Hallo Hubby
Polycystic ovaries as a condition is not curable but definitely manageable. It does not cause ovarian cancer. Mirena will take away her menstruation but may cause ovarian cysts so I wonder why she suggested this? They usually treat this with a contraceptive which is antiandrogen like Diane?
