Functional cyst and fertility

I’m 44 and been on this horrific fertility journey still hoping for a miracle. I’ve had ivf and a couple of Letrozole cycles. I have 2 functional cysts on my right ovary (one is new in last period, the other is over a year old) . During egg collection in December during ivf, they did drain the cyst but it’s either refilled or it’s another one. The treatments have resulted in a functional cyst which means I can’t do any treatment until they go and I’m running out of time to try and get pregnant as have odd hot flashes, weight gain and insomnia which I think are periomenopause.

I also have a small endometrioma on right ovary that has been stable for 10 plus years and fibroids.

Any one able to recommend remedy for most importantly the ovarian cysts? I would love remedies for everything else I’ve mentioned but the cysts and fertility is biggest thing now.

No fear in dark
Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth being here with all the bad things in my life but I’ve never thought about actually of committing suicidal and never would.

What is the effect of consolation on you? Depends who it’s from. From husband I feel a bit better or less alone.

Aversion/desire to music?

When I’m feeling very anxious, stressed, tired or unwell do not like loud noise or music and prefer quiet or tv on low especially in evening. In car, daytime, sometimes like music.

Any history of Venereal Diseases (e.g – Gonorrhoea , Syphllis, , AIDS.)?

None of the STIs. I have had cold sores though. Used to get as child when unwell. As adult have had only few when very unwell or severely rundown or trauma. I did get something like a cold sore on my thumb knuckle last year.
I also had some small warts on my left hand fingers this year. Had treatment to get rid of. Seen a couple very small ones coming again.
