We got 1 normal embryo: Amy Schumer shares her IVF story

Amy Schumer has opened up about her IVF journey in a beautifully honest post. The mum has been praised for speaking so truthfully about her experience.

She wrote: “IVF went like this for us. They retrieved 35 eggs from me. Not bad for the old gal right? Then 26 fertilized! Whoah right?”

“For all of those we got 1 normal embryo from that and 2 low level mosaic (mosaic means there are some abnormal cells but can still lead to a healthy baby) So we feel lucky we got 1!” she shared.

“But what a drop off right? Anyway I have so appreciated everyone sharing their Ivf stories with me. They made me feel empowered and supported. So I wanted to tell you how mine went down” the mum explained.

The I Feel Pretty star stressed that IVF is a draining and overwhelming process that so many women must face. “So many women go through many rounds of ivf which is painful and mentally gruelling. I heard from hundreds of women about their miscarriages and struggles and also many hopeful stories about how after rounds and rounds of ivf it worked!”
