I had half of my ovaries removed due to ovarian cysts (dermoid on one ovary, water/chocolate cysts on the other one). I was 32 yrs old when the cysts were removed. I am now, 37 yrs old and experiencing mood swings, fever-like spells, and very heavy periods. I havent missed a period yet. I was told by my surgeon that I should start menopause within a couple of years after the surgery.
1. Is this peramenopause?
2. Are the vitamins Evening primrose and maca root, okay for me to take? They seem to be helping my mood swings.

Thank you
