    Unhappy Do Fibroids cause hormonal imbalance and acne?

    Hi, i discovered i had fibroids about two years ago and i intend to have a myomectomy in April. However ever since i having the fibriods got worse,my hair has also become thinner (used to be very thick) but even worse than this, in the last year i have developed bad spots. I have never had spots before so to develop them in my thirties is quite depressing. Im sure the fibroids are causing some kind of hormonal imbalance and therefore causing the acne. Iv been to my doctors but they say they have never heard of any link between the two. I want to heal from the inside but not sure what to do. Anyone out there ever experienced this or have any ideas its really getting me down.

    I have never heard of a link either. If anything, I would put it the other way around - that they might be the result of a hormonal imbalance, not the cause. Same with acne.
