She also took a bikini selfie in her black and pink two piece on Instagram Stories, writing, “When the Target swimsuit does a b**ch right, Endo scars & all.”

Dunham has opened up in the past about her struggle with Endometriosis. In November 2015, she penned an essay about the disease on her site Lenny Letter.

“The feeling of stopping a crew of 100 people from doing their jobs is far more stressful than missing Intro to Greek Drama class at a liberal-arts college, but I felt the same sense of hot shame,” Dunham wrote of her struggles with the illness. “The kind of shame you feel as someone with an anxiety disorder that plays tricks on them. The kind of shame you feel as a woman showing weakness.”

She had a surgery in November, noting that afterward, “I was better than I had been in ten years.”
