MOLLY-MAE Hague revealed to fans she had surgery for her endometriosis but kept it a secret until now.
The 22-year-old influencer opened up to her fans to explain why she had been "all over the place" in late September.
Molly had undergone major surgery for her endometriosis and had not anticipated how 'hard' it would be or that the recovery would be such a bumpy road.
Speaking on her YouTube, she said: "I've definitely been all over the place these last couple of weeks. I didn't tell anybody, but I had my endometriosis surgery.
"This is just a lot because last video I started saying I had this surgery and now I'm saying I've had a different surgery.
"But the operation was way way harder to go through than I thought and my recovery time was quite a bit longer than I had planned and I was just a bit of a mess after that surgery."
She added with a smile: "A lot of the things I've been talking about recently is like my health is not great – but my endometriosis video is the last now. I am done, hopefully I never have to see my doctor's surgery or the hospital that I go to for a long time."
It's been a rough road for Molly's health this year who also had surgery to remove a lump on her left breast and finger in the same week.
Molly first revealed her battle with endometriosis in July and described how the pain was so bad it felt "labour" and told how she "can't stand up" when her periods are at their worst.
Endometriosis is a condition where the tissue that lines the womb grows outside the womb, such as in the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
It acts in the same way as the tissue in the womb, building and shedding blood throughout the cycle.
Endometriosis can make periods agonising, heavier or irregular.
It takes an average of seven years for a woman with endometriosis to get a diagnosis.
She explained in July: "I have had every poke, prod, scan, ultrasound, internal, external – you name it, the dignity is gone.
"It's never to be seen again. And do you know what, that's fine I'm not that person that finds things like that embarrassing."
What is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a chronic condition which occurs when tissue from the lining of the womb is found outside of the womb – in areas of the body including the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, the abdomen and the bladder.
So what causes the condition that so many women suffers from?
The exact cause of the condition isn't known, but it's thought it could be hereditary or due to environmental factors – namely the presence of dioxins in the environment.
Meanwhile, other experts believe it could be caused by a process called retrograde menstruation, which is when the womb lining flows backwards through the Fallopian tubes into the abdomen, instead of leaving the body as a period.
Endometriosis can sometimes cause damage to the Fallopian tubes or ovaries, leading to fertility problems.
Other complications can include painful ovarian cysts and adhesions – areas of tissue which can fuse organs together.
She added: "I'm just glad that I can now get it sorted and have the surgery to now hopefully once and for all get rid of the period pains that are … I can honestly only probably describe them as on the same level as labour.
"I don't know, obviously I don't know what labour feels like but they are at a point where I literally can't stand up.
"I'm literally screaming in pain, no painkiller will make me feel any better, I have to take days and days off work.
"I feel like I have literally been in a car crash after I've been on my period – it's just not normal."
