Kim Kardashian has been undergoing IVF as struggles continue to conceive a second child, a new report says.
It’s no news that the reality star has been desperately trying to get pregnant, according to Us Weekly she has turned to in vitro fertilization to increase her chances.
‘Kim has been undergoing IVF,’ a source told the publication. ‘It’s causing problems with her body.’
Us Weekly alleges that Kim will reveal an implanted embryo did not take during Sunday’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians mid-season finale.
A preview clip for this week’s episode shows Kim lying down on a doctor’s table in tears with her mother Kris Jenner, as they look at an ultrasound together.
Kim said in December that she was considering IVF, as she shared her struggle to conceive naturally.
After doctors suggested that a surrogate may be the best way for Kim to have another child, her mother Kris Jenner was quick to volunteer eldest daughter Kourtney to take on the role.
‘Kourtney would probably do it,’ Kris offered, but Kim wasn’t so sure about the idea.
She said: ‘To have a surrogate is really scary to me. I don’t want one. I wouldn’t dare ask anyone to do that for me.’
The pair had the discussion before Kim underwent an operation to remove a piece of her placenta that was left after delivering North in June 2013, in the hope it would help her chances of conceiving naturally.
