Jennifer Aniston opens up and reflects on the ‘challenging’ IVF journey

Jennifer Aniston is opening up about a deeply personal chapter in her life for the first time. The Friends alum recently shared she spent "many years" protecting her fertility journey, which included the process of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). "I was trying to conceive," she told Allure in a cover story published Nov. 9. "It was a challenging road for me." The actress noted that it was during a period that "nobody" was aware of, despite public opinion. "All the years and years and years of speculation... It was really hard," the 53-year-old continued. "I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed." With that said, Jennifer made it clear that she has "zero regrets." "I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, 'Can I? Maybe,'" she shared. The Morning Show star also seemingly reflected on the speculation of her split from ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2005, which she said came with a "narrative that I was just selfish," and "just cared about my career."
