Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has shared the news with fans that a date has been set for an operation set to help her manage her endometriosis.
The social media influencer was diagnosed with the condition earlier this year after fans helped her to get her diagnosis by urging her to visit her doctor.
The condition causes tissue similar to the lining of the womb to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes and can cause discomfort.
She shared the news about her upcoming keyhole surgery with fans in an online Q&A.
"How are you feeling about potential surgery? Has it sunk in a bit more?" one Instagram user asked the 22-year-old.
"I’ve got a date for my operation now," Molly replied.
"I’m just looking forward to it to be honest because my endometriosis MASSIVELY impacts my life, I just pray the surgery helps.
"I’m looking forward to speaking more about it on my YouTube to educate people properly on it. I know a lot of girls want me to do this."
She has previously opened up to fans about her condition, and thanked them for helping her to get a diagnosis.
Back in June, she told fans: ‘I’ve told you guys for so long now that I’ve suffered with excruciating periods and so many of you guys have been commenting on my videos like, “please check for endometriosis”.
"My period pains are to the point where I literally can’t stand up, I’m in unbearable pain, I’ve had to take time off work… it’s ridiculous."
She added her fears were initially dismissed by doctors, who told her she "definitely" didn't have the condition.
But, after seeking out a specialists, she got a diagnosis and help with the pain.
"Anyway, I went to this other doctor who was a specialist in endometriosis, and straight away they said 'You absolutely do have endometriosis, it's clear as day,'" she went on to explain.
"So I guess that's kind of a good thing because at least I know now what it is.

"This keyhole surgery that I'm gonna have is to get rid of it, but there's like a 40 per cent chance of it coming back, but I need to do something about all this stuff that I'm dealing with the endometriosis, I need to have this surgery."
She also opened up about her nerves ahead of having required blood tests.
"I wanna be that mature girl that can just walk into the doctors and they say 'oh we've gotta take a blood test' and I'm like 'yeah no worries', she said.
"I wanna be that mature, cool girl that nothing phases, but I just wasn't born that way. That isn't me, that's not the way I was created, and that's just the way it is."
