Actress and comedian Amy Schumer has revealed to fans that she has had her uterus and appendix removed as she continues to tackle endometriosis.

In a video posted on Instagram, taken by her husband Chris Fischer, the I Feel Pretty star opened up about how she had undergone a hysterectomy this weekend and was continuing to recover in hospital.

Speaking directly to the camera, Amy told her followers that it was the ‘morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out.’

She continued: ‘the doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.’

‘There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains.’

In addition to the clip, Amy shared a snap of herself posing with her hand on her hip in a hospital gown and blue latex gloves.

‘If you have really painful periods you may have #endometriosis,’ Amy told her followers in the caption.

The actress’s post, seeking to raise awareness of endometriosis has already garnered 291k likes on Instagram, with celebrities and fans alike rushing to wish the star well-wishes and a speedy recovery in the comments.

Endometriosis is a condition that involves cells – similar to the layer of tissue inside the uterus – growing outside of the uterus, and as many as one in ten Irish women have been diagnosed with the condition.

The most common symptoms are painful periods, pain during sexual intercourse, and excessive bleeding, and in some cases can lead to infertility.

Amy is the latest in a string of female celebrities who have opened up about suffering from the disorder, with stars including Halsey, Gabrielle Union, Jamie King, Julianna Hough, Alexa Chung and Molly-Mae Hague also sharing their experiences.
