The “Girls” creator suffers from endometriosis, an illness that occurs when tissue grows outside the uterus, and she has been very open with her fans about the chronic infection. A source close to Dunham revealed that her visit to the ER on Monday was related to her battle with the disorder, Page Six reports.

After undergoing a fifth surgical procedure last month, she told her fans that she was free of endometriosis.

“My surgery went off without a hitch,” she wrote. “There was no endometriosis left. Between my surgeries and hormonal intervention, I was disease-free. That doesn’t mean it can never return, but for now, once my sutures have been removed and my bruises have changed. … I will be healthy.”
