Los Angeles Feb 14 (IANS) Actress Lena Dunham has revealed that she underwent hysterectomy to combat endometriosis pain.



She has spoken about the condition which results from abnormal tissue growth in the uterus in the March 2018 issue of Vogue magazine reports variety.com.

Dunham said she underwent a total hysterectomy or the removal of her cervix and uterus. The Endometriosis Foundation excerpted the article on its website.

"In addition to endometrial disease an odd hump-like protrusion and a septum running down the middle I have retrograde bleeding aka my period running in reverse so that my stomach is full of blood " Dunham wrote.

"My ovary has settled in on the muscles around the sacral nerves in my back that allow us to walk. Let s please not even talk about my uterine lining. The only beautiful detail is that the organ which is meant to be shaped like a light bulb was shaped like a heart."

Dunham has been repeatedly hospitalised and has undergone multiple surgeries to try to treat her condition. She was even declared endometriosis-free last April although a month later she was rushed to the hospital and had to cancel her "Lenny IRL" tour after she reported feeling the "greatest amount of physical pain that I have ever experienced".

Despite having her reproductive organs removed Dunham said that she still intends to have children via surrogacy or adoption.

"I may have felt choiceless before but I know I have choices now. Soon I ll start exploring whether my ovaries which remain someplace inside me in that vast cavern of organs and scar tissue have eggs. Adoption is a thrilling truth I ll pursue with all my might " she said.
