At 23, Halsey is freezing her eggs amid endometriosis battle

Halsey is getting “aggressive” in treating her endometriosis and planning for her future.

“I’m 23 years old, and I’m going to freeze my eggs,” the singer shared on Thursday’s episode of “The Doctors.” “And when I tell people that, they’re like, ‘You’re 23, why do you need to do that? Why do you need to freeze your eggs?’ 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.”

Endometriosis — which affects 176 million women worldwide, according to the Endometriosis Foundation of America — occurs when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus instead of inside it, according to the foundation, which also notes that the cause of the disease is unknown.

The “Colors” singer has been open about her personal health issues in recent years, having first revealed in 2016 that she suffered a miscarriage while on tour.

“I beat myself up for it,” she told Rolling Stone. “I think that the reason it happened is just the lifestyle I was living. I wasn’t drinking. I wasn’t doing drugs. I was f–king overworked – in the hospital every couple of weeks because I was dehydrated, needing bags of IVs brought to my green room. I was anemic, I was fainting. My body just broke the f–k down.”

She said no one pressured her to perform that day, but she regretted choosing to do so.

“I want to be a mom more than I want to be a pop star,” she said. “More than I want to be anything in the world.”
