Molly-Mae Hague has been diagnosed with endometriosis after seeing a private specialist.
The 22-year-old revealed the confirmation while chatting on her latest YouTube video where she brought followers around with her for a “day in her life” while she was busy working on a new shoot for PrettyLittleThing – a brand she’s been an ambassador for since leaving Love Island in 2019.
Following her hectic day, Molly-Mae took to the camera to update her followers on her health, noting that she’s had a few appointments with a special doctor and in her latest one, added that she was squeamish over the thoughts of giving blood, something which she needs to do before having surgery for endometriosis.
Adding that she’s feeling positive about the surgery and doing anything possible to help remove the endometriosis, Molly-Mae added that she knows there’s a high chance it’s something she’ll always live with.
“It’s not a good thing that I have endometriosis, because obviously it can affect fertility and loads of other things, and you can never really cure it.”
Adding that after keyhole surgery she thinks there’s a 40% chance the endometriosis could come back, the influencer continued that she’s willing to do anything in her power to help keep this issue from getting worse.
Endometriosis occurs when cells in the lining of the womb are found elsewhere in the body. Those cells then act as if they are in the womb, breaking down and bleeding each month, however, the blood has nowhere to escape to.
Endometriosis is a common gynaecological condition affecting about 2-10% of women, signs include heavy periods, fatigue, as well as a higher risk of infertility, and bowel and bladder problems.
“Straight away they said ‘You absolutely do have endometriosis, it’s clear as day’. So I guess that’s kind of a good thing because at least I know now what it is,” Molly-Mae continued in the video.
Nothing that she will keep updating fans on her journey, we wish her the very best with surgery and we’re sure she’ll continue to have us all in the loop.
