Lena Dunham has taken a big step in her fight with endometriosis.

The Girls star reveals in the March 2018 issue of Voguethat due to her years-long health battle with the painful uterine disorder, she underwent a total hysterectomy -- the total removal of one's cervix and uterus -- according to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.

"In addition to endometrial disease, an odd hump-like protrusion and a septum running down the middle, I have retrograde bleeding, a.k.a. my period running in reverse so that my stomach is full of blood," the 31-year-old filmmaker shares in her essay for the publication. "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.”

Lena Dunham said she underwent a total hysterectomy — the surgical removal of the cervix and uterus — in an attempt to ease the pain caused by endometriosis.

Dunham says that she hopes the procedure will help with the pain she's endured, and help her be able to make a new choice for her life -- motherhood.

"I may have felt choiceless before, but I know I have choices now," she writes. "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."

Dunham has been very public about her endometriosis struggles, sharing hospital updates and helping spread awareness on the disorder.
