Molly-Mae Hague admits she doesn’t have a ‘high sex drive’ but said it was ‘through the roof’ during her pregnancy – while fiancé Tommy Fury found it ‘uncomfortable’
Molly-Mae Hague has admitted she doesn’t have a ‘high sex drive’ but said it was ‘through the roof’ during her pregnancy.
The Love Island star, 24, then revealed her fiancé Tommy Fury, who she shares daughter Bambi with, found it ‘uncomfortable’.
In a new video with her big sister Zoe, 27, posted to Zoe’s YouTube Channel, the pair talked of their generally low sex drives.
Molly-Mae said: ‘One thing I will add, when I was pregnant, my sex drive was through the roof.’
Zoe replied: ‘Oh really?’ as Molly continued: ‘Yeah literally like through the roof.
‘Tommy’s wasn’t – when I was pregnant he found it a bit strange. And that’s fine, some men do,’ to which Zoe confessed: ‘I think I probably would.’
Molly added: ‘Some men are really into it [sex when their partner is pregnant] or some partners will be… Tommy found it quite uncomfortable the thought that Bambi was in there and I was here. ‘It was just a bit weird.’
Zoe said: ‘I think low sex drives in females is a lot more common than you think.
‘Obviously, speak to your partner about it…’ before Molly continued: ‘I remember when I was pregnant and I wanted to have sex all the time and Tommy didn’t I was like ‘oh do you not find me attractive?’
‘But I always say to Tommy if I’m not feeling it, ‘it’s nothing to do with you it’s a me problem.’
Molly Mae-Hague has always been open about her sex life with Tommy and previously tole her followers it is ‘non-existent’ due to her battle with ‘excruciating’ endometriosis.
The entrepreneur 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.
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, who signed copies of her book in the Trafford Centre on Monday, 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’.’
The former Love Islander first spoke of her diagnosis last year and has bravely shown scars from operations she’s undergone to ease her symptoms.
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.
