Aisha Tyler Shares Her Painful Infertility and IVF Struggle

The women of “The Talk” shocked audiences with their week-long reveal of big secrets.  Sharon Osbourne revealed that she had a fling with Jay Leno years ago and Aisha Tyler revealed her infertility struggle. 

Aisha shared with her co-stars and the audience that she and her husband of 21 years, Jeff Tietjens, had been trying to have a baby and underwent IVF treatments


“We went through the process. There are all these shots, they make your body crazy, they make you emotional, they hurt. I was getting shots every day. I wasn’t telling you guys, my husband and I were going through this at home together. He hated giving me the shots, he probably cried more than I did.  After going through a lot of procedures and spending a lot of money, the doctor said, ‘Look, based on what we’re seeing here, I just don’t think this is going to happen for you.’”

Aisha says they are open to adoption, but she wants to deal with this heartbreaking news first and then move to on and take all options into consideration.  “I feel like this is such a fresh wound that I want to let it heal for a while before I think about what we could do.”
