I'm sitting here crying, questioning if I'm making a big deal out of nothing.
Due to my bicornute uterus, I've suffered multiple recurrent miscarriages and had a large subchorionic hematoma with my last pregnancy that threatened a second trimester miscarriage. I take 200mg's of progesterone vaginally 2x a day to help my baby during the first trimester. My progesterone pills were yellow with my last pregnancy, but I'm having issues with this new pregnancy b/c these new pills are RED. Since I take them vaginally, I get a red discharge from this pills which look very similar to spotting/blood. How am I suppose to differentiate blood from the color of the pill??
I asked the pharmacist at walgreens if they had a different color other then red. They didn't and offered a refund if I hadn't used any of the pills. OF course I used some of the pills, I need them for my baby! The pharmacist was rude the entire time, I thought probably b/c she thought I was being crazy for asking for refund due to the pill color.. so I explained to her why the red color is an issue, but she proceeded to blame me for using them and that I should have known better. I HAD no idea that the red would cause a discharge color like that. I had yellow pills before, and yes, I had a discharge from that pill but since it was yellow I really couldn't tell.
OBVIOUSLY she doesn't understand the trials and tribulations that we have to deal with in high risk pregnancy and how devastating any spotting could be. So when a pill gives the impression of spotting and I have to question everytime if that red is from blood or the pill that is an issue. RIGHT?
Since they won't issue a refund, I can't refill my prescription at another pharmacy (one with white progesterone pills) because insurance won't pay for a back to back refill. It sucks because I'm stuck with these red pills, but mostly I'm upset because this lady was so rude and treated me like an irrational crazy person. Where is the compassion and understanding?
I wish I could complain or write a review on yelp, but this issue is so personal....
