“For all the women out there who are struggling with fertility, I feel it.”
You know Rebel Wilson – actor, comedian and Australian treasure.
“As all good women in their careers out there need to know, if it’s something you’re interested in, it’s a good time to do it,” she said. “How to get to [your] forty is something like even leaving it a little late. It is better to do it a little earlier if you can. “
To prepare for the procedure, she turned 2020 into her “Year of Health”. She explained: “I was thinking about fertility and I had good quality eggs in the bank, so I said, ‘Okay, I’m going to do this, I’m going to be fine. “
Although she has lost more than 60 pounds and developed healthy habits, Rebel has just revealed that she continues to struggle with fertility. In a recent Instagram post, she wrote: “I received bad news today and there was no one to share it with … but I guess I have to tell someone. I feel for all the women out there who are struggling with fertility. “
“The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it doesn’t make sense … but I hope that light will penetrate all the dark clouds,” she concluded.
So far, more than 12,000 people have shared love and sympathy in the comments. Many of Rebel’s friends and fans have shared their own stories of infertility. One woman revealed that she suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and has been “trying for four years”.
This man, who has struggled with fertility all his life, told Buntar, “You are not alone.”
One woman said she had just experienced her third embryo transfer failure.
And many people commented on their stories to share understanding, solidarity and hugs:
Thank you, Rebel, for being so vulnerable and starting this important conversation. Infertility is not discussed enough and I hope it has helped people realize that they are not alone.
