Erin Andrews, a sportscaster, is speaking up about her experience within vitro conception.
Andrews, 43, wrote a personal article on Facebook Bulletin about how she began IVF at the age of 35.
She’s on her eighth round of IVF, which she describes as “a time-consuming and emotionally taxing treatment.”
The FOX Sports NFL sideline reporter, who had cervical cancer and had surgery in 2016, said she’s speaking out now because she works in an industry where women are expected to keep their personal lives private.
Andrews stated, “This time around, I chose to be honest with my show producers about needing to come in a bit later than usual since I was attending daily reproductive appointments.” “And I’m glad I went through with it. Because this is real life, they pushed me to be honest about it. It’s not like I’m going to a hot yoga class or something. I’m attempting to conceive a child. I’m not embarrassed, and I want to be outspoken and open about it.”
Andrews said that while waiting in the waiting area, she gave herself a “Tom Brady pep talk.”
“You’re 43, you’re giving this a chance!” I said. Andrews remarked. “Everyone claimed his arm was dead,” says the narrator. Everyone claimed he couldn’t win a title with a new squad, yet look what happened! It is possible to achieve anything. “Why don’t we try?”
Andrews married Jarret Stoll, a former NHL player, in 2017.
