Heart Evangelista recently opened up about her difficult IVF journey in an interview with L’Officiel Philippines, saying that it was a tough experience for her.
The actress, who suffered from a miscarriage in 2018, shared, “With IVF, they inject you with fertility hormones. It was very difficult and painful. I had three injections a day over a two-week process.”
“After harvesting and the processes that came after, they were able to gather the perfect boy and the perfect girl,” she shared.
Although her embryos are ready, Heart however admitted that she is still deliberating on whether or not she is ready for a baby.
“I actually have a baby boy and a baby girl waiting for me, but I’m really at this stage in my life where [I ask myself], ‘Do I want a child because I want a child?’ or ‘Do I want a child because the environment or culture dictates that I should have a child?'” she said.
She added that the idea of being able to decide what she wants instead of what others want is liberating for her. “Whether you decide immediately or five years from now, there is no deadline. Also, the process is available in the Philippines and not just abroad,” said Heart.
