In an interview with Bossip, Remy Ma opens up about her first miscarriage at age 17, her most miscarriage last year, and her fertility struggles because of these two incidents. 

“On ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ me and my husband chose to share our story with our loss,” Remy told the news outlet. "I actually had an ectopic pregnancy, where you’re pregnant, but it’s not in the womb. It’s happening in your fallopian tubes, which are not designed to carry a baby.”

Then, she revealed that she suffered from her first miscarriage when was a teenager. “I didn’t even know I was pregnant,” she said. “They did a tubal ligation, where they took a tube out, but I still had one fallopian tube left, and they said it would be hard for me to have a baby.”

Thankfully, that didn't stop her from having her son, Jayson, who's now 16 years old. However last year, Remy's third pregnancy didn't go as well. Her unborn baby burst her remaining tube. Now, the rapper can't carry children herself. So, IVF is the only choice she now has to have children of her own.

“So many women have been through the same thing, and I realized that in-vitro is minimum $15,000 or $20,000, easily,” Remy said. “There’s no cheaper route. I have the money, so I didn’t think about it, but the average woman that this happens to doesn’t have that kind of money.”

She added: “So, a girl like me, who wasn’t blessed to become a rapper or have the salary that I have, if this happens to her, she has to go through life without having any children. And I think it’s so crazy that you can use your health insurance, not to have a child, but to have an abortion. I don’t understand that.”
