Kourtney Kardashian has spoken candidly about the horrific experience she’s had with IVF treatment and how medication has caused her to gain weight, feel depressed and “put me through menopause.”

The eldest of the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney, 43, was already a mother to sons Mason and Reign and daughter Penelope, all with former partner Scott Disick, when she and fiancé Travis Barker decided to have a child together.

But sadly, the couple’s journey to the baby hasn’t quite gone according to plan.

In a clip from the new family series The Kardashians, now streaming on Hulu, Kourtney tells her mom, Kris Jenner, that her appointments with her doctor were “terrible.”

“Travis and I want a baby,” she said. “And so my doctor put us on this path of doing IVF and so, it wasn’t the most amazing experience.

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

“The meds they gave me put me into menopause…literally menopause,” she added. “I think because I’m so clean and careful with what I put into my body, it’s exactly like I’m having the opposite reaction and working as a contraceptive instead of helping us.”

Kourtney goes on to say that while she has “everything in the world to be happy about,” her IVF drugs have made her feel bad.

“I just feel a little off and not like myself. Super moody and hormonal like I’m crazy half the time,” she said.

The clip comes just a fortnight after Kourtney’s sister Kim Kardashian spoke to Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show and confirmed that the new series from The Kardashians would chronicle Kourtney and Travis’ journey together as a couple and their search for a baby.

It hasn’t been an easy road for the couple in love and their quest to conceive – but they continue to support each other



“I think when you find love you can’t live without, there’s still a chance [to have a baby together] — she’s in her early 40s — I think they’re dying to see what life with a baby would be like,” Kim said on the show.

“[In the series]they share their whole story and have been super open and i think people really want to see how cute they are and how much they make out!”

Kourtney and Travis have been reported to be a couple since 2018 but confirmed their relationship in January 2021

Kourtney and Travis were friends for years before dating and were first spotted dining together back in 2018, though the couple didn’t confirm their relationship until January 2021.

Travis, a musician and drummer for the rock band Blink-182, proposed to Kourtney in October 2021 and she confirmed their engagement via Instagram, sharing a photo of her with her engagement ring with the simple caption, “Forever.”

The final parts of their relationship journey, including Kourtney’s IVF treatments, were filmed for the Hulu series The Kardashians, which now airs on Hulu and Disney+.

What is IVF?

Kourtney and Travis couldn’t conceive without help – so they decided to get IVF treatment



The NHS explains that IVF, which stands for In Vitro Fertilization, is one of several techniques available to help people with fertility problems have a baby.

During IVF, an egg is removed from the woman’s ovaries and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory, the NHS says. The fertilized egg, called an embryo, is then returned to the woman’s uterus to grow and develop.

IVF can be performed using a woman’s own eggs and her partner’s sperm, or using donor eggs and sperm.

Typically, IVF in the UK is offered to women under the age of 43 who have been trying to conceive through regular unprotected sex for two years, or women who have had 12 cycles of artificial insemination, at least six cycles of which have been using a method called intrauterine insemination.

The NHS lists several risks of IVF treatment, including side effects from the medicines used during treatment, such as hot flashes and headaches, the risk of multiple births (e.g. twins or triplets) which can be dangerous for the mother and children who have the Risk of ectopic pregnancy (where the embryo implants in the fallopian tubes rather than the uterus) and risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) (where the ovaries overreact to the drugs used during IVF).
