Jacqueline Jossa has begged her followers for some helpful tips after suffering from horrific period pains.
The ex-EastEnders actress, 28, took to Instgram to ask her 3.2 million followers for their remedies when suffering from pain during their time of the month.
The mum-of-two revealed that she’s been suffering with ‘excruciating’ pain in recent months but hasn’t gone to the doctor about her problem as she doesn’t want to ‘bother’ busy NHS staff.
Jacqueline also said she doesn’t want to go back on the contraceptive pill which is known to ease cramps during cycles but revealed that she’s been using the copper coil since giving birth to her youngest daughter Mia, 3.
Former I’m A Celebrity champion took to her Instagram Stories to pen: “The excruciating pain I’m in every month with my period recently is so bad.
“I don’t want to bother the doctors as I know it’s going to be either go back on the pill (really don’t want to do that, my body doesn’t do well with hormones pumping through). I have the copper coil in and it’s been there for three years since Mia really.
“They have been so bad and are getting worse recently. I need help. I don’t want to go on the pill. Are there other options?” Jacqueline asked.
The star, who shares two daughters, Mia and Ella, with husband Dan Osborne went on to admit that she’s fearful of ditching any form of contraception and ‘following an app’ because her unplanned life is too hectic.
Jacqueline admitted that she would be too ‘scared’ of forgetting to follow her natural cycle.
“I don’t want to have anything and to have to follow an app. This is too scary for my unplanned life, lol.
“I don’t usually talk about this stuff but I’m in such pain and it honestly ruins me for a few days. Honestly, it’s so bad.”
Jacqueline’s painful dilemma comes after the star posted a heartfelt lovely tribute to her husband Dan on Father’s Day.
In a series of photos on Instagram , the brunette babe shared four cute photos of the TOWIE celebrity along with their two daughters: Ella and Mia, as well as Dan’s first child, Teddy, whom he had from a previous relationship.
The 28-year-old star captioned it: “Happy Father’s Day my love.
“BEST DAD EVER!! We love you to the moon and back.”
The 29-year-old TOWIE-star and Jacqueline married in June 2017.
The couple have since moved into their new £1.2 million six-bedroom home in Essex.
