    The I Feel Pretty star stood on the sidewalk in Manhattan and held out an orange Jack o’ Lantern candy bucket.

    ‘I don’t have a uterus but nothing can stop me from wearing Tampax, okay?’ the Trainwreck actress joked.

    ‘You got some candy?’ she asked a man who was off camera. ‘Yeah, I do,’ he replied.

    ‘Oh, can I get…’ Amy trailed off as she walked forward with her bucket outstretched at the end of the clip.

    In July 2020, the Last Comic Standing alum teamed up with Tampax for the brand’s #TimeToTampax period and tampon education campaign, which aims to end the stigma around discussing menstruation.

    Amy appeared in a series of funny videos in which she addressed common misconceptions that people have about period products.  

    The Emmy Award winner is known for tackling taboo topics in her comedy sketches and stand up routines. 

    After joining the campaign, she said in a statement: ‘When I started working with Tampax, it made my heart hurt to hear about the discomfort people are putting up with because they don’t understand periods or even how to use a tampon properly, and I want to do everything I can to change that.

    ‘My hope is that through this partnership, we’ll educate ourselves and each other and take the senseless shame out of getting your period.’

    In September, Amy revealed that she had a hysterectomy and an appendectomy to treat her endometriosis. 

    The star has long been vocal about her battle with endometriosis – a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

    The condition can cause painful periods, pain with sexual intercourse, excessive bleeding during menstruation and infertility.

    Amy took her followers along through the process and noted in a clip it was ‘the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out.’

    She explained: ‘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.’ 

    In the caption she wrote: ‘If you have really painful periods you may have #endometriosis.’

    Symptoms: As well as a video, the Snatched actress uploaded a selfie in which she was seen in a hospital gown and blue latex gloves. In the caption she wrote: 'If you have really painful periods you may have #endometriosis'
