Kim and Kanye West have been trying for baby number two, but are unfortunately having no luck. Kim has had trouble getting pregnant in the past, so could she be infertile? HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to several experts who weigh in on the probability of Kim getting pregnant again.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are eager to have a second child, and have been trying to get pregnant every attempt they can get! But is there any hope for the Keeping up with the Kardashians star? There’s a ton of factors that can cause pregnancy difficulties, and HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to doctors who shed light on whether or not those difficulties should affect Kim’s chance at getting pregnant again.
Kim Kardashian Pregnancy Trouble — Is The ‘KUWTK’ Star Infertile?
Kim has admitted that getting pregnant is hard for her, and even considers North a miracle baby. But our experts seem to think that Kim, 34, shouldn’t consider herself infertile.
The reality star was concerned that being on birth control for so many years may have affected her ability to get pregnant, but Dr. David Ghozland, M.D., a doctor who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, thinks being on birth control would not impact her ability to get pregnant at all.
“These are the main factors that can cause infertility: Age, abnormal hormones, anatomic abnormalities such as cysts on the ovaries, polyps, abnormal fibroids, fallopian tube abnormalities, and male factors such as abnormal sperm,” Dr. Ghozland tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“First of all, Kim should not label herself as infertile. It’s quite normal for a couple to have difficulty having a second child. There’s only a 20% success rate for a healthy fertile couple to conceive per ovulation cycle. I recommend that Kim wait at least one whole year of trying to get pregnant before starting an infertility program,” Dr. Ghozland explains.
Dr. Lynn Anderson, a doctor of Natural Health, weighs in that stress and sleep deprivation can affect getting pregnant as well. We know that Kim has been constantly on the move and has been missing Kanye while he’s been away. Plus, it doesn’t help that she’s stressed out by trying to get pregnant.
Dr. Lynn also says that weight loss or weight gain might be a reason as to why a woman can’t conceive, which is interesting because Kim lost a lot of weight after giving birth to North.
We also spoke to Dr. Tara Solomon, a medical director at the Women’s Wellness Center of South Florida, who sheds light on Kim’s difficult pregnancy.
“North is not a miracle baby,” Tara says. “Kim has been on birth control since she was a teenager. Kim is deathly afraid of gaining 50 pounds of baby fat. She admitted on the Ellen Degeneres Show how difficult her pregnancy was.”
Kim shouldn’t panic! It sounds like there’s plenty of things she can do, and maybe de-stressing is the most important thing! We have high hopes for Kim at having another shot at pregnancy and wish her the best.
