Relation between ovarian fibroid and increased underarm odor?
I'm 29, never had a pregnancy, generally healthy, regular periods throughout life. But in the past year I noticed a big increase in menstrual cramping, volume and had a few instances of (extremely) painful intercourse. I was told a year ago my uterus was pushed way over to one side resting in my hip bone so I thought I should get another ultrasound. And sure enough, they found a 3" fibroid on my ovary. This was in December. I'm not on birth control so my periods are very very painful, last 7 days, and occur about every 23-25 days. FUN!
With my research on the internet, I learned that a fibroid is caused by a hormonal imbalance. So could that imbalance also cause excessive underarm odor? I tried research this on the internet further but all I can find is info on ovarian cysts or on uterine fibroids. Which is not what I have. I have an ovarian fibroid! If this is a common sign of a hormone imbalance as a result of my fibroid, then I know I need to try harder and finding a cause of my imbalance.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
