saying what she means. After Roe v. Wade was overturned, Lauren Conrad opened up about her own difficult fertility struggle with her husband William Tell.
It has been challenging lately. I’ve been trying to find the proper words, and sharing someone else’s didn’t feel quite right,” 36-year-old Conrad stated on Tuesday, June 28 on her Instagram Story.
“I wanted to relate my own experience with reproductive care that saved my life. I experienced an ectopic pregnancy six years ago while trying to start our family.
According to the Mayo Clinic, an ectopic pregnancy, which “occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus,” can endanger the mother’s life if left untreated.
The 42-year-old Tell and the Laguna Beach alum were able to have “two healthy pregnancies” because “quick medical doctors” saved her Fallopian tubes. (The couple’s boys, Charlie, 2, and Liam James, 4, are together.)
Following the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which removed the constitutional right to an abortion and returned authority to the state legislature, the California native made the remarks.
Conrad explained what motivated her to post about her experience on social media:
“Yesterday I read about a woman with this same condition having her ectopic pregnancy rupture — and facing death —

while waiting for treatment because her doctor was on the phone with his lawyer out of fear of losing his medical license, (for using a D&C as a tool to help establish the diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy)” This is tragic, I tell you.
Even though the fashion designer acknowledged that discussing abortion “divides us” and is “hard,” she emphasized the value of respectful communication and listening to others, especially when we disagree.
She continued, “I hope someday we will be in a place where every woman has access to the healthcare she needs and the freedom to decide what happens in her own body.
After noting that “many women in my life have had their own experiences with abortion,” the Hills star closed her article by saying, “I am so grateful that in each case they were able to safely receive the healthcare they needed and were free to make their own decisions.”
Conrad exclusively revealed to Us Weekly on Wednesday that she and Tell are “at capacity” and to wear out to consider starting a new family in the near future, despite having “two amazing children.”
“We’re so worn out. It’s alright, she said. “In my opinion, once children arrive, you just have to put in the effort.

Obviously, you have a lot more on your plates, but I also believe that you two now appreciate one another more than before. Will is a fantastic father, which is even better than I anticipated. I now greatly appreciate him on that level.
The couple first connected while they were teenagers and the musician was touring with his band Something Corporate. They later got married in 2014.
Conrad said to Us in 2015, “I met my husband when I was 16 and sitting on stage at one of his shows. “We were paired up on a blind date ten years later.”
