Heather Rae Young plans to document her fertility journey alongside her husband Tarek El Moussa.
Young, 34, posted a testimonial clip from her fertility clinic this past Tuesday, sharing her journey via TikTok.
Heather Rae Young had just finished an ultrasound, recounting how the technician checked her follicles, before beginning the video.
“I have six on one side, and then on the other side I have a cyst. Which is fine, they just monitor it, but she could not find any follicles on that side,” the reality star said.
“If we decide to move forward, we will start the process next week to get me ready for the egg-freezing in January. Last time I did this, I got six healthy eggs,” she continued. “So I have six on ice right now.”
Young continued, sharing how she needed to then get blood work done to determine what her egg count is and check her progesterone, to “see where my levels are at.”
She noted that “in the past, I had low fertility and low egg count.”
In the caption, Young wrote that she is “sharing my fertility process on ig [sic], hope this can help some of you ladies.”
Heather Rae Young, who married El Moussa earlier this year, revealed last month that she’s “open” to having children, after the couple previously shared they didn’t want to expand their family.
El Moussa, 40, is dad to two children with ex-wife Christina Haack: daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, 6.
“We’re going to freeze embryos first, go from there and then see what happens,” said Young.
Prior to getting married, Young shared how she often referred to herself as her husband’s kids’ “bonus mom.”
“We’re raising two kids. I’m already a mommy. So I’m like, well, why not have just one more?” she also said on the show.
