Oh no!

Lena Dunham couldn't be more excited for the fifth season of Girls to premiere on HBO later this month!

But unfortunately the 29-year-old won't be doing press for the upcoming season due to health reasons.

On Monday, the actress took to Instagram to explain that she was skipping out on the press tour for her dramedy series because of a "rough patch" with her illness.

Dunham explained she is living with endometriosis — a chronic disorder that affects a woman's reproductive health — and was told by doctors to rest until her condition improves.

She thanked exec producers Jennifer Konner and Judd Apatow for their "support and backup," and made it clear she wouldn't take this hiatus for granted — as so many women battling the disease "literally don't have the option" of taking time off.

We're glad the writer is taking the time to rest up when her body needs it the most. Feel better, girl!

Read her full post (below) and watch the season five premiere of Girls February 21 on HBO!

Lena Dunham Graduating From Girls To Fashion?!

lena dunham girls hbo fashion show betty halbreich

When HBO got the rights to a book about high fashion and fame, of course they thought of Lena Dunham to write the TV show!

Along with co-showrunner Jenni Konner, Lena has created a bona fide hit for the network, and they're hoping the duo can do it again!

Only instead of Girls, they'll be writing about women! One particular woman, in fact- Betty Halbreich!

Over the last four decades, the personal shopper has become a fashion guru to stars such as Meryl Streep, Katie Couric, and even Sarah Jessica Parker!

That's right! Betty helped create the look for Sex And The City, the show that helped create the look for America!

Is Lena Dunham ready to write a woman that already became who she was? Guess we'll have to tune in to find out!
