Stephanie Coker speaks about IVF journey, husband’s contribution

Nollywood actress Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun, who revealed that she had her child through In Vitro Fertilization, IVF has stated the reason for making her story public.

The actress said she was only able to find very few videos of people she could relate with, discussing the procedure and side effects.

“Initially, I really had no intention of sharing this journey but I kept meeting women who were struggling in one way or the other with fertility. After I got sick with Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome, I felt like I needed to share my experience to help others and also reduce the stigma surrounding infertility,” she stated.

Speaking on the part her husband played in going public with her story, Coker-Aderinokun told Punch, “My husband really encouraged me to share this story. He could see how it would benefit others. And that was why he agreed to be in the series, even though he is very shy. I also had two of my friends who had gone through IVF and they both were really encouraging. My husband really encouraged me and it’s very rare for an African man to do such.”

The former TV presenter also stated that she was successful at her first IVF attempt. Speaking on her experience, she said, “It was not only draining but life-threatening as I developed Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome. My stomach became swollen with fluids. I threw up blood and was aspirated everyday for a week. This syndrome causes the ovaries to swell and become painful. It can become very serious and ultimately life-threatening.”

When the actress shared her story, some people felt that a three-year wait wasn’t enough for her to have tried IVF, but she disagreed, saying, “I don’t agree with that. It is a couple’s decision to embark on that journey, especially if you have been advised by a doctor that it would be the best option for you.”

On why she keeps her family out of the public eye, she said, “My family didn’t sign up to be celebrities or public figures; I did. For that reason, I try to protect them because not everyone has thick skin and trolls can be quite nasty.”
