Kourtney Kardashian has revealed she was told by a doctor to drink sperm to help with fertility.

An intriguing choice.

The reality star has been open about her fertility journey with her now-husband, Travis Barker, with the family’s series The Kardashians showing their appointments with fertility doctors.

In the latest instalment, Kourtney got some unusual advice after explaining that the pair are struggling to conceive.

‘Our last egg retrieval was not successful, so our new thing that we’re going to be trying is a Panchakarma cleanse, which is Ayurvedic [alternate medicine], it’s like 3,000 years old, which will get all of the toxins that are deep within our tissue out of our bodies to have better quality eggs,’ she said in a confessional.

‘I did this cleanse 10 years ago, I kept telling Travis about this and it’s the one thing we haven’t tried that he’s heard me talk about.’

The couple then saw Ayurvedic expert Martha, visiting the pair and asking if there are any thyroid issues.

‘I can’t remember what he said, if it was low or high,’ Kourtney said. ‘And then, but he said something, he told us, well he told me that the thing that would help it was drinking his [sperm] like four times a week.’

‘I love this doctor,’ Travis responded.

Kourtney also reassured Travis amid the cleanse.

‘I’m on so much oestrogen right now, on top of not having sex with you, or not having caffeine. If my moods take a turn, that’s why,’ she said.

‘I’m okay with a bad day or a rough day with you than a day without you,’ Travis responded.

The pair have also just tied the knot (for the third time) at a lavish wedding in Italy.

Guests included Kourtney’s mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Kim, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall, while Travis was joined by his bandmate Mark Hoppus and his children, as well as best friends Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox.
