American comedian and actress Amy Schumer has opened up about speculation about her 'Puffier' face, People reported. The 42-year-old actor's Instagram images from her appearances on 'The Tonight Show' and 'Good Morning America' on Friday have invited remarks on her 'puffier' face.

She wrote, "Thank you so much for everyone's input about my face! I've enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years. And you're right, it is puffier than normal right now," wrote Schumer in a new Instagram post that included a poster for the second season of her show.

She added, "I have endometriosis an auto immune disease that every woman should read about. There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I’m okay. Historically women’s bodies have barely been studied medically compared to men. The book “all in her head” does a good job explaining this."

"I also believe a woman doesn’t need any excuse for her physical appearance and owes no explanation. But I wanted to take the opportunity to advocate for self love and acceptance of the skin you’re in. Like every other women/person some days I feel confident and good as hell and others I want to put a bag over my head. But I feel strong and beautiful and so proud of this tv show I created. Wrote. Starred in and directed. Maybe just maybe we can focus on that for a little. I had backup dancers on Fallon but my face is the headline hahaha anyway I hope you enjoy life and Beth. Love and solidarity," she added.

The 'Trainwreck' star confessed in a candid Instagram video from September 2021 that she had her uterus and appendix removed due to endometriosis, as per People. "So, it's the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out. 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," said Schumer. During an appearance on The Checkup with Dr. David Agus in December 2022, she stated that she felt "like a new person" after the treatment.

What is endometriosis?
