Love Island’s Molly-Mae Hague details 'excruciating' sex life as she opens up about endometriosis battle

The reality star spoke out during Endometriosis Awareness Month.

Love Island alumni Molly-Mae Hague has opened up about her experience with endometriosis.

Opening up about her struggles — which began when she was 15 — on her YouTube channel, the reality star said her periods are better following an operation, but she still struggles.

"My two main symptoms have been the excruciating periods and the excruciating sex," she said.

"I'll be completely honest, I do believe the painful sex symptom is what pushed me into getting my problem fixed, into working out what was wrong with my body because not only was I doing it for me and fixing it for me, which is obviously the main reason as to why you do it, I was also trying to do it my partner, for Tommy [Fury]...

"My sex drive was low, the pain was that excruciating [that] during sex that you're literally doing it for your partner, and that's not good for them because they frickin' know."

Hague explained that it took multiple trips to the doctor and a referral to a specialist to be diagnosed with endometriosis, after she was previously told her pain was a multitude of different things.

Endometriosis UK describes the condition as one where cells similar to ones lining the uterus spread to other parts of the body, and then break down and bleed as if they were still there. Unfortunately, that means the blood can't escape as a period and causes immense pain.

"In the UK, around 1.5 million women and those assigned female at birth are currently living with the condition, regardless of race or ethnicity," the websites states. "Endometriosis can affect you from puberty to menopause, although the impact may be felt for life."

The reality star has been very open and honest about her life with fans. Last year, Hague also spoke candidly on her YouTube channel about having surgery to remove a lump from her breast.

Love Island airs on ITV2 and is available via catch up on ITV Hub and BritBox.
