Kim Kardashian might be having twins after allegedly undergoing IVF treatments. In fact, in vitro fertilization ‘definitely increases’ the chances of having two babies, an expert source reveals to HollywoodLife.com. Find out the scoop!
Kim Kardashian, 34, might be blessed with having two babies after allegedly undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments to get pregnant again. HollywoodLife.com spoke to a celebrity infertility doctor who revealed that the chances of multiple pregnancy is 23% when you do IVF, whereas in nature the chances are 2%. So how exactly does IVF increase the chances of having two babies? Find out all the details!
When asked whether or not it’s possible to request only one child while undergoing IVF, Dr. Sam Najmabadi told HollywoodLife.com, “In IVF we can put in 1 embryo ‘Single Embryo Transfer’ back into the uterus, which will reduce the chance of multiple pregnancies. By doing a SET there is still a small chance of the embryo splitting, or not getting pregnant at all. The standard of care says on day 5 you can transfer up to 3 embryos into the uterus of anyone above age 40. Below age 40 is 1-2 embryos. So if you want to reduce the chance push for a SET – Single Embryo Transfer.”
A report claimed that two of Kim’s eggs were fertilized, and that “she is waiting to see if they both ‘stick’ before she makes any kind of announcement.” Twins or no twins, Kim is just so “grateful” to be pregnant again after doctors told her it was nearly impossible to get pregnant again. Sam also tells us that someone can go through IVF several times and still get pregnant naturally.
“Yes this is possible that you may need it and then on the second baby it happens naturally,” he continues. “Many times people who are having issues getting pregnant won’t need help on the second pregnancy and will conceive naturally as long as the reason for doing IVF is not blocked tubes and lack of sperm or ovarian function. Most often it is people with endometriosis that have issues and once they have a child the issues from their uterus are cleared up from the pregnancy.”
Kim put her haters in their place after a nasty rumor blew up when Wendy Williams told her audience that she thinks Kim is using a surrogate and “will buy prosthetics to baby up for every month.” Kim was not exactly able to shake Wendy’s accusation off!
The reality star took to Twitter to slam the rumors in a series of tweets, saying, “People make up so much even people close who u think are legit. Truth time.” See the rest of her angry tweets here!
