The Fertility Clinic

The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving in Ontario and London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) continues to take actions to reduce transmission of the virus and help care for patients with COVID-19.

As per the Provincial directive, the hospital has reduced services to help keep people safe and maintain the capacity to care for patients with COVID-19.

LHSC has been following directives from the Ministry of Health and public health guidance. 

The Fertility Clinic will not be taking Day 1’s for IVF, IUIs and Frozen Embryo Transfers as of January 5, 2022, until further notice.

Please call The Fertility Clinic with your next Day 1. The phone lines will continue to be checked Monday to Friday routinely. 

We recognize that changes in our service delivery cause uncertainty and worry for patients and their loved ones. We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience. 

Important Announcements:

All visits will be by appointment only. No walk-in appointments will be permitted.

All staff are required to wear a mask. All patients are strongly encouraged to wear a mask or face covering from home.

All new patient appointments, including fertility counseling, will be conducted via telephone or virtually.

Upon arrival to the hospital, everyone (including staff) will be screened. This includes assessing your history of COVID-19 connections and asking about any COVID-19 symptoms you may be experiencing. We will ask you to perform hand hygiene once you enter the hospital.

As per LHSC’s visitor policy, partners and other support persons cannot accompany you for your visit in the clinic or wait in the clinic waiting room. This policy is changing frequently and this website will be updated if there are any major changes to the visitor policy.
