Kourtney Kardashian is clapping back at an Instagram user who asked if she’s pregnant. While promoting her wellness brand, Lemme, the reality star was posing with a bottle of her new “vaginal health gummy.” The mother of three wore a cropped sweater showing off her midriff.
In the exchange, the fan commented, ” Is she pregnant.” Kourtney, 43, was quick to reply in the comments. She cited her recent IVF journey as the reason for the change in her appearance. She replied, “the after affects of IVF (I only acknowledge this comment bc I do think it’s important to know how IVF affects women’s bodies and it’s not spoken about much) … also are we still asking women if they’re pregnant?”
Kourtney has been open with her fans about her IVF journey. In December, the Poosh founder took to her Instagram Stories to share that she was getting her health back on track after struggling with her IVF treatments while attempting to have a child with her husband, Travis Barker.
Kourtney wrote at the time over a photo of her treadmill: “Finally started getting my energy back 10 months after stopping IVF, for anyone else going through it, it gets better!”
The couple also documented their journey of getting pregnant on their own during season 1 of The Kardashians. At the time, Kourtney claimed that the medication she’d been given for IVF had harmful, lasting side effects.
“The medication that they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause, literally into menopause,” Kourtney told her mom, Kris Jenner, adding that the medication “put me into depression.”
Kourtney said of the IVF medication, “I think because I’m so clean and careful with what I put into my body, it’s having the complete opposite reaction and is working as a contraceptive instead of helping us.” Kourtney further described that the medication makes her feel “super moody and hormonal. Like, I’m a lunatic half the time.”
The couple announced in September that they had paused their IVF journey for the time being.
