I am a 38 yo female. I have had one child (preeclampsia) and

I am a 38 yo female. I have had one child (preeclampsia) and a tubal ligation was performed two years later. I have had three surgeries to remove large simple cysts in right ovary before and after pregnancy. I have also had multiple d & c to control heavy bleeding. A uterine abrasion was performed in 2014 with good results. I also have been diagnosed with pcos and diabetes. Last week I found out I now have a complex cyst which needs removed and suspected endometriosis. I experience immense pain before and during my cycle for last year. My family history includes a grandmother who died of ovarian cancer and my aunt tested positive for BRCA2 and had a complete hysterectomy. My current gynecologist is brushing off my concerns and wants to simply remove the cyst. What do you think?

I had the Mirena IUD implanted 5 months ago, not for birth

I had the Mirena IUD implanted 5 months ago, not for birth control, as I've had a tubal ligation 11 years ago, but to control menstrual irregularities related to PCOS. I have also been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and am on levothyroxine 0.05mg. I'm unsure of what the bigger factor in my current issues are- I've been making sebum like it's going out of style, I'm exhausted all the time but can't sleep, and I've been treated twice in the past 5 months for BV/Yeast infection at the same time. Recent TSH (<90 days ago) has me in normal range, Iron is good, but it feels like I'm still hypo because of the exhaustion, I'm getting acne like I'm 14.Is there some connection in some way with PCOS and hypothyroidism, especially in a patient who has a heavy family history on both sides (both parents, at least 2 half-siblings, both grandmothers, 3 uncles on mother's side, etc.) of autoimmune issues (Hashimoto's, Lupus, RA)? Is there a connection with PCOS and hypothyroidism and repeated vaginal infections, or perhaps with the Mirena and repeated infections?
