Lena Dunham Battling Endometriosis

The Condition That Is Preventing Lena Dunham From Promoting the Final Season of Girls

Most know and love Lena Dunham for her outspoken personality and radiant confidence, but the actress recently shocked fans after announcing her battle with a serious case of endometriosis. This condition occurs when uterine lining tissue strays outside the uterus and grows in places it isn't meant to. Along with causing severe pain, endometriosis may cause infertility. Lena shared a note about her ongoing struggle on Instagram and how it's affecting the final season of Girls.

Endometriosis reaches approximately 10 percent of women during their reproductive years, and many are beginning to speak out about their personal experience with the condition, including musician Halsey.
