She then added: "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!" Molly-Mae then joked, before sharing: "But my sex life just became non-existent: it was just not part of our relationship."Having undergone surgery for the condition last year and shown off her scars from the procedure, the influencer and PrettyLittleThing Creative director said that her symptoms were so painful she felt like she’d "been hit by a car"."Mine have definitely worsened over the years, I cannot explain the levels of pain I have experienced."I have actually nearly called myself an ambulance on multiple occasions because of the level of pain that I was in."In the same video Molly-Mae explain how sex is "still painful" for her.
