Stephanie Coker opens up on her battle with PCOS, failed IVF

Media personality and actress, Stephanie Coker Aderinokun opens up on her life-threatening struggle with PCOS and IVF, causing her to lose her baby.

In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, she revealed that she nearly took her own life after her second round of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) failed after spending over $40,000 and travelled to Los Angeles for the procedure.

Following the failed IVF, she recounted how she confided in a friend, expressing her feeling that the baby had rejected her.

Stephanie Coker explained that IVF was her only option due to her diagnosis of PCOS, a condition that caused her to bleed excessively to the point of fainting and being rushed to the hospital last year. She described being confined to a wheelchair and, at one point, having to sleep outside in the garden because of severe internal heat.

Adding to her difficulties, that same year, her husband lost his election amid intense public scrutiny.

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

“I got pregnant on the first IVF, the second one failed and actually I was standing in front of a car just to let the car hit me,” she said partly.
