Molly-Mae Hague has revealed that she had to take a pregnancy test after her period was four days late.
The Love Island star, 22, – who is in a relationship with boxer Tommy Fury, also 22, – spoke in a new YouTube clip uploaded on Tuesday where she expressed her concerns.
Molly-Mae has been open about her struggles with endometriosis and in a second video told of her ‘unbearable’ pain when her period did arrive and said she was sad her recent surgery to help with the condition ‘hadn’t worked’.
Worry: Molly-Mae Hague has revealed that she had to take a pregnancy test after her period was four days late
She said in the clip: ‘I am so premenstrual, it’s a joke. I was meant to come on my period like four days ago, it’s so late.
‘I’m not going to lie, I did take a pregnancy test today. I’m literally never late on my period, but the pregnancy test was negative, obviously.
‘I wouldn’t be sat here having this conversation if it was positive.’

Molly-Mae went on to describe how she had been going through ‘unbearable pain’ with her periods lately due to endometriosis.
‘I’m really very hot, very needy, and I just want to eat bad things,’ she described her pre-period symptoms.
Later in another video she explained the pain she was in when she did eventually get her period.
In the clips titled ‘spend my period week with me’ she fought back tears as she spoke to her subscribers.

The star said: ‘So guys, the period came. I literally feel… just like so rubbish. I just know that my operation hasn’t worked and it’s just sad.
‘When I come on my period, that is the day for me, it’s not really any other day that I suffer too badly. It’s just I come on. The pain is unbearable.
‘Don’t get me wrong, the pain is better than is used to be since I’ve had the operation. It’s one of those days where I have to somehow make it through the day while being in so much pain.’
Molly added: ‘I’m in meetings where I can’t show that I just want to curl up in a ball and cry. That’s how bad the pain is.’
It comes after last November Molly-Mae put her tummy scars on display for the first time, after announcing she had undergone endometriosis surgery in October.
She debuted the marks in a video posted to her YouTube channel, which saw her model a black gym bra and matching leggings.
She told viewers in the body positive video: ‘My stomach is still not back to normal from when I had my endometriosis operation.
‘I don’t know if you can see but I’ve got… that’s just one of the scars from when they went into my stomach. They obviously went into my belly button as well.’

The influencer went on to quip: ‘And lower down – but I don’t think you really want to see my vagina. Not that I need to justify why my stomach doesn’t look extra toned today but that’s why.’
Molly-Mae had previously admitted her ‘health is not great’ as she underwent the procedure – to destroy or cut out endometriosis tissue – shortly after having lumps removed from her breast and finger.
Talking about the surgery on her YouTube channel, the Pretty Little Thing creative director said she was ‘feeling a bit of a mess’ and her recovery had taken longer then expected.
Endometriosis is a long-term condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
Molly-Mae said: ‘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 month after that surgery.
‘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.’
Molly told fans in June that she was finally diagnosed with endometriosis after her excruciating symptoms were repeatedly ignored by doctors.

Admitting that having the condition ‘wasn’t a good thing,’ Molly-Mae said the procedure could help treat the condition, but there was still a chance it could return in later life.
Molly-Mae added she was repeatedly told by doctors she couldn’t have endometriosis, and finally decided to seek help from a private specialist.
She explained: ‘Straight away they said ”You absolutely do have endometriosis, it’s clear as day”. So I guess that’s kind of a good thing because at least I know now what it is.
‘It’s not a good thing that I have endometriosis, because obviously it can affect fertility and loads of other things, and you can never really cure it.’
Explaining there was still a 40 per cent chance the condition could return, Molly-Mae told fans she knew surgery was the next step.
Endometriosis occurs when cells in the lining of the womb are found elsewhere in the body.
Each month, these cells react in the same way as those in the womb; building up, breaking down and bleeding. Yet, the blood has no way to escape the body.
Symptoms can include pain, heavy periods and fatigue, as well as a higher risk of infertility, and bowel and bladder problems.
What is endometriosis? How the disorder results in pelvic pain and internal scarring
Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus.
It most commonly affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis.
The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, although many women also experience cramping during their menstrual cycle.
Symptoms also include painful periods, pain with intercourse, pain with bowel movements or urination, inflammation, excessive bleeding, and infertility.
Often misdiagnosed, many women only discover they have the condition during infertility treatment.
Approximately half of women diagnosed with endometriosis have difficulty getting pregnant.
While studies about the link between endometriosis and miscarriages are still ongoing, newer research suggests that the condition can leave sufferers at greater risk of having a miscarriage.
