Kourtney Kardashian reveals IVF with Travis Barker “hasn’t been the most amazing experience”

She also claimed the treatment caused her to experience symptoms of menopause.

Kourtney Kardashian has revealed she and her fiancé Travis Barker are undergoing IVF, stating that it “hasn’t been the most amazing experience”.

In a trailer for the Kardashians‘ new reality show released on Monday, the mum-of-three confirmed months-long suspicions the couple are trying for a baby. Though the pair were shown consulting with doctors and seemingly undergoing tests in the teaser, it wasn’t made clear how far along in their fertility journey they are.

However, in another clip leaked after the initial trailer dropped (only to be deleted again), Kourtney revealed she and the Blink-182 drummer have been undergoing IVF in hopes of conceiving a child together.

Describing the less-than-pleasant experience, the eldest Kardashian sister said: “Travis and I want to have a baby, and so my doctor took us down this road of doing IVF. And it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.”

The clip then shows a scene in which Kourtney opened up to momager Kris Jenner about how the treatment has caused her to gain weight, which didn’t go unnoticed on social media.

“Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant! Kourtney’s pregnant! Kourtney’s gained so much weight!’ and I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through,” she said.

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

Shocked, Kris asked: “Based off of what? A drug?” to which Kourtney replied, “yes.”

The initial trailer saw the Poosh founder and Travis, who got engaged in October, speaking to a medic who told them to “put the sample in this cup” and then switch off their mics.

No doubt the new show will explore the couple’s journey to marriage and parenthood in greater detail when it drops next month (on Hulu in the US, or Disney+ on this side of the Atlantic).
