After declaring that she was going to try for more children despite the health risks, Kim Kardashian West has learned that she will never be able to get pregnant again.
On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the star decided to go ahead with surgery to repair her uterus so she could carry a third child.
"Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle," the mum-of-two explained. "I've gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don't feel like it's safe for me to conceive again myself. This surgery is really the one last thing I can try. I want my kids to have siblings and I want to know that I did everything I could to make this happen."
Following the surgery, Kardashian West suffered complications with her bladder that meant she needed a catheter inserted.
Unfortunately, the surgery was not successful, and the reality star was given bad news.
"Not only has this been really painful, but now hearing that I can't carry any more kids, it couldn't get any worse," she said. "I mean, f**k, like I really tried everything and I really want this and it's just not going to happen for me."
After coming to terms with the fact that she can't carry another child, the star has started looking into other options.
"Kanye and I are just going to look into other options and see what we're comfortable with," she said.
Older sister Kourtney Kardashian then brought up the option of a surrogate. "I'm definitely leaning more toward I want to try," Kardashian West replied. "After talking to Kanye, I think that I always knew that surrogacy was an option, but I didn't think it was that realistic of an option. Now, I feel like that's my reality."
She then decided that surrogacy is the only option for her if she wants another sibling for daughter North and son Saint.
