I wanted to get hit by a car after my IVF failed - Stephanie Coker

Stephanie Coker spoke during an exclusive chat with Chude Jideonwo, where she explained that her PCOS diagnosis was “life-threatening.”

According to the event host and actress, she was constrained to a wheelchair and was vomiting blood and didn’t see her period for a year.

The filmmaker stated that she felt dejected after her second IVF failed and once contemplated stepping in front of a moving car.

Coker said; “I got pregnant and had my first child on the first IVF but the second one failed and I actually wanted to stand in front of a car and let the car hit me. My daughter wants a sibling. I’m not getting back on that flight with no baby. I called my friend and told her ‘I don’t think the child liked me. It didn’t stay’.”
