Kim Kardashian's waist training affecting her chances to get pregnant?
Kim Kardashian West admits she is struggling to get pregnant again.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who has 18-month-old daughter North with rapper husband Kanye West, is desperate to have another baby, but says "it's been more challenging" than she thought it would be.
The brunette beauty said: "It's been more challenging to get pregnant the second time around."
But we also know how obsessed she is with waist training.
Now according to one expert, the reality star's regular use of a corset to shrink her stomach could be affecting her fertility.
Dr Sue Decotiis tells Daily Mail that the practice of wearing a waist trainer or corset over periods to change ones shape is 'not healthy.'
She claims waist training does not reduce the amount of body fat. The small waist circumference may have been a result of the highly constricting corset that reduced blood flow to the tissues and causing atrophy of these tissues.
She adds that for pregnancy, these tissues might not be able to expand to accommodate a developing fetus.
Kim began waist training last August and regularly shares selfies of herself wearing a corset.
She loves to squeeze into the corset each time she is going out for a shoot or wants to let go of that flab.
Kim Kardashian recently strapped the waist trainer around her waist before her make up started and we saw the difference during the glamourous photo shoot.
The 34-year-old wore a crop top flaunting her flat stomach and black pants. The brightly coloured corsets are designed to whittle down wearers waistlines over time with prolonged usage.
