she looked at me like i had 5 heads so maybe i am missing something?

Keep in mind that 300 units cost about $300 so if i loose 2 doses thats $600.

Appreciate your thoughts,
M
