She noted the decision to undergo the procedure was reached after she realised age was catching up with her.

Mrs Obama writes that they met with a counsellor "a handful of times", and she came to realise that she was more "in charge" of her happiness than she had realised.

She reportedly accuses the president of jeopardizing her family's safety.

She said: 'I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them. Her anger stems from Trump spreading the unfounded rumour her husband was born outside the USA and therefore unable to be President. Millions of women around the world could tell how it pains them to lose a child and she is one of them.

"She also shares intimate details for the first time, for instance, that she and her husband had trouble getting pregnant, suffered a miscarriage, and that both daughters were conceived through in vitro fertilization".

She also thought his picture had a "whiff of geekiness". Being America's first black first lady did not come that easy on her. She agonized over what she feared was a cartoonish, racist image.

The revelations are some of many included in the book from a former first lady who has offered few extensive comments on her White House years.

The former First Lady said she will "never forgive" the President.

She expresses disbelief over how so many women would choose a "misogynist" over Clinton in 2016.

She remembers how her body "buzzed with fury" after seeing the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Mr Trump brags about sexually assaulting women.

She explained: 'If I'd learned anything from the ugliness of the campaign, from the myriad of ways people had sought to write me off as angry or unbecoming, it was that public judgment sweeps in to fill any void.

Mrs Obama launches her promotional tour on Tuesday not at a book shop, but at Chicago's United Centre, where tens of thousands of people have purchased tickets - priced from just under 30 dollars (€26) to thousands of dollars - to attend the event moderated by Oprah Winfrey.
