Kourtney Kardashian opened up about the difficulties she has been facing in the IVF process to try to conceive and have her first child with Travis Barker. in the last episode of The Kardashiansthe businesswoman said that the journey is being arduous especially for her physique.
“He was able to retrieve the egg, but he didn’t make it to the embryo stage. We’ve started over and we’re at Dr. A’s office to check my follicles,” she lamented.
Despite the setbacks, Kourtney received positive news at the doctor’s office. The professional revealed, in his last collection, that “this [óvulo] is the best we can get, we had never gotten to this point”.
“It’s nice to hear good news and have some positivity, so we love that, but we’re just hoping to hear Dr. Wood’s final thoughts when he gets my blood test and can actually examine the follicles,” Kourtney explained on the show.
IVF began in mid-October, two days after Travis Barker proposed to Kourtney Kardashian. She recently appeared on the reality show, describing the process as “horrific”.
According to the businesswoman, the strong medication she has been taking for the process has made her depressed. “It’s awful. Travis and I want to have a baby and my doctor took us down this IVF path and it wasn’t the most amazing experience,” she said.
Kris Jenner then asked if the difficulties were medication related, and Kourtney said yes. “It got me into depression. I think because I’m so clean and careful about what I put in my body, the medication is just giving the complete opposite reaction and it’s working as a contraceptive instead of helping us,” she explained.
Kourtney and Travis were married last Sunday (15) in Santa Barbara, and were clicked by paparazzi as they left the court. At the time, they drove a classic black lowrider convertible with the words “Newlyweds” through the city streets after saying the official yes in Santa Barbara court.
