Stephanie Coker Opens Up About Her Battle with PCOS and Failed IVF

Must read

Media personality and actress Stephanie Coker Aderinokun has candidly shared her harrowing experience with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), revealing the emotional toll it took on her.

In a heartfelt interview with Chude Jideonwo, Stephanie disclosed that she almost contemplated suicide after her second round of IVF failed. She had spent over $40,000 and traveled to Los Angeles for the procedure. After the failure, she confided in a friend, expressing the deep sense of rejection she felt, as if the baby had rejected her.

Due to her severe PCOS, IVF was her only viable option. The condition caused her to bleed excessively, to the point of fainting and requiring emergency hospitalization last year. She described the ordeal, including being confined to a wheelchair and at times having to sleep outside due to intense internal heat.

Amid these personal health challenges, Stephanie also faced public scrutiny as her husband lost an election, adding to the stress and difficulty of the year.

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

“I got pregnant on the first IVF attempt, but the second one failed. I was in such a dark place that I even stood in front of a car, hoping it would hit me,” she revealed.
