It comes after Megan was rushed to hospital in Queensland in 2021 after experiencing severe abdominal pain.
She required immediate medical attention after getting off a flight from Western Australia.
‘Flew from WA back to Queensland yesterday after six weeks away for this egg donation. Ended up going straight to hospital from the plane,’ she explained in a lengthy Instagram post.

She said her symptoms included: ‘Severe abdominal swelling and pain, pain on pressure, plus a few other milder symptoms (nausea, dizziness, leg pain, shortness of breath). Unsure if being in the air made it worse.’
Megan was diagnosed with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
‘OHSS is no joke, I can’t imagine how people with severe symptoms deal with this, because it’s just been a week of hell,’ she said.
However, Megan reassured her fans she would pull through: ‘I’ll be fine. Basically the amount of fluid leaking into my body is causing all these issues.’
