She continued: ‘It hurts that my body won’t do what I want it to. I’m bloody over it.

‘Something that is seemingly so easy for so many, feels impossible for us. It’s infuriating. The endless calls and the blood tests and internals.’ 

Tanya went on to talk about the guilt which comes with ‘harassing’ doctors because she has to ‘keep on them’ when they’re busy.

She said she’s ‘not 100% certain they know or care what’s going on with’ her since they deal with so many patients every day. 

‘I’m exhausted. Burnt out. I’m not burnt out by work but by the fatigue of [trying to conceive]. It’s impossibly hard,’ she said. 

‘You want to just get up and do it. Like work, but you get fed up from trying and getting nothing from it.

‘Plus, I’ve been doing that for years and it comes to a point of frustration that’s hard to bare. I feel like I’m between two worlds. Where I want to be and where I am.’

Tanya opened up to Mamamia earlier this year about her ‘aggressive’ case of endometriosis, a painful disorder in which the inner lining of the uterus grows on the outside of female reproductive organs. 

She said it was so bad it had grown over her bladder and she would need surgery to get the extra tissue out. 

‘And then it’ll be a couple of months and then we can try naturally again, or we’ll have to go down the IVF path,’ she continued.

Tanya then joked if nothing worked she would ‘steal a baby from Coles.’ 

Last year, the reality TV star got engaged to her partner Thomas after they had been dating for six years. 

She shared a picture of her large ring to Instagram with the caption: ‘I’m going to be the least subtle bride alive.’
