"We were sleeping together at the time, so it was just like, 'Wait, what are we looking at here?!'" the "Vanderpump Rules" star tells TooFab.
Scheana Shay is planning on freezing her eggs -- again.
The 33-year-old "Vanderpump Rules" star confirmed the news to TooFab during a recent interview, explaining that she experienced virtually no discomfort during her first go-around at the end of last year. But Scheana's non-boyfriend, SUR barback Adam Spott, can't say the same.
"I'm going to do a second round of freezing my eggs this summer, so [Lala Kent] will have a sober buddy," Scheana told us while discussing her co-star's recent AA announcement. "We only got nine [eggs last time]. They got 12, but only nine were mature. And down the road, I mean, I don't even know 100 percent that I want kids. As of now, I have no desire to be a single mom. So unless the right guy comes around who wants to step up and be the dad to play with the kids, I'm very good just doing me and traveling the world and stuff. But I want that option."
Scheana told us that if she does decide she wants children, she definitely wants two.
"So that one-in-nine or two-in-nine chance just isn't good enough for me," she said, "so I'm hoping to get at least another nine on the second round because, once fertilized and genetically tested and all of that, you don't know if it's even going to take. I just felt like nine was a very low number, but for how low my AMH levels were, that was a good amount to get."
AMH, or anti-mullerian hormone, is a substance produced by cells in ovarian follicles. Low AMH is an indicator of diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), a decline in the ovaries' ability to produce good-quality eggs.
Scheana maintains that everything about her first experience was "easy," including the 50 days she had to stay away from certain types of carbohydrates, alcohol and weed. When we asked if she felt better as a result of cutting out "all the fun stuff," she let out a laugh and said, "No, I didn't feel any different! That was the thing -- everyone's like, 'You must feel great!' -- and I'm like, 'Not enough to keep it going!' I didn't really feel any different."
Despite the positive outcome, Scheana did admit to having "a little bit of a freak-out at the doctor's office" prior to starting the process.
"It was just a lot to take in going through this by myself, but my mom was at almost every appointment with me," she explained before dropping quite the bomb. "Adam came to an appointment with me and never came back. I've never seen him so uncomfortable."
"It was an ultrasound day, and we were like, 'Wait, there's no baby, right?' And the nurse wasn't answering me!" Scheana told us. "And I'm like, 'Is that an ovary? What is that?! What am I looking at?!' Adam was like, 'I'm here to support you, but I will never come back to the doctor's office with you again.'"
"It was the day after Christmas, and my mom was really sick, but she didn't want me going to this appointment by myself," Scheana explained. "Adam had spent Christmas with us, and the next day, she was like, 'Can you please go with her?' And he was like, 'Yeah, of course!' I didn't tell him it was an ultrasound day, and we were sleeping together at the time, so it was just like, 'Wait, what are we looking at here?!'"
"Vanderpump Rules" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
