‘Our sex life was non-existent – it was not part of our relationship ‘: Molly Mae-Hague gives an intimate insight into her life with Tommy Fury as she battled ‘excruciating’ endometriosis
The reality star and entrepreneur, 23, wrote about her struggle in her new book, Becoming Molly-Mae, and said that some of her health issues reared their head once she had started seeing Tommy, also 23.
Endometriosis causes tissue similar to the lining of the uterus to grow in different organs around the body.

Tissue build-up can be in minimal but in the most painful severe cases it can cause scarring that fuses organs together because of the time it takes for the cells to leave the body after they thicken during the menstrual cycle.
Molly-Mae wrote: ‘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.’
But she said: ‘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! But my sex life just became non-existent: it was just not part of our relationship.’
Back in March, Molly-Mae admitted she thought she would die and has nearly called an ambulance multiple times during her periods.
The influencer explained how she found nights particularly difficult, and was fearful she ‘wouldn’t wake up’ due to the excruciating pain.
She said: ‘I have actually nearly called myself an ambulance on multiple occasions because of the level of pain that I was in.
‘It got so bad, I would be rolling in bed and I would actually be fearful for my life, thinking for my body to be in this much agonising pain, what is it going through?
‘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 was fearful I wouldn’t wake up in the morning. It was so so horrendous.’
‘Tommy didn’t even used to know what to do with me, he would be looking at me like, “I don’t know what to do”.’
