Olivia Culpo shows off killer abs amid endometriosis diagnosis and her ‘excruciating’ symptoms

OLIVIA Culpo was white-hot on Tuesday as she showcased her killer abs.

The former Miss USA and former Miss Universe made herself top of the crops in a cut-off top, which flaunted her midriff.

She posed up a storm in the sexy outfit, as she seductively draped her cardigan off one shoulder in the picture she shared to her Instagram.

The beauty, who counts Nick Jonas, Tim Tebow and Danny Amendola among her exes, teased her wavy brunette tresses over one shoulder.

The pretty influencer appeared to be in her stylishly decorated home, and had applied neutral make-up tones with a smokey brown eye and perfectly groomed brows.

Olivia – who is now dating another football player, Christian McCaffrey, recently revealed her excruciating symptoms of endometriosis.

She revealed her diagnosis in a series of Instagram Stories last week.

The model said that she experiences "excruciating" symptoms and urged others to take the disorder "seriously."

Olivia captioned a photo of herself lounging on the couch: "I've never publicly said this before but I have endometriosis. AKA the most excruciating painful cramps/periods.

"Anyone else reading this have Endo? No fun."

Endometriosis is when the tissue similar to the tissue lining the inside of a woman's uterus grows outside of the uterus.

When women have the disorder, the outer tissue becomes trapped in other parts of the body.

This causes severe pain during menstrual periods and can also lead to fertility issues.

Olivia then explained her experience with the disorder in detail and said: "I can't believe that a lot of you also suffer from endometriosis.

"It is so not fun, very painful."

While some women with the disorder choose to have surgery, the 28-year-old said that she's not interested in having the procedure and instead relies on "lots of heating pads, lots of water and lots of Midol, honestly."

Olivia went on to address a "really important" aspect of the disorder and said: "If you are having very painful periods and you are not being diagnosed with what you think could be endometriosis, definitely do your research because if you don't discover that you have this, it could get in the way of your fertility.

"You could have tissue growing in areas that you really shouldn't have that would interfere with maybe getting pregnant some day, your eggs could be getting damaged."

The model asked her followers for tips on how to help ease the pain, while she noted that baths are an "amazing" way to feel better while experiencing symptoms.

In another slide, Olivia urged her followers to "do your research and due diligence if you are in a lot of pain."

She added: "Definitely go to your doctor if you have painful periods. Painful periods are not normal.

"You just want to make sure that everything is ok if you did want to get pregnant. You just never know. You don't want to wait too late, so I want everyone to take that seriously."

After taking a break from the topic, Olivia returned to her Instagram Stories a few hours later to explain why she's so "passionate" about the issue.

She said: "My doctor tells me about people who come to her in their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s about not having been able to have kids.

"The thing that's so sad about that is because they may have had endometriosis that may have affected their fertility in some way and if they had caught it earlier, they could have frozen their eggs.

"There would have been more options."
