Before booking your trip, connect with your nurse or physician to best anticipate the amount of medication you might need while you'll be away. If you will be traveling for a period of time, you may need additional quantities of medication, which may require an authorization from your insurance company.
Seven Traveling Tips
- If you are flying, contact your airline to discuss the appropriate way to travel with needles and syringes. Many fertility centers can provide you with a note of necessity.
- Keep prescriptions in original packing with your full name and pharmacy information.
- Keep medications in hand held luggage and take them with you on board in the event your luggage is lost or stolen.
- Pack medications in a clear plastic bag.
- Don’t forget to pack alcohol wipes and a travel-sized hand sanitizer.
- Dispose of used syringes appropriately in a safe plastic sharps container.
- Purchase an insulated lunch bag and frozen gel pack to carry any medications that require refrigeration. Most airlines will not allow frozen water (ice cubes).
- All medications should be presented and screened separately in a clear resealable bag.
