Patience: It is normal for the ovaries to form cysts. Every woman has an ovarian cyst about 2 centimeters in diameter at the time of ovulation. That cyst may enlarge to as much a 6 or 8 centimeters before gradually going away. On rare occasion one of these cysts may cause enough pain to require treatment (medical or surgical). For the majority of these cysts - time /patience is the only treatment needed.

No treatment: It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring. Most are cysts which develops from tissue that changes in the normal process of ovulation. They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks.
