Gabrielle Union Recalls Going Undiagnosed by Multiple Doctors in Her IVF Journey
After seeing several doctors in her journey to get pregnant, Gabrielle Union recalled the woman who finally noticed what was affecting her.
L.A.'s Finestactress took listeners down memory lane as she revisited her IVF journey and the struggles along the way to her daughter,Kaavia, being born in 2018.Among those challenges was a medical condition she didn't know she had—and one multiple doctors failed to notice.
"I went undiagnosed through multiple rounds of IVF with different leading doctors in the field around the country," she told Lowes. "Not until the last doctor,Dr. Kelly Baekin California. That first ultrasound, she was like, 'Oh, so, you have Adenomyosis."
While it had never been brought to Union's attention before, Baek could see that it was "really pronounced," as the star recalled. "'I don't know why no one would've noticed this,'" Union remembered the doctor telling her.
"I would've never probably known had I not been on this fertility journey," Union said.Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade's Best Family MomentsIn hindsight, Union had presented symptoms with her menstruation that served as overlooked red flags.
"When Dr. Baek started asking me more questions going back to my periods and what my experience was like with my periods as a younger woman," she said, "I explained that I ended up getting on the pill not for birth control reasons, but because my periods were lasting like a third of the month and I was bleeding like I had been shot in the vagina."
To further complicate things, Union pointed out that adenomyosis "affects your ovarian reserve," and as a result, businesses like fertility clinics might benefit from a patient's lack of awareness."If you're going in and no one's diagnosing you correctly...A lot of places will offer older women or women who have these conditions that have been diagnosed rounds to basically bundle...so you might do... three rounds for this price because you're not going to get a ton of eggs," Union explained. "But, no one's super clear or honest because that affects your business."Read more: E! News »
