Gabrielle Union opened up to People magazine about her infertility and failed IVF treatments.
“I have had eight or nine miscarriages. For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.” – Gabrielle Union
When it comes to people asking her if she wants kids, Gaby finds the question to be harmful and frustrating.
“For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?’” she says. A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.” – Gabrielle Union
The actor will be sharing more about her struggles in her new memoir, We’re Going to Need More Wine.
