Married at First Sight Australia star Lauren Dunn has shared a "wild" interaction with a fan who said she's saved their life.

Earlier this year, the Aussie bride had to temporarily leave the dating show to undergo surgery when she found blood clots between her shoulder and clavicles.

In a new Instagram Story, Lauren shared some DMs she's received from a MAFS fan who thanked her for raising awareness to signs of blood clots. Lauren speaking up about her experience led to the person discovering they had some too and seeking medical help.

"Girl! You're the reason I found out I had blood clots. I'll always be in debt to you," the fan's message reads.

"No jokes, you saved my life," another DM reads.

"I didn't know anything about blood clots until your experience on MAFS. Literally woke up with clots the next day and I wouldn't have known what it was if it wasn't for you!"

Lauren described the circumstance as "wild". "Am I a hero?!" she joked.

In March, Lauren opened up on her ordeal, explaining she "woke up and the whole side of [her] body was numb and really purple."

"I said, 'Something is not right'. I rang Jono – who was at the gym – and he told me to go to the doctor.

"Once I spoke to the doctor he basically told me that I needed to go straight to the hospital."

A week after surgery, Lauren was able to rejoin the show.
