 "Thank you so much for everyone’s input about my face... And you’re right, it is puffier than normal right now," she shared, shedding light on her battle with endometriosis, an autoimmune disease that she encourages every woman to learn about.

Amy has been candid about her struggles with endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of it, causing severe pain and other symptoms. 

In 2021, she underwent surgery to remove her appendix and uterus to address the condition, sharing her experience and recovery with her followers.

 "The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed... There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus, and I'm, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains," she detailed in a heartfelt post from the hospital.

Reflecting on the challenges of motherhood and her health, Amy revealed the difficult decision that she couldn't undergo pregnancy again after the traumatic birth of her son, Gene, in May 2019. 

Amy and her husband, Chris Fischer, whom she wed in a fairytale ceremony in 2018, cherish their time with Gene, embracing every moment of their journey together as a family.
