Requested a repeat prescription for oestrogen.

Having previously moaned that the NHS dispensed only two months supply and it falls out of sync with the three monthly injections.
Got a text message (in our actual name 👍) from the pharmacy to say we could collect. Dropped our wife off there as we took the kitten to the vets.
She rang to ask what we were expecting as the bag was huge.
This time they dispensed 7 bottles 🤣

Random, but we prefer it this way 🤣🤣🤣


@CreatureOfTheHill Ahh, that's more like it! That should be good for two applications of two pumps each daily.

(Reminds me of one time my practice prescribed 12 weeks of one item, 8 of another, and 4 of the other =:)


We had stashed some bottles from when we were getting private prescriptions, just to be on the safe side.
But now, it feels like we are some sort of hormone prepper 🤣

That 12/8/4 split sounds very typical from what we get talking to people about our GP practice. 🤦‍♀️


@CreatureOfTheHill *grin* Why yes, I do have a bag in the closet with a spare four bottles of Oestrogel, a month of finasteride, and months of progesterone, given it seems difficult to obtain that under the NHS, and I can't really justify maintaining GenderGP just for that. ^_^; (Oh, so nice to not be getting dinged £15/mo by them any more! I actually felt rather sorry to write the "I don't need you any more" note to them the other day, given how vital they were - I don't know how I'd've been able to start without them)
