Anyone in the same boat or has experience with this situation? I will gladly appreciate any feedback.

I had understood that even doing monitoring used up your OHIP cycle.
If you never made it to retrieval that was unfortunate but that once you started your monitoring your cycle was used. I think them letting you try again as a funded cycle is pretty lucky.

If your funded IVF cycle is cancelled prior to retrieval, you are allowed one more chance as per the regulations. The second attempt has to be with the same clinic. Your clinic does not get any payment from the government for any services rendered until you have completed the second funded attempt. They are not compensated at all for the cancelled first cycle. Your second funded attempt is considered a cycle regardless of whether or not you get to retrieval.

I think testrun is right. The funded cycle can end in any of these ways:
- 2 cycle monitoring attempts with no egg retrieval
- 1 failed egg retrieval
- 1 failed surgical sperm removal and no alternate sperm source
- fertilization and culture of all eggs resulted in no viable embryos to transfer
- thawing/culture of all frozen embryos resulted in no viable embryo to transfer
- all viable embryos have been transferred
Since yours was a cycle monitoring attempt with no egg retrieval you are allowed to try it again. Since it is part of the same funded cycle, I think you're stuck with your clinic.
