Can I use non-expired PIO...

from a vial that's been open for a few months?

Re: Can I use non-expired PIO...

  • I am curious how it is non-expired after a few months.  Because I received mine December 31st and it expires Feb. 11th.  Maybe it's just the preparation? But you can always check with your pharmacist to be sure.

  • Thanks for your response :) All of mine have always had an expiration date of about a year from when they were shipped to me.  I have a couple more unopened vials to use also, and in the mean time will call the pharmacy. Thanks again!

  • With my last IVF cycle, the PIO I got lasts for several months before it expires.  However, the information I received said that I should discard any remaining in an open vial after so many days (I think it was 30 days, but it could have been less).

    ETA - I meant to add:  So, you should check with your pharmicist.
