'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Recap: Khloe's Fertility Fears Are Confirmed

Khloe KardashianFor years now rumors have swirled about Khloe Kardashian being pregnant, not being able to get pregnant, and a whole host of other issues in between. We knew that she saw a doctor last season and things supposedly looked fine, but there still has been no pregnancy that we know of. Tonight on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we saw her find out what really may have been (and still is?) preventing her from getting pregnant.

While she'd seen a regular OB/GYN and other doctors, she'd never seen an actual fertility specialist. Kim, who was worried about her own fertility and considering freezing her eggs, actually suggested going to Khloe and made a double appointment for them. Khloe admitted that she was scared, and that in the back of her mind, she knew something was wrong.

It appears she was right.

After telling Kim that she was all clear and could start freezing her eggs anytime she wants, the doctor gave Khloe the news -- she didn't ovulate that month. And, of course, when there's no ovulation, there's no possibility of a pregnancy. The episode ended there and is "to be continued," but Khloe was evidently upset and terrified.

I'm hoping that next week we learn more and find out that her issue is treatable -- as many ovulation problems are. But no matter what happens, I have such admiration for her for sharing this painful part of her life. So many women face similar problems, and they're often heartbreaking. Seeing her go through it has got to be comforting for many.

Seeing Kris Jenner go through her second boob job, however, did no one any good. Why the hell she chose to share that with the world, I don't know, but there she was post-operation begging her children and Scott Disick to look at her tits. The only thing weirder than that was the fact that Bruce Jenner didn't seem to be there for her surgery or afterward.

There was also the little matter of Scott considering getting a vasectomy without telling Kourtney. Fortunately Rob Kardashian ratted him out and told Kourtney -- who no longer believes in birth control -- and they hashed it out. But those two, per usual, don't even seem to be in the same library, much less on the same page of the book. I can only imagine how difficult it was for Khloe to see them discuss whether they want two kids or 600 with such nonchalance when she'd do anything to have just one child.

Khloe didn't tweet nearly as much during this episode as she usually does, and at one point she let followers know how hard this one was for her: "I'm not a big crier. So I'm not too excited about what's coming up. Might have to stop watching. Sometimes hate reliving tough emotions." That was followed only by one more that told fans how much she loved them and a retweet of a quote that read, "Faith is having the courage to let God have control."

Hopefully the appointment we saw tonight was the beginning of Khloe getting to the bottom of her issues and figuring out a way that she and Lamar can realize their baby dreams one way or another. She certainly has a lot of love being sent her way and plenty of people cheering her on.

Do you admire Khloe for sharing her fertility struggles?

Actually, Katy Khan, you are being ignorant. A woman can fail to ovulate and still experience bleeding, which has lead many women to believe they're experiencing normal menstrual bleeding. I believe it's called anovulatory cycle. Just because you knew early on does not mean everyone does. Many people only realize fertilities issues after months of trying for a baby. Also, some women can test negative for PCOS and still fail to ovulate. Fertility issues are not cut and dry and experiencing infertility does not make you an expert on the topic. It's actually pretty arrogant to make assumptions about another person's knowledge and frame of mind based on your own experiences with a similar situation.

to the person who said that if you don't ovulate your periods are irregular. That's not true, a person can have what is called an annovulatory cycle. you can have a period but not release an egg, so this can go on for months before one would know something is wrong. whether she knew or not I can only imagine it's not easy doing things on t.v. so maybe curb the judgement just a tad bit.

As someone who had issues I can tell you I had very regular periods and NEVER ovulated. It depends entirely on the issue with your body. I would never had known there was a problem except I couldn't get preggers and was using an ovulation machine(which I totally recommend). When I never hit the high hormones with the machine I asked my doctor and sure enough no egg. I know a lot of this stuff is fake, but I do hope that this brings more info and hope to those that have struggled. After a year of meds, shots, and ultrasounds I was blessed with a baby. Just another food for thought I have insurance and one 7 pill round of femara was 160 dollars and if I had anything of viability a 75 dollar shot of hcg. I prey that one day the insurance companies actually help couples instead of bleeding them dry in their hopes for a family.

I'd be scared if I were Khloe. The thought of Kim having babies is TERRIFYING!!

That's sad. I hope it works out for them.

Also, it's by no means "arrogant" to say such a thing....do some research on infertility, or like me, do EXTENSIVE research if you can't get pregnant , it's not that hard to figure out whats wrong or that something IS wrong.  She's lucky she's finally sought help for it because in another 5 years or so she'd been on the downhill road to screwed.

Kourtney should be a surrogate for Khloe, depending on if that's a viable option! Win-win!

I did not think about or care whether or not I had a menstral cycle in my younger years. For me it was just a relief not to have to deal with cramps, bloating and rotten attitude changes. When I started thinking about having a family I just went about my merry little business of making babies and leaving it up to God. My first pregnancy was a surprise, not because I wan't trying, but a surprise because I was roughly four months along before I, or better yet the doctor figured it out. I did not have normal pregnancy symptons and if it wasn't for a routine yearly check up I would have gone even longer before I figured it out. Then three years later, it happened again. No symptoms, just a yearly physical and a phone call to my husband with the surprising news.
We all handle our stuff in different ways and one thing I have learned is that we all deal with our stuff when we are ready, mentally and emotionally to do so. Forcing the issue causes extra added stress and pressure, and frankly no one needs any extra helpings of that.
