Kourtney Kardashian said a doctor told her to drink Travis Barker's semen "four times a week."
She said he told her it would help with her thyroid levels. There is no medical evidence to support that claim.
It's unclear if the couple, who have been chronicling their infertility journey on camera, followed the advice.
While speaking about her fertility journey on Thursday's episode of "The Kardashians," Kourtney Kardashian said a doctor told her to drink now-husband Travis Barker's semen "four times a week" to increase their chances of conception — flawed advice that has no basis in medicine.
Kardashian said the doctor, who she did not identify, claimed doing so would "improve" her thyroid levels. "I can't remember what he said, if it was low or high," the Poosh founder admitted.
"Well, he told me that the thing that would help it was drinking his cum like four times a week," she added, pointing to Barker. "Love this doctor," Barker said.
The couple didn't confirm if they tried following the doctor's advice, but they described their experience with him in the past tense, as they discussed new approaches with Martha Soffer, an Ayurvedic medicine practitioner.
Drinking semen is not part of a fertility plan that would be recommended by an Ayurvedic medicine practitioner. While Kardashian is a big promoter of Ayurveda for wellness, the practice is not a typical detox that people can pick and choose from to boost their health; it is a longterm approach to balance in all aspects of your life.
In Thursday's episode, called "Where I've Been and Where I Wanna Go," Kardashian detailed their "pre-cleanse."
"We've had no caffeine, no alcohol, no sex, no working out, no sugar. We feel amazing," she said.
Cameras followed Barker and Kardashian to Soffer's spa where they each received personalized treatments for seven consecutive days, Kardashian explained.
Kardashian took a ginger foot bath to bring "warmth to the womb" to help prepare for the baby, Soffer said. We also saw Barker receive a personalized massage and struggle to meditate.
Kardashian opened up to Entertainment Weekly about her journey with IVF in April 2022.
"It's a beautiful thing that we'd love to have happen, but the journey is a bit hard for any woman who went on it," she said.
