Big : The normal follicle around the time of ovulation is about 2 cm, so 7 cm is not normal. 7 cm is about the size of a baseball. You need to follow up and make sure it goes away.

Cyst affecting ovulation what should i do?

Wait: Most cysts do not affect ovulation. The only time they do is when they produce hormones. I would wait one cycle and see if it goes away. If it is a simple cyst it should not cause any problem after 1 month. Sometimes a birth control pill may help it go away for 1 month
