Aisha Taylor, a co-host of "The Talk," has shared for the first time that she and her husband of 11 years have struggled to conceive a child and have undergone in vitro fertilization treatments in hopes of becoming pregnant.  PEOPLE.com has more:

"We went through the process. There are all these shots, they make your body crazy, they make you emotional, they hurt. I was getting shots every day. I wasn't telling you guys — my husband and I were going through this at home together. He hated giving me the shots, he probably cried more than I did," Tyler, 42, told her co-hosts.

"After going through a lot of procedures and spending a lot of money ... the doctor said, 'Look, based on what we're seeing here, I just don't think this is going to happen for you.'"

Tearing up she continued, "The hardest part is I really love my husband — he's such a good person and he would be such a great father. But we just decided it wasn't worth it to go through that and so we decided to stop. It was better to not go through that torture."

Tyler's co-hosts, who hadn't not known about her issues, were in tears as she told them about her struggle to become a mom. But Tyler, who says she loves kids, admitted that she hasn't given up her baby dream completely.

"I love the idea of adoption," she admitted when Sara Gilbert asked her about exploring other avenues. "But I feel like this is such a fresh wound that I want to let it heal for a while before I think about what we could do."
