Girls creator Lena Dunham was hospitalized Saturday and is expected to undergo surgery.
"Lena Dunham has been very public with her personal bouts with endometriosis. This morning, she suffered from an ovarian cyst rupture and has been taken to the hospital," Dunham's spokesperson, Cindi Berger, explained to PEOPLE. "Lena will [be] undergoing surgery at an undisclosed hospital. We thank you for you understanding and hope that Lena's privacy will be respected."
At this time, it is not known how long Dunham will remain in the hospital.
"I just want to let you know that, while I am so excited for Girls to return on Feb, 21, I won't be out and about doing press for the new season," she revealed. "As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women's reproductive health. 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."
