  • When you arrive for cycle monitoring, there are three clipboards where you can sign your name depending on the reason for your visit: bloods, ultrasound, and/or physician.
  • If you are receiving an injection, only by the nurse (i.e. no blood tests or ultrasounds), then sign on the physician’s clipboard and indicated ‘nurse only’ next to your name.
  • For donor sperm insemination, first go to the Andrology department and make a request to thaw the sample. Following this, sign up for your blood test and ultrasound.
  • Please email (cyclemonitoring@createivf.com) or call (416-323-7727 extension 2329) nurses for cycle monitoring related questions (e.g. medication and treatment questions). Email is preferable to voicemail if no one is available to take your call.
