‘Reality for an IVF warrior’: Rhian Sugden posts candid tears as she navigates ‘difficult’ Mother’s Day amid fertility struggles

On Sunday, Rhian Sugden posted a candid photo to her Instagram Story as she recounted experiencing a “difficult” Mother’s Day amid her fertility struggles.

The glamorous model, 36, was in tears in a selfie uploaded to her social media as she wrote in the caption: ‘The Reality of Mother’s Day for an IVF Warrior. It’s hard.’

She announced her decision to start the in vitro fertilization process in 2019 after doctors told her she had an egg count of someone at least 13 years her senior.

She has since had four rounds of IVF to try to conceive with husband Oliver Mellor who she married in 2018.

In her Mother’s Day snap, she lay in bed looking at the camera as tears rolled down her cheeks.

In September 2021 Rhian revealed her fourth round of IVF had failed and admitted at the time that she struggled to put on a ‘brave face’. It is unclear if she has attempted a fifth round since.

The beauty showed her vulnerable side as she spoke candidly about feeling down on Instagram amid her difficult fertility journey.

And sharing a glamorous lingerie-clad photo, Rhian provided an update: ‘I’m feeling blue [blue heart emoji]. I’ve had a tough week…

‘For those who have followed my journey… Fourth round of IVF failed ❤️‍but now is the time for me to pick myself up and move on!

“Being in the public eye and trying to keep a brave face on your face harder than it looks, but I’ve done it many times before and will do it again.

“It’s time to put on my best underwear, get back to normal, and get back behind that camera doing what makes me happy!” Kudos to my support network. You are the best! ❤️ #ivfwarrior [pineapple emoji].’ [sic]

In April 2019, Rhian discussed her intention to have IVF after learning she had a “woman over 45” egg count, but added that the procedure only had a rate. of success of “2%”.

Rhian explained: “I was told I might never be a mum – and I’m heartbroken.

“The doctors said I had the egg count of a woman over 45, which means I’m unlikely to conceive one day naturally.

“It also means that the chances of getting pregnant through IVF went down from 30% to 2%, which was pretty devastating to hear.”

In vitro fertilization, known as IVF, is a medical procedure in which a woman has an already fertilized egg inserted into her womb to become pregnant.

It is used when couples are unable to conceive naturally, and a sperm and egg are removed from their bodies and combined in a laboratory before the embryo is inserted into the woman.

Once the embryo is in the uterus, the pregnancy should continue as normal.

The intervention can be done using eggs and sperm from a couple or from donors.

The intervention can be done using eggs and sperm from a couple or from donors.

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines recommend that IVF should be offered on the NHS to women under 43 who have been trying to conceive through regular unprotected sex for two years.

People can also pay for IVF privately, which costs an average of £3,348 for a single cycle, according to figures released in January 2018, and there are no guarantees of success.

The NHS says success rates for women under 35 are around 29%, with the chances of a successful cycle decreasing as they get older.

Around eight million babies are thought to have been born through IVF since the very first case, Britain’s Louise Brown, was born in 1978.

Chances of success

The success rate of IVF depends on the age of the woman undergoing treatment, as well as the cause of infertility (if known).

Young women are more likely to have a successful pregnancy.

IVF is generally not recommended for women over 42, as the chances of a successful pregnancy are considered too low.

Between 2014 and 2016, the percentage of IVF treatments resulting in a live birth was:

29% for women under 35

23% for women aged 35 to 37

15% for women aged 38 to 39

9% for women aged 40 to 42

3% for women aged 43 to 44

2% for women over 44
