Halsey has decided for herself that she wouldn't let her health problems bring her down anymore, and the singer is now ready to take matters into her own hands. The 23-year-old is taking an aggressive stance when it comes to treating her endometriosis and planning for her future.


The Bad at Love singer revealed on an episode of The Doctors that she will be freezing her eggs. While at 23 it looks like an extreme decision, Halsey explained her reasons for doing so. "Doing an ovarian reserve is important to me because I'm fortunate enough to have that as an option, but I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility, about protecting myself."

The pop-singer suffers from a medical condition called endometriosis, in which tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside the uterus. 

According to reports, Halsey's doctors informed the star that her symptoms were caused by dehydration, fatigue and anxiety, and it took intense hospitalization coupled with a terrible miscarriage for the performer to get more answers from her medical team.


She recalled, "When I started touring and playing concerts and traveling, the stress and strain on my body really started to enhance the symptoms and make the experience a little bit worse."

According to Halsey, her brush with endometriosis can, at best, be labeled as a 'bittersweet' moment for her. "It was the relief of knowing that I wasn't making it all up and I wasn't being sensitive and it wasn't all in my head. It also kind of sucked to know that I was going to be living with this forever."

It was only a couple of months after her contacting endometriosis that she found out she was pregnant. "Before I could even really figure out what that meant to me and what that meant for my future, for my career, for my life for my relationship… The next thing I know I was onstage miscarrying in the middle of my concert," Halsey shared. 

"The sensation of looking a couple hundred teenagers in the face while you're bleeding through your clothes and still having to do the show," she continued. "Realizing in that moment I never want to make that choice ever again of doing what I love or not being able to because of this disease. So I put my foot down and I got really aggressive about seeking treatment."


However, through all the medical complications and health hazards, the singer still believes in the power of living a healthy life and remaining positive about her personal well-being.

"Reproductive illness is so frustrating because it can really make you feel like less of a woman," she said. "There's a lot of times when you're sitting at home and you just feel so terrible about yourself. You're sick, you don't feel sexy, you don't feel proud, you don't feel like there's much hope. And so taking these measures, so that hopefully I can have a bright future and achieve the things that I want to achieve by doing the ovarian reserve is really important."
