The This Goddess Means Business author also implied she suffered from cervical cancer.
Earlier this year, Daily Mail reported that in a since-deleted Instagram, Tracey wrote: 'Hair never grows back after cervical cancer the same way, thank you for always being so amazing and making my hair look fabulous!'
Now, the star has addressed the post for the first time, stating it was 'taken out of context.'
'A written off the cuff sentence of a post me saying my hair never grew back properly and I love my hair extensions was a short context of what I clarified later via many media statements was that I was diagnosed with CIN3 abnormal cells that I have two operations to remove after giving birth 6 weeks earlier,' she said.
According to cancer.gov, CIN3 are severely abnormal cells found on the surface of the cervix which can turn cancerous if not teated.
'Due to the medications, antibiotics and giving up breastfeeding my hair and skin changed with these combining factors and was a very traumatic time. I have apologised several times if anyone took this one insta comment in the wrong way it was not my intention to mislead anyone.'
The MAFS star finished her statement stating she would be taking one month offline for 'self care' due to the 'negative toll' the situation has had on her health.

The publication revealed that German police were called by the former reality star following the break-up.
Jewel, 35, was forced to turn to the Australian embassy after she was 'unable to pay for her own flight home,' the Daily Mail reports.
A source close to the This Goddess Means Business author confirmed her relationship with Patrick had ended, claiming: 'The cruise was too much too fast for both of them.'
'Things reached breaking point on Saturday night when they had an almighty row -with Tracey moving into a separate hotel room to calm down.'
'Patrick officially ended things and Tracey was then left to arrange her own return travel back home to Australia alone after they split.'
'But she hadn't taken any money with her on the trip and was left stranded. The last friends heard she'd filed a complaint with the police was waiting for the Australian embassy to open on Monday so she could figure out what to do.'
