Kim Kardashian's Fertility Struggles Are So Much Worse Than We Imagined

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Kim Kardashian has been vocal about her desire to give daughter North a sibling, but after a year of trying to conceive with no luck, she and Kanye West are understandably ready to look into other family-expanding options.


A source close to the couple tells Us Weekly that Kim and Kanye are giving further thought to surrogacy.

The insider even went so far as to reveal that Kim has been undergoing IVF, which is causing problems with her body. During the May 31st Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode, we will learn that Kim had an embryo implanted that didn't take.

As any woman who has ever worried about or struggled with fertility knows, it's exhausting and gut-wrenching. Personally, I think it's incredibly brave to air any of this on KUWTK. It's a constant reminder of your biggest obstacle, and that can't be easy to re-watch after living through it.

But back in December, TMZ reported that Kim had three separate fertility specialists tell her she couldn't get pregnant prior to conceiving North, so that must mean there's still hope, right?

If Kim is continuing to talk about her issues, it's a sure sign that she's staying positive. Even back in April, Kim was very open while chatting with Matt Lauer for a Today Show interview. She was asked if adoption was on the table. She said:

I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try. I still have hope, so I'm just going to keep on trying. Never say never. I mean, we haven't talked about adopting.

Considering how heartbreaking struggling with fertility is, we're pulling for you Kim!
