Lena Dunham Reveals Why She Pulled Out Of Girls Press Tour

Lena Dunham has cancelled her Girls press tour.

The new season of the hit show will return to screens on Feb 21 but Lena will not be promoting it.

It’s because the star suffers from endometriosis and is currently going through what she has called a “rough patch.”

Her doctors have advised her to rest and she is going to follow their orders.

Endometriosis is a disease which causes the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus to grow outside of the womb. 

This can cause unbearable pelvic pain and fatigue.

It affects around 1 in 10 women around the world.

Hey Beloved Pals, I just wanted to let you know that, while I am so excited for Girls to return on Feb 21, I won't be out and about doing press for the new season. As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women's reproductive health. I am currently going through a rough patch with the illness and my body (along with my amazing doctors) let me know, in no uncertain terms, that it's time to rest. That's a hard thing to do, but I'm trying, because all I want is to make season 6 of Girls the best one yet. I'm lucky enough to have support and backup from Jenni, Judd and the whole Girls gang. So many women with this disease literally don't have the option of time off and I won't take it for granted. Wishing you all health & happiness, in whatever form suits you. Back soon xxLena
