Molly-Mae Hague has revealed that her sex life with Tommy Fury was ‘non-existent' due to her 'horrendous' endometriosis symptoms.
The Love Island star turned entrepreneur, 23, made the revelation in her new book, Becoming Molly-Mae, which was released on 9 June.
In the book, she explained that it wasn’t until she got into a relationship with the boxer, also 23, that she realised something was wrong.
She wrote, as per the MailOnline: “Before I was with Tommy, I wasn’t really having sex, so I didn’t really think there were any problems other than my period pains.
“I was suffering horrendous pain - literally feeling like I’d been stabbed in the stomach - just awful. And it was causing me so many issues.”
“Big TMI!” she wrote. “But my sex life just became non-existent: it was just not part of our relationship.”
Endometriosis is a long-term condition that can cause lower back or tummy pain, period pain, as well as pain during or after sex, among other symptoms, according to the NHS.
It affects roughly 10 percent of reproductive age women globally.
Molly-Mae's book has already been a huge success and has topped the Amazon bestseller lists.
The PrettyLittleThing creative director explained last year that her symptoms left her feeling like she’d been ‘hit by a car’.
She said in a YouTube video: “I cannot explain the levels of pain I have experienced through my periods of the last few years.
“I have actually nearly called myself an ambulance on multiple occasions because of the level of pain that I was in."
The influencer said that she even feared she 'wouldn't wake up' because of the intense pain.
She said: “I literally used to lie there and think, 'Am I going to see tomorrow morning?'
"I genuinely used to be in that much pain that I would be fearful I wouldn’t wake up in the morning. It was so so horrendous.
“Tommy never even used to know what to do with me, he would be looking at me like, 'I literally don't know what to do'.”
The 23-year-old added that sex remained ‘painful’ for her.
But despite her difficulty, the couple, who met on the 2019 series of Love Island, have been open about their desire to have children.
Tommy told the Sun: “I want four kids but it’s Molly’s body and she’s the one who has to go through it – but I’ll be there with her every step of the way.
“I’m a big family man and come from a big family too and it’s something we talk about a lot. I don’t think it’s in the far too distant future…”
