Khloe Kardashian and basketball star Lamar Odom have been trying to have a baby for nearly four years and have been unsuccessful. But Khloe insists it’s not because she has infertility issues. The 28-year old blames her hormones and says the timing has been off for the couple.
Kardashian opened up about the sensitive subject in the June 2013 issue of Redbook.
“I do think my difficulty getting pregnant has helped a lot of women,” Khloe tells the magazine. “Do I wish people would quit asking me about it 24/7? Yes, but I don’t regret it.”
Khloe began her baby-making journey in 2008 soon after she and Odom wed. But today she admits that while she wants to be a mom, she isn’t the baby-desperate Kardashian sister that the media’s made her out to be.
“I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body. It was hard for me to understand what was happening because my mom had six kids, and Kourtney got pregnant quickly,” says Khloe. “People assume I’m desperate for a baby. And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I’m 28, and I’ve been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn’t feel incomplete right now.”
Her problem? Khloe discovered she has a hormone imbalance that she just recently figured out how to stabilize.
“I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor — you can do them yourself, but I couldn’t,” says Khloe. As to why she was unsuccessful in the past, she added, “It’s a commitment and I don’t mind doing it, but the timing was just off.”
Only time will tell if there will be another Kardashian baby in the family’s near future.
