Julianne Hough says endometriosis makes her sex life "frustrating" at times.
"It can definitely cut things short," Hough told the magazine. "Sometimes we're in the middle and I'm just like, 'AH, stop!'"
"It can be really frustrating," she said. "He only wants to love on me and make me feel good."
The former "Dancing with the Stars" professional partner and judge said she and Laich have found ways to be intimate without triggering pain.
Hough first experienced symptoms from endometriosis, a disorder where abnormal tissue grows outside the uterus, at 15 years old.
The condition affects an estimated one in 10 women of reproductive age, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
She was diagnosed at age 20 after a bout of cramping sent her to the emergency room.
"I didn't think to go to the gynecologist. Because I'm a competitor, I felt like I had to push through the pain and just work," the star recalled of her experience at as a teen.
"My body is very precious to me, I didn't think of it that way before," she said of her approach now.
"If I don't feel like working out that day, then I don't do it. If I want to sleep in, then I will."
Hough and Laich married in an intimate, outdoor wedding in July 2017.
