Just a quick question. My RE gave me some left over Gonal-F from a patient who recently got pregnant. This is very kind, as my insurance does not cover infertility. However, 5 of the ampules show an expiration date of 4/2000. I did not notice this until I got home.

I called the nurse today to ask her about this and she told me I "should take them". Usually an expiration date means something, and I am concerned. Could they have lost some potency?

What would you advise - use them or discard them? Thanks in advance for your help.
