Molly-Mae Hague compared her severe endometriosis pain to “labour” as she opened up about her recent diagnosis in a new video.
The former Islander, 22, delved deeper into what the condition is like in a brand new YouTube clip.
Molly-Mae, who recently launched her new clothing line with PrettyLittleThing, explained how she has frequently had to take days off work while battling the pain that often leaves her unable to “stand up” .
Detailing what the pain is like, Molly-Mae continued: “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,” she added.
“I feel like I have literally been in a car crash after I've been on my period – it's just not normal.”
The reality star, who recently shared how her and her boyfriend Tommy Fury went ring shopping, also revealed she received a backlash online after discussing her condition for the first time last month.

She said: “I know it’s not a topic that everyone wants to hear about or understands because it’s not a topic that everyone is affected by.
“[But] I actually got a lot of backlash in one of my last videos when I spoke about it, I got so much backlash.
“The amount of tweets and DMs I got from girls saying I am not educating people properly…”
Despite the wave of negative feedback she received, the star reassured fans that she had extensive checks to confirm the diagnosis was correct before she shared her health news publicly.
She reiterated: “I have had every poke, prod, scan, ultrasound, internal, external – you name it, the dignity is gone.”
Last month, Molly-Mae revealed she had taken her menstrual concerns to a private specialist after she was repeatedly turned away from her local GP.

On average it takes seven and a half years after symptoms first appear for women to receive an official endometriosis diagnosis.
The condition is caused when the tissue from the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
This often causes intense pain, heavy periods and fatigue, and comes with the risk of infertility along with bowel and bladder problems.
