Taylor Hill is recounting a difficult moment in her life.

The model, 28, appeared on the June 17 episode of Jay Shetty's podcast On Purpose, where she shared that she experienced a miscarriage three years ago when she became pregnant while using an IUD.

"About three years ago, I had a miscarriage," Hill said. "It was a really strange circumstance under which I had my miscarriage. I had an IUD. I had it for about three years — so I wasn't actively trying to get pregnant. I wasn't in the headspace at all to be pregnant."

"It can happen, of course. It happened to me," Hill says of getting pregnant while having an IUD in. According to Planned Parenthood, although fewer than 1 out of 100 people who use IUDs will get pregnant each year, it is still possible.

Although Hill was unsure about being pregnant at first, she continued on with the pregnancy after learning it wasn't ectopic.

"My pregnancy was in my uterus, it was viable and technically healthy," she revealed. "The circumstances and environment on which I conceived was a bit of a turbulent environment."

"My doctor said, 'We don't really know what's going to happen here because you conceived in an environment where your body is telling you [that] you shouldn't be pregnant because of the IUD and also if we can remove it, we're changing the environment. We don't know, 50/50 on whether you're going to carry this out," she said.

As she went through her pregnancy, Hill began to get more and more excited.

"I was trying to stay as neutral as I possibly could, but it was difficult. I was shocked. I was confused. I was feeling fear. But at the same time, I'm gonna marry this person," Hill says of her now-husband Daniel Fryer. "I love this person. I want to have a family with this person. I'm 25, that's still young but I feel somewhat ready if I was to have a child."

About nine weeks into the pregnancy, Hill said she started to experience spotting, and then a week later a miscarriage began.

"It starts happening and I'm alone in my house," Hill recalled. "I call my husband and I'm just devastated because I know this is about to happen to me. We're both crying. And I could just tell he was so heartbroken that he couldn't be there. I think it was really painful for him, too."

Hill has been reflecting on her miscarriage after losing her dog, Tate, last July, admitting that she still has complex feelings about the experience.

"It was so strange and just all the things. It was really just — two things can be true at once. Even with some time and space and some perspective. Relief. Wow, the timing wasn't right," Hill says. "Everything happens for a reason. I wasn't ready to be a mother. I wasn't ready to have a child."

But although that can be true, Hill said she was still upset about the situation.

"I'm absolutely devastated that I'm not a mother and I don't have a child," Hill shares. "That makes no sense. How can you feel both of those things? I don't know. I don't know how to talk about this. How do I make this make sense? In terms of miscarriages, sometimes they don't make sense."
