Khloé Kardashian says her wacky hormones and bad timing has prevented her from getting pregnant with husband Lamar Odom’s baby.

The 28-year-old has been through a public struggle to bear a child, addressing it in her reality TV shows and various media interviews.

Khloé insists she doesn’t have infertility issues. Instead she has just been too busy to focus on having a baby.

“It’s more about my hormones being off,” she told Redbook magazine. “I was taking hormone shots to stabilise them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor—you can do them yourself, but I couldn’t.”

Khloé explained that jetting between recording a programme in Miami, Florida and seeing her basketball star husband Lamar Odom has put immense pressure on her medical visits.

The constant travelling has meant she missed several important steps to help her conceive.

“And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing,” she continued. “And if I’m in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It’s a commitment and I don’t mind doing it, but the timing was just off.”

The businesswoman first wanted to reproduce two years ago and couldn’t get to grips with why it was so difficult.

Her fellow Kardashian sisters Kourtney and Kim have both been pregnant and her mother Kris Jenner has a large brood.

“I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body,” she confessed. “It was hard for me to understand what was happening because my mum had six kids, and Kourtney got pregnant quickly. People assume I’m desperate for a baby. And yes, I would love to have a baby.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
