Tiffany Haddish is opening up about her harrowing experience battling endometriosis and the heartbreaking toll it’s taken on her  health.

“I’m pretty sure the devil is real,” says Haddish, “because the first day of my period, no matter what, the devil goes into overdrive. I feel like my life gets turned upside down.”


For years, Haddish endured debilitating pain, unaware that it was a symptom of a deeper issue. Only recently did she discover that she likely suffers from endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pelvic pain and potentially leading to fertility problems.

The revelation came after years of misdiagnoses, including being told she had a “dent in my uterus.” But it wasn’t a dent; it was endometriosis, “extra layers” hanging down, as she describes it.

To address the issue, Haddish underwent procedures, including fibroid removal, to alleviate the pain. However, the most devastating aspect of her struggle has been the series of pregnancy losses she’s endured.

“It’s so f—ing devastating,” she admits, revealing that she’s experienced a total of eight miscarriages. 

“Every time I find out I’m pregnant, I’m like, ‘Don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t do nothin’,” she shares, emphasizing her commitment to giving each pregnancy a chance.

Her most recent miscarriage was a mere year ago. “It’s like, I won’t know why there’s so much blood. And then I go to the doctor and they’re like, ‘Oh, you’re miscarrying right now. And I just D&C (dilation and curettage, a procedure to remove pregnancy tissue)”.

Yet, amidst the pain and heartache, Haddish remains resilient. Though she’s currently celibate but dating, she’s not ruling out the possibility of marriage or motherhood in the future.

“I’ve got all this love, I should give it to somebody who can grow with it,” she says.

As for her current health, Haddish shares a glimmer of hope.

“The last two months have not been as bad,” she says. Prescribed hormone medication, “I just feel drowsy. But I’ve been working out even more. And I’ve gone from 11 days [on my period] to four or five, which is kind of normal, so that’s nice.”
