Hey all, 


It's looking like ivf will be our answer after our 3rd failed IUI and 15th medicated cycle with not even a blip of hcg on the quantitatives. 


Our clinic (toronto west) works with create, they've told us they find out their funding amount for this year at the end of March, at which point they will tell us if we make this year's cut or have to wait till next year. 


I'm wondering though, has anyone gone on another clinic's wait list as well as their main clinic? Repromed is in the same building as toronto west, which is only a 10 minute drive from home. I want to call and ask them but am worried about getting black listed or something for trying to get on two lists, but I'm not even sure if that's frowned on or not? 


I'm referring to the OHIP covered single cycle we get, that has the insane wait lists everywhere.

It is absolutely okay to get on the wait list at multiple clinics.

I was not aware of that. Good to know.

I have a Fertility Feelings Facebook group:  https://www.facebook...47599005269377/

TL:DR: I'm 38.  Husband's 42.


Husband had seminoma (testicular cancer) at 27, orchiectomy of one, no chemo first time, all gone as of 2009 CT scan.

Began dating July 2012.


Targeting fertile window since July 2013, had a donated vial of sperm for an unmedicated IUI (2015) and several informal private known donors, all unsuccessful so far.


Married July 4th, 2016.


Discovered seminoma recurred Jan 2017 in his abdomen. Had chemo in April 2017. Tumor shrunk significantly.


Diagnosis: Severely low sperm count, and now sterile indefinitely due to chemo.



We have 8 vials of sperm frozen at the local clinic. Considering a move to QC or ON for at least partial funding, or looking at mini IVF.

I know this is older but when I filled out the funding paperwork it states that you cannot submit it at multiple clinics. I switched clinics to Juno as they told me there was no wait list for a funded cycle and Dr Bentov moved me to Anova as it was closer to me. My funding paperwork got a bit mixed up or I would have started last month, but from first consult to my funded IVF cycle is was 3 months with Anova.
