WHEELING, Ill. (CBS) — A Wheeling couple made their TV debut on MTV last night.

WBBM’S Lisa Fielding talked to them about why they decided to share their struggle with infertility on screen.

When Jenna and Kurt Kutzka learned they likely wouldn’t be able to have children naturally they turned to in-vitro fertilization.

“My husband and I tried two-and-a-half years ago and then we found out that through testing that I had problems with my fallopian tubes from endometriosis,” said Jenna Kutska.

Jenna Kutska also learned that many of her friends have done the same thing, but no one was talking about it. So when MTV True Life wanted to document their journey to parenthood, she says she knew she wanted to share their experience.

“I really feel that we did help certain people and just open eyes,” said Kutzka.

Kutzka says overall it was a positive experience and she hopes by sharing her story, it will help others with infertility problems. The episode ran Sunday night.

Kutzka gave birth to a baby boy a week ago.
