I am permanent resident since September 2018 (made soft landing, got my PR card and returned to my home country).


I have a history of infertility, need to undergo treatments and that was the reason I returned to my country (I needed surgery(myomectomy) and since treatments are cheaper and more accessible here I decided to stay for a while).


I have spent a year in my home country trying to get pregnant, but have not succeeded.


I don't want to postpone my movement any longer and want to permanently move to Ontario and get an OHIP.


My concern is that I would not be able to continue my treatments and get proper diagnosis with OHIP (my diagnosis is not clear till now).


To what extent is infertility treated in Ontario and how expensive it is (either through OHIP or private clinics)?


Did anyone experience infertility problems and got a cure?
