Repost: Heart Evangelista on Her Difficult and Painful IVF Journey

In a rare instance, actress-socialite Heart Evangelista opened up on her in-vitro-fertilization (IVF) journey.

In the September issue of L’Officiel Philippines, Heart described the process as “one of the toughest, challenging times” of her life.

“With IVF, they inject you with fertility hormones. It was very difficult and painful. I had three injections a day over a two-week process,” the 37-year-old said. “After harvesting and the processes that came after, they were able to gather the perfect boy and the perfect girl.”

Note that Heart was supposed to have twins in 2018 but lost them.

This allowed Heart a realization.

She shared, “It made me realize, am I ready for a child?”

“I actually have a baby boy and a baby girl waiting for me, but I’m really at this stage in my life where (I ask myself): ‘Do I want a child because I want a child?’ or ‘Do I want a child because the environment or culture dictates that I should have a child?’”

In any case, she related how it’s liberating to decide according to what she wants.

“That has changed me dramatically,” she maintained.

Heart reiterated having a choice is good.

And she suggests other women should take advantage of the same as it “buys them time.”

“Any time they decide on having a child, the embryo is there. Whether you decide immediately or five years from now, there is no deadline. Also, the process is available in the Philippines and not just abroad,” she pointed out.

In the same interview, Heart also talked about her husband Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero and how supportive he is regarding the whole process.

“Chiz is a really good guy though we’re very different because he’s very conservative and I’m also a little bit more modern. Perhaps it’s because of our age gap. But what I like about him is he tries. He tries to be as supportive as he can be,” she said.

Off late, Heart has been making headlines in relation to her rumored split with Chiz.

    1. Wow! Pala desisyon yarn? Di po pwedeng anak ng anak Teh! May kaakibat na malaking responsibilidad after ka mag anak! Ghaaad! Over populated na tayo pasalamat ka sa mga taong ayaw na magka anak. At least di madadagdagan diapers na ibabasura.haha

    2. A baby is a blessing but also a big responsibility. Kudos to Heart for being responsible.

    3. That is called responsible parenting. You decide when you are ready, Emotionally, physically, financially. A baby will always be a blessing pero a lot of factors to consider.

    4. Yan problema dito eh - hindi mo naman kasi maibabalik yung bata pag pinanganak mo na. Life long responsibility yan. Responsibilidad ng magulang suportahan ang anak at palakihin into a productive, goof person. Hindi lang yan basta basta. Tama lang na pinagiisipan kasi hindi naman lahat ay fit maging magulang.

    7. Tapos kung mag aanak sya ngayon at lagi nman syang magtatravel, ibabash pa rin sya? Kaloka! Tih, hindi ka lang pwedeng financially ready kapag mag anak, kaylangan din mentally kasi ang hirap ng may anak. Nakakadrain sya minsan, of course happiness ang anak pero hindi sa lahat ng oras.

    8. Omg wow sana all ganyan mg isip. Yung hindi mo ikuquestion ang sarili mo kung kaya mo ba? Kaya ba ng katawan mo? Kaya ba ng time mo? Kaya mo ba bawasan ang oras ng trabaho which means pati sahod? Ready ka na ba to give up your freedom? Your sleep? Wala pa akong anak pero pagod na pagod na ako after work. Di ko nlng pgiisipan basta mg-anak nlng bahala na si batman?

    12. 11:45 I agree with your statement pero as for the physical part, hindi all the time nasa babae ang decision. Considering age is a major factor sa pagbubuntis. Once you reach a certain age, almost impossible ng mabuntis ang babae. In Heart's case, medyo malapit na sya sa limit pero good thing na she chose to preserve her eggs para anytime na ready na sya magka-anak, she can go ahead na.

    16. Kaya hindi ako nagtataka na overpopulated pilipinas dahil sa mga ganitong klaseng pagiisip ni 11:00. Yung tipong anak lng ng anak pero hindi iniisip kung kaya ba ang responsibilidad na magbigay ng de kalidad na buhay para sa bata, hindi lang basta literal na buhayin.

    17. Si 11:00PM yung isa kung hindi eh kamag anak nung nga batang babae na nabuntis sa inuman tas iniwan ng nakabuntis tas umasa sa magulang, hindi na nag aral tas proud single mom sa social media kase evey baby is a blessing daw.. tapos imbes magpadede o magpalit ng diaper ng anak, post lang ng post sa social media ng filtered photo nya na labas ang cleavage dahil naghahanap ng jowa at inuman na pupuntahan..

    19. Hmm, this is a topic with many layers. Lots of societal problems would be solved if people don't just reproduce without any thought, but at the same time, nothing can prepare you for parenting. Not even financial stability nor age/maturity. Narealize ko yan since I started working with special needs children. Iba iba ang parents, iba iba din ang anak, yet nothing, nothing prepares people for parenting. You really have to be adaptable, be self-sacrificing, and be humble/accepting of mistakes, cause once you are a parent you will make a lot of mistakes. No parenting books nor money could help usually sa nakita ko. And once you somewhat gain some confidence that you are finding your footing, your next child comes out a completely different person from the first, and so on. This might be a pessimistic view, but based on what I've witness, mahirap talaga yung topic na to. It's a huge responsibility.

    20. Hala sya. Oo babies are blessing at the same time responsibility and commitment. Pero yung iba nagaanak just for the sake, investment at future retirement plan. Nakakadiri ung mga ganung magisip na tao.

    21. How condescending can you be? I want a child but maybe my present condition won't let me do that anymore since I got 1 ovary removed. So please spare me from your arrogant comment and bear 100 children for all I care.

    22. 11:00, thank God at marami nang HINDI tulad mong napaka backward mag isip! Not everyone is meant to parent a child, not everyone wants to ba a parent and it doesn't make them any lesser than those with children. Andaming anak ng anak wala namang karapatan-either walang pang buhay sa bata o sadyang hindi mabuting magulang.

    3. Ako umabot na sa $71k + (US) ang gasto. After 1 failed, I finally have 1 frozen embryo waiting for transfer. I still have to undergo ERA test (biopsy) to determine if my uterine wall is ready to receive transfer. So yeah, going through IVF is not maarte, you have to decide when are you going to be ready, physically, emotionally and financially. I truly understand how she feels.

    3. If they separate or have already separated, they can choose to co -parent. If not, maybe Chiz can help financially. If none of the above, I think she has the means naman to raise the child (ofcourse when she is ready emotionally and mentally).

  5. I suffered with infertility too, and I was already in the works for IVF but I asked myself if I really wanted it because of the cost. Unlike Heart, I do not have the kind of money and like any Pinoy, pinapasa-Diyos at sayaw sa Obando na lang. She is fortunate to have a choice. Thankfully I waited because I got pregnant naturally 8 months after our consultation. Fast forward 10 years, I now have 2 girls. Sending baby wishes to Heart and to all TTC couples out there.

Fast forward to today, nag implant kami and kumapit naman, we have a girl now and the other is still waiting for the right time when we are ready again to have a child.
      Not sure now but two years ago it's still not available here and we havd the samples sent outside the country to be tested.

Hindi pa ko ready pero napressure ako ng time, and believe me nakaka 2 na anak na ko pero if you give me this option na i can have a child at a later time, i will take it. yun saya na nararamdaman ko for having a kid, mas matindi ang stress and depression na naramdaman ko kapalit. kanya kanya talaga yan

    20. I had mine at 38 and no, hindi ko wish na sooner sya. I pursued my doctorate degree and beyond and I have to say she came at the right time when I'm stable emotionally and financially. I'm able to give her what she needs both material and time wise because I'm in that stage of my career that I can choose the hours I put in without sacrificing too much of my income. I wouldn't be able to do this is I had a child earlier. Wag lahatin please.

  15. The embryos are not sure babies yet. There’s a big chance they won’t implant. There’s a reason why they try to put in at least 3 embryos at a time for a higher success rate.

    1. If that’s how badly she wanted it she would have had the embryo implanted already at nang magkaalaman na.
      But the woman has other plans and good on her for realizing this.
      I hope we really reach a point in the Philippine society where the end all be all of being a woman is becoming a mother. And being a child-free by choice is respected as a difficult decision and not being looked down on as ‘may kulang’, ‘hindi contented’, ‘not complete’, ‘not a real woman’.

    8. At the back of her mind, she can't take another failed pregnancy. She hides it behind her mask of not wanting to have kids. She does want kids, ayaw na lang nya ng heartbreak ng failure. Plus the fact, that this could be her last chance, so in the end, she just might opt for surrogacy. Still not 100% guarantee ng success.

      Delete
  20. Maybe she changed her mind when her international career became more successful. It would be so difficult to raise kids when she’s always abroad. That’s why she put having kids on hold.

    1. I feel like she's only starting to gain independence and healing from trauma since sobrang strict ng upbringing niya. They always say na pag traumatized ang isang tao they tend to seem/act younger than their actual age, and you can definitely see that in her. Hindi din surprising kung hiwalay na sila ni C cause yung dynamics nila hindi husband/wife. Parang he's kind of a parent din. She definitely needed some more time to find herself kumpara sa ibang ka-age niya, since her life has been very sheltered. I think she realized this once her life took a new turn and she is getting all these new experiences while society kind of gave her the impression na she'd slow down once she reaches a certain age when it comes to her line of work, but here she is peaking at 37. Conflict din yung nangyayari sa career path niya ngayon sa career ng asawa niya, and she doesn't deserve to just live behind his shadow. Finally she's found her niche and is getting recognized for it. Not her fan but I'm happy for women who find their path and their voice. I hope it works out for her.

    1. Actually the decision is for the woman and the woman alone kaya dapat pagkasunduan to bago pa ikasal. Hindi yung lalake ang magdadala ng bata. He should support the woman with whatever decision she has over her body. Kung di sila same ng gusto then wag ikasal.

  23. I’m 36 and I thought I also wanted a child. Then nagisip talaga ako then realized I was just pressured because I am of this age and married. I like to travel a lot with my husband, I am still selfish, I like to work and live according to my schedule, I have anger management issues, I also have extreme anxiety and I thought with all these issues and wih my current lifestyle, Am I truly ready to have children? So we decided I’ll work on myself muna before even thinking of having children. We might do IVF later if We can’t do naturally. And if it will fail, then we will adopt. Kesa naman I get pregnant now because of my age then all these issues of mine won’t make me a fit mother. I’d rather be a mother when ready. So I admire Heart for putting this out in the open. It’s almost taboo topic in the Philippines.

  24. Paanong naging maarte c heart don? Desisyon nya sa buhay yan. Ako lagi kong pinag dadasal na sana magkaanak na ako kasi tumatanda na ako. Sa kabutihang palad ibinigay sakin ni God yon. Pero boy ang hirap mag alaga ng anak. Kami lang ng aswa ko d2 sa ibang bansa, kaylangan kong magbawas ng trabaho para may tumingin sa anak ko. Kaylangan mag triple job ni hubby dahil hindi naman tumitigil ang dating ng bills. D ko naman pede ipaalaga sa mga kaybgan ko dahil may work den sila or pag off nila yon lang ang time na pde sila magpahinga. Kung idadaycare ko naman sayang ang ibbayad. Kaya kung ayaw ni heart mag anak kahit marami pa xang pera desisyon nya yan. Lalo na at magbabago ang katawan ng isang babae kahit anong gawing balik ang gawin hndi na maibabalik. But I love my baby boy at gusto ko pa ng isa pa! πŸ˜‚❤

  29. Even if you have embryos in the freezer, there is no guarantee that they will stick kahit pa genetically tested. I had 10 perfect frozen embryos and after 3 failed embryo transfers, 4 nalang ang natira. Before my 1st transfer and confident ko din na I'll have 5+ children pero now I feel defeated and naiinis ako sa sarili ko.

  30. Asian culture is like that talaga ano? Tama naman si heart, it doesnt make her less of a woman dahil wala siyang anak. To me it's not selfishness, but actually it's being smart. Why would you bring a child to this world kung hindi ka naman handa? bakit yung mga nagsasabing you need to have a child blah.. blah... anjan ba sila when the time comes that you need support or help?

  32. I almost had to resort to IVF but I did go through assisted reproduction and conceived via IUI after 5 failed on and off cycles that spanned 2 yrs. It is draining physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. On hindsight, I feel that I wouldn’t have been ready had the baby arrived in those failed cycles because I had many things on my mind, plans I wanted to take and basically things I was busy about. I feel that the baby was given at the right time - when I was ready to really become a mom, ready to settle and take on the big responsibility without feeling like I’m missing out. I suppose the universe is just telling Heart that it’s not yet the right time.

  33. I like heart but its a weird statement.. after going through all that in the end, tsaka siya mapapaisip if she really wants a child. Ivf really is a long and hard process. Been there. Oh well, at least nabiyayaan para rin sya na may embryo. For me, diminished ovarian reserve na ako kaya hirap mag produce ng eggs.

  37. No matter how progressive we are, with women sometimes you really have to sacrifice family over career. I don't think she's at the point where she's ready to give up her success. And it's okay, rather than getting pregnant just because of pressure & regretting it later.

Life doesn’t come with a manual and so does parenting. The trick that worked for me was realizing that raising children is like raising the child in you. I’m glad I still have my parents around when I realized how annoying and difficult of a child I’ve been! Lol

Kaso yung mga boomers talaga yung todo mag judge sa mga taong ayaw o hindi magkaanak. Kesyo walang mag aalaga sayo pagtanda mo, hindi mo mararamdaman yung joy ng pagiging isang ina, kesyo hindi kayo maituturing na pamilya pag wala kayong anak, and so on and so forth.

  41. But these are embryos already. Kaya may gender na. Ang tanong nalang dyan is regardless na whether she has two babies waiting, yun pag transfer nyan kung magiging successful. Have you all watched yun Bling Empire ni Christine tiu, she has two embryos pa na naka freeze, but how her body will respond is the bigger question, kaya ang naging next step nya was to consider surrogacy. So I hope heart will not reach this stage wherein. Complicated actually ng mga egg freezing and sobrang pa woke ng mga kababaihan ngayon. Make it simple, wag mag anak kung ayaw magkaanak. Period.
