Kourtney Kardashian Admits Going Through IVF Is Making Her ‘A Lunatic Half The Time’

Kourtney Kardashian is sharing her experience with in vitro fertilization (IVF) alongside her fiancé Travis Barker.

It was revealed in the full-length trailer of The Kardashians how the two want a child.

And now, Kourtney is sharing her and Travis’s experience trying for a baby of their own.

When sitting down with her mom, Kris Jenner, for a candid chat, the 43-year-old reveals that she’s found her fertility doctors’ visits to be “awful.”

“How are your doctors going?” Kris asks. “Awful,” Kourtney replies, before explaining in a confessional the details of her and Travis’s IVF journey so far.

“Travis and I want to have a baby, and so my doctor took us down this road of doing IVF,” she says. “It hasn’t been the most amazing experience.”

“The medication they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause,” she tells Kris. “Literally into menopause.”

Kourtney reveals that the medication she’s been taking has seemingly worked “as a contraceptive.”

“I think because I’m so clean and careful with what I put into my body it’s just having the complete opposite reaction and is working as a contraceptive instead of helping us,” Kourtney says. While research has proven that diet and exercise can impact the way in which IVF medication works, there is no scientific evidence that eating clean makes the treatment ineffective.

Kourtney goes on to tell Kris that the medication caused her to feel depressed.

“The medication basically put me into depression,” she says. Kris responds by saying, “I’ve never seen you happier, so the depression thing surprised me.”

“And I have everything in the world to be happy about. I just feel a little bit off and not like myself,” Kourtney replies, adding that she’s “super moody and hormonal” and “a lunatic half the time.”
