hormones &amp  cysts
Hello doc, I' ve made appointment with my gynae to discuss my hormones &  ovarian cysts. I am 32 years old and stopped the injection 6 months ago after a painful trip to the hospital, which then turned out to be a 6 cm cyst which was drained. subsequent sonars &  x-rays then revealed that i have 7 more cysts. Women in my family go through menopause early (roundabout age 35).I suddenly have a huge acne problem (since I stopped the injection) I have 3 kids &  don' t want more.

My questions are:
1) can cysts be permanently stopped at all?
2) Are there any safe remedies?
3) Is IUF a good option in my case?
4) Will my hormone levels be in their natural state after 6 months (to get a base test done)
5) are cysts a " warning"  that I might be in danger of getting cancer? (the one they drained looked " healthy"  and no biopsy was done)

Are there any more questions I should be asking my gynae regarding these matters?

Thanking you in advance

If you have many cysts, this may be PCOS, and this has specific treatments. The other questions really depend on a proper diagnosis being made.
