She said: "I guess the main thing that was important which I wished I had done a bit earlier was the hormone test."
She went on to explain to her followers that the tests had revealed that she was suffering from low levels of testosterone and oestrogen in the body and ended up using supplements to help rectify the issues.
She then gave fans some advice, asking them to "understand where your body is at and what your body needs."
On Christmas Eve, Montana shared the news that she is expecting a baby with her boyfriend Mark, showing fans the moment she discovered she was pregnant.
She then shared photos of her and Mark on holiday, showing off her baby bump in a bikini, writing: "Baby O’Connor coming next summer.”
The video showed Montana sharing a glimpse of the early moments of her pregnancy, with the video beginning with 'Baby O'Connor' written in the sand on a beach.
It also showed her attending her first scan as the soon to be parents heard their baby's heartbeat for the first time.
