Kourtney Kardashian revealed she endured a lot before getting pregnant with son Rocky, whom she shares with husband Travis Barker. During an Instagram Q&A on Monday, May 27, the reality star, 45, was asked about her journey with IVF.

"Had 6 failed IVFs - how did you find the strength to keep going? It's debilitating πŸ˜ͺ," one user asked.

"I stopped after a year of trying (5 failed IVF cycles, 3 retrievals) my body relaxed and I believed in God's plan for my life," the Poosh founder replied. "Lots of prayers for whatever was meant to be for us. Also lots of optimizing my health. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ I know how hard it is to feel like you're not trying, but believing in God's plan and saying your prayers is so powerful. All the best!"

"We stopped doing IVF probably two months before our wedding and so it took a year for all those hormones and chemicals to get out of my system," she continued. "We were not trying whatsoever. I wasn't even checking my ovulation anymore. We decided to put it in God's hands and thought it was just not happening. We were accepting of it and then... God's plan."
