You are correct that you should have your next period in the 4th week after starting the patch. I also agree with your doctor's management, the next step being to look for polyps. It is reasonable to try the patch for 3 months first.
While fibroids and heavy periods can run in families, if you have no cysts, I don't think that you should worry about this now.
The patch can predispose to increased pigmentation on the face, which can be worsened by the use of a sunbed.
