KAILYN Lowry has opened up about her egg retrieval process as she prepares for IVF.
The Teen Mom 2 star previously admitted to keeping her options open for more children in the future.
Kailyn, 29, visited the gynecologist today and she updated her fans on her health for a potential fifth baby.
“So during this appointment [the doctor] was able to do what she had to do and then she let me know that I was scheduled for my sono next week, which is something they do with the uterus.
“This is where they’re going to check my uterus because of my super heavy bleeding,” she explained.
“I’ve had super super super heavy periods so they’re going to check to see if there’s anything abnormal going on in my uterus.”
The reality star went on to explain her difficulties with PCOS, though she didn’t experience complications with infertility as some women do.
“After my sono next week I’ll be curious to know if my heavy bleeding is related to PCOS or if it’s related to something else.
“I’ll be curious to know what stuff I find out next week and how I’ll respond to ovulation meds,” she closed.
Kailyn, who already has four sons, Isaac, 11, Lincoln, seven, Lux, three, and eight-month-old Creed, is leaving the door open for more children in the future.

The TV personality told Us Weekly: “I don’t have any intentions any time soon to have more children, but I’m going through IVF and egg retrievals so that I can potentially have the chance in the future, if that’s what I want.
“You know, my kids are getting older,” she admitted, saying she was returning to “independence and kind of getting [her] time back.
“So, definitely no kids. No more kids [are] in my near future,” the young mom clarified.
After prompted about the possibility, she added: “Maybe. Maybe not. We’ll see.”
She worried it was ‘cancer’[/caption]
Kailyn’s decision to go through IVF and egg retrieval came after she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome.
The Teen Mom star admitted thinking she had “cancer” when they found cysts on her ovaries.
“I was having such heavy periods,” she revealed on her Coffee Convos podcast in March.
“I was bleeding through three and four changes of clothes per day during my period and I would bleed through my mattress. I would bleed through everything.”

An ultrasound showed the cysts, leading the MTV star to Google her symptoms.
“I was, like, crying, ‘I don’t want to die. I literally cried myself to sleep,” she remembered.
Kailyn has begun taking medication to treat the syndrome and is trying to “manage” the “insane side effects”.
In April the podcast host ensured fans that she has no plans to have more kids because Creed is such a fussy baby.

“Creed is the reason why I would have no more children,” she reasoned.

“I’m literally freezing my eggs for the sole reason if I end up with someone who doesn’t have children of their own and wants children. I would consider it because it would literally be a 50/50 situation.”
Kailyn has had issues with co-parenting with her three baby daddies, and previously shared that she “doesn’t receive child support at all” from any of them.
