Shruti Haasan recently spoke to a publication on her girl problems and stated, "My first period completely changed my life. From being the girl who couldn’t wait to be part of the cool older girl club, I became the girl who spent days doubled up in agony. Very early on, I was diagnosed with endometriosis and dysmenorrhea—both debilitating conditions affecting the uterus and other reproductive organs—and the chronic pain that comes with it is hard to overstate. It was embarrassing when my principal had to call my parents to take me home from school every few weeks because I was so unwell."

Shruti Haasan speaks girl problems days when hope for menopause

"I was 10kgs heavier than I’ve ever been, and no amount of eating right or exercising seemed to help. My immunity had taken a hit, and add to that the struggle of dealing with comments about my physical appearance from absolute strangers. For a year I couldn’t figure was wrong with me, so I finally decided to take a break from work. It came as a big relief when I found out I had prolactinoma—a rare condition caused by the oversecretion of prolactin that was triggered by PCOS. It’s like when one hormone is out of whack, everything falls out of place. There are days when I hope for menopause, but then I remember that it brings along its own unique problems."

She concluded with,  "I’ve become my own cheerleader. Now I think of my period as a symbol of feminine strength and fertility. It’s a reminder of what my body is capable of doing. It has the power to heal and repair itself, and I don’t take it for granted anymore. Living with this condition is still a struggle, and there are days when I’m powering through on Feminax (the only painkiller that seems to be working right now), but this understanding of my body is a big part of my healing.
