Opening up about infertility isn’t always easy, but leave it to comedian and mom Amy Schumer to be honest and candid about the struggle so many women go through.

Schumer recently shared a raw photo of her bare belly, bruised from IVF treatment, which she revealed she is currently undergoing. “I’m a week into IVF and feeling really run down and emotional,” Schumer wrote in the post. She added, “We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling.”

In addition to being open about her experience, Schumer asks her followers for help, something that can also be difficult for many women. “If anyone went through it and if you have any advice or wouldn’t mind sharing your experience with me please do,” she writes, “My number is in my bio.”

If you’ve got any advice or you just want to cheer Schumer on like thousands of her followers have with likes and comments, you can add your two cents to her post here.
