Kourtney Kardashian is sharing some new information about the intense experience she had with IVF prior to getting pregnant with baby Rocky.

The Poosh founder took to her Instagram Stories on Monday (May 27) to answer a follower question about finding the "strength to keep going" after six failed attempts to conceive through in vitro fertilization, per Page Six. Kardashian, who has previously opened up about her difficult journey with IVF, revealed that she herself went through several rounds before stopping.

"I stopped after a year of trying (5 failed IVF cycles, 3 retrievals) my body relaxed and I believed in God's plan for my life," she said.

After ending her IVF journey, the Kardashians star said she focused on her health and faith to lead her through whatever happened next. She and her husband, Travis Barker, eventually conceived and welcomed their son Rocky in November 2023.

"Lots of prayers for whatever was meant to be for us. Also lots of optimizing my health," she wrote, before sharing some inspiration to fans who may be going through something similar. "I know how hard it is to feel like you're not trying, but believing in God's plan and saying your prayers is so powerful. All the best!"

During a recent episode of The Kardashians, she shared more details about her pregnancy, specifically opening up about the "terrifying" reason she had to undergo emergency fetal surgery months before giving birth.
