Khloe Kardashian's Secret IVF Fertility Treatment
a blog by Claire, January 6, 2013
An outrageous rumor is circulating the internet that Khloe Kardashian is sneaking in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments behind husband, Lamar Odom’s back. Can you imagine?
If this is true, she and Lamar have greater problems than helicopter mom, Kris Jenner, and attention-seeking sisters, Kim and Kourtney… where in the world is she getting the sperm from?
In a traditional IVF cycle, the woman undergoes ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval. The eggs are fertilized with sperm and grown in a laboratory until they are ready to be transferred back into the woman’s uterus. The sperm is obtained through a semen sample, typically a fresh sample from the partner, though frozen donor sperm is also an option. In this case, we’d assume Lamar’s sperm is being used and he is more than likely aware of this.
The couple had reportedly put fertility treatments on hold (the alleged reasons include focusing on Kardashian’s X-factor gig and Odom’s pressure to perform on the basketball court), but Khloe has always been vocal about her love of family and desire to have children with Odom.
Perhaps Khloe is itching to join the ranks of mommyhood with her sisters. Kim Kardashian, just announced she is pregnant with Kanye West’s baby while Kourtney has two little ones from on-again-off-again-boyfriend-fiancé, Scott Disick.
The rumor of secretive fertility treatments is undoubtedly fueled by the cover of Life and Style magazine which says: “Khloe’s emotional IVF announcement stuns her family, but will this really save her troubled marriage?” Whether Kardashian thinks a baby will save their marriage or not, we find it hard to believe she would be able to pull off an IVF cycle without Lamar being on board.
