"So I do have follicles that are growing – I have a total of five, but one of them looks like it's not going to be mature enough to extract. So we have two that are strong, one that is still growing, and another one that is still growing, so I have four that are looking decent," the Netflix star continued.

"Not the best number, so I'm going to talk to my doctor a little later and see if it's even worth extracting to create the embryo or if we are going to have to do another round, which, obviously it's not the most fun thing to go through, so I'm really hoping for some good news later when I talk to my doctor," Young concluded.

On Jan. 5, the real estate agent discussed the process of freezing her eggs, sharing in an Instagram Story that "things are happening faster" than she thought.

In an Instagram post in December, Young shared a video of herself speaking honestly about her fertility journey, explaining in the caption her decision to be open with her followers about it.

"Sharing my journey was something I struggled with because every women's experience is so different and I know some women go through a lot harder things but I decided I wanted to be vulnerable and real with you guys," she wrote in part.

Added Young: "This is something I think can be really empowering. I want to be strong for other women out there and help guide them through this because it's a subject that's not talked about enough. So I'll be sharing bits and pieces of my journey and I hope you all can benefit from it and feel empowered by it 💗"
