Last month on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim, who's been transparent about her fertility struggles, revealed that she might need a hysterectomy (opens in new tab) if she has another child. Since then, she's reportedly been exploring other options, too. According to an Us Weekly (opens in new tab) source, she's even exploring surrogacy and in vitro.

"Kim has been undergoing IVF," the insider says. "It's causing problems with her body." (In a recent KUWTK episode, Kim revealed that she had to undergo a procedure to "clear something out of [her] uterus," and on this week's episode, she'll reveal that an implanted embryo did not take.)

But despite everything, Kim is still optimistic about being a second-time mom, as she explained in a recent interview with Matt Lauer on the TODAY show.

"I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try," she said. "I still have hope, so I'm just going to keep on trying. Never say never."

Brava. Say what you will about the Kardashians, but we can only hope that by making her fertility hurdles public, Kim will provide comfort and support to women fighting similar battles.
