Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a referral?
By getting a referral the cost of your first visit is paid by OHIP. This helps us keep any “out-of” OHIP costs to a minimum.
Do I need any testing prior to referral?
No. As experts in fertility assessment we are happy to arrange all testing. (If any tests have been done please ensure they are forwarded to us)
Do you do donor insemination?
Yes. Donor insemination has been available here since 1991 for single women, LGBTQ couples and couples with sperm factor problems.
What if I have had a tubal ligation or vasectomy?
Durham Fertility has experts trained in microsurgery and can reverse both procedures.
Is there a maximum age?
There are no effective treatments for women over 43 except donor egg programs.
Why do you have psychologists associated with your clinic?
Infertility is one of the most stressful times in a couples life. Emotional health is just as important as physical health. We strongly urge you to see one of our consultant psychologists even if its just for one or two sessions.
