As I am writing this on July 13, 2016, we are booking funded IVF cycle into October 2017.

With the wait times over a year long, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The long wait does not mean inaction. Many patients elect to do a privately paid IVF cycle while waiting for the funded one. If it works, that’s great. If it doesn’t, there is a funded cycle in the queue with your name on it.
  • Repeat appointments with your doctor and updated blood tests may be required to ensure optimal treatment outcomes.
  • The terms of the Ontario Fertility Program may change while you are on the waiting list. Neither you nor our clinic have control over this. Should a change occur, we will work to make it as easy for our patients as possible.
  1. How long is the current wait for funded FET?

  2. Hi. I am waiting for an appointment to see a reproductive endocrinologist at your clinic. I will be turning 43 on September 2017. If I will need to do IVF does this mean I will miss out on a funded cycle if the wait times are over a year long?

  3. Is your clinic doing iui at the age of 45 years old patient?

  4. Hello,

    If you are approved for a government funded IVF cycle and during the egg retrieval process multiple eggs are retrieved and the lab harvests those eggs with sperm and multiple embryos survive, after one of those embryos are transferred to the uterus:
    – what happens with the remaining viable embryos? Do you have the option to freeze them?
    – If so, would using these frozen embryos in the future be now considered a FET transfer cycle and you do not have to pay out of pocket for another IVF cycle?

    Thank you.

  5. What is the current fertility wait?

  6. How long is the wait time for OHIP funded IvF currently? One needs to be under 43 when getting the funded IVF in order to be funded, correct?
