Mirena - hormonal cysts

Hi Doc, I''m 38 and had the mirena inserted 10 months ago. I now suffer from painful cysts on both ovaries (which does not seem to " go away" ). My gynae suggested a laparoscopy and if not successful, the removal of the mirena.

What do you suggest? Thank you.

The laparoscopy seems reasonable. I am not sure that the Mirena would be causing the cysts, but failing everything else, you could have it removed.
Best wishes
