Little Scheana Shays could be in our future! The Vanderpump Rules star took to Instagram to share a glamorous shot from her hospital bed on Saturday, January 19, and revealed that she was getting her eggs removed and frozen. The reality TV star, 33, captioned the pic, “Today’s the day! Bye bye eggs! For me personally, this has been a very easy, painless and awesome experience. Everyone is different I’m sure.”
While some may go back and forth on what to do, Scheana admitted it was “an easy decision for me to make.”
The Bravo star explained that her AMH levels were “extremely low,” which is a sign of a low number of eggs remaining in the ovaries. Her doctor had recommended the procedure “to have a better chance at a healthy baby down the road.”

Today’s the day! Bye bye eggs! For me personally, this has been a very easy, painless and awesome experience. Everyone is different I’m sure. I am single and no where near trying to have a baby. So for me- yes, this was an easy process and when i say painless, I’m referring to the needles which i have no problem with. My AMH levels were only at .28 and for my age that’s insanely low. That’s disappointing to find out. It was an awesome experience to see everything that goes into freezing eggs. My doctor highly recommended for me to do this to have a better chance at a healthy baby down the road. I have learned so much about fertility and everything that goes into freezing eggs and IVF. You never know what will happen in life. @scrcivf and @drshahinghadir have been so amazing throughout this entire journey! Thank you to all of my super supportive followers who have been thru this and given me advice. If you are in your late twenties/early 30s and able to afford it, I highly recommend this! We retrieved 12 eggs and only got 9 mature of those, so I am already planning a second round this summer bc the more the merrier and better chance of being viable once fertilized down the road! In no way am I trying to minimize those struggling with infertility by saying this is “easy”. I’m not trying to have a baby right now, so this was an easy decision for me to make and thankfully I’m fortunate enough to be able to afford it. My heart goes out to all of the women struggling with infertility. I could likely be in that boat one day which is why I’m being proactive now with such low AMH levels. I’ve also had numerous women reach out thanking me for sharing this bc if they knew sooner that this was an option, maybe they wouldn’t be struggling with infertility issues. This is MY post about MY journey. Thank you all for following me thru this experience … ♥️🥚 and to all of the negative and uneducated comments on this post, check out the next episode of @scheananigans where my DOCTOR answers all of the questions men and women need to know.
And clearly, she’s a fan of the procedure! “ If you are in your late twenties/early 30s and able to afford it, I highly recommend this!” she wrote to followers. “We retrieved 12 eggs and only got 9 mature of those, so I am already planning a second round this summer bc the more the merrier and better chance of being viable once fertilized down the road!”
She did clarify that she’s not “trying to minimize those struggling with infertility by saying this is ‘easy,’” and added, “My heart goes out to all of the women struggling with infertility.”
Scheana seems to believe 40 may be her year, telling Us Weekly, “It would be very selfish of me to not do it now and then be, like, 40 and find the love of my life and be like ‘I should have frozen my eggs when I was 33.’”
The “Good as Gold’’ singer has not found “the one” yet since her split from her costar and husband Mike Shay in 2016. She’s dated Amber Vallerta’s brother and SUR bartender Adam Spott, but the two just did not complete Scheana’s heart. However, she was recently seen at an event with Tom Tom employee Max Boyens but told Us Weekly they are “not serious.”
Mhmm … with Scheana, you just never know. One thing is for sure: The Vanderpump employees seem to always catch her eye!
