Popular actress and media personality, Stephanie Coker Aderinokun, has spoken about her bitter experience with PCOS and IVF.

According to her, she struggled with the emotional toll of failed IVF attempts, spending a significant amount of money and even traveling to Los Angeles, United States, for treatment.

After the heartbreaking loss of her baby, Stephanie opened up to a friend about feeling rejected by the unborn child – she said in an interview with Chude Jidonwo.

Her battle with PCOS, a condition that led to dangerous health complications, made IVF her only viable option for starting a family.

Despite facing immense challenges, including her husband’s failed election, she boasted resilience and strength required to navigate such difficult circumstances.

“I didn’t have my period for a whole year. PCOS made me choose IVF because mine was very severe. My doctor told me mine was life-threatening; I ended up in a wheelchair and was vomiting blood.

“I got pregnant on the first IVF, the second one failed and actually I was standing in front of a car just to let the car hit me,” she said partly.
