Lena Dunham is putting her health first.
The Girls star and creator won't promote her hit HBO show's new season because of an endometriosis flare-up, she announced Monday.
"As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women's reproductive health," she captioned an Instagram of her hand lying on a bed. "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."
