My province has approved government funded IVF for one single embryo transfer to any woman suffering from infertility of any kind.
Pretty awesome right? And it’s basically free (well we pay for it in our taxes each year). I am sooo lucky to live somewhere that has this option – and for free!
Except nothing is ever free. So Hubby and I meet the criteria, and applied for the program. We were accepted – which is super exciting – and we found out recently where we sit on the wait list.
Our IVF tentative date is 2021.
That’s five years. I mean – I know how lucky I and I will wait the five years but 2021? Holy shit. I’ll be 34. What about someone who’s that age now? They’d be denied because the program caps at 38.
It’s just so frustrating. I am so thankful to have this option available to us – but five years is so far away!
I guess it’s just a reminder than nothing is ever free. It doesn’t cost money but it costs time…and time isn’t something we all have.
Food for thought.
