No: That would be like saying that pimples cause acne. Complex ovarian cysts may be one of several manifestations of polycystic ovarian syndrome (pco). Others can include few (or no) periods, hair growth on the face/body, weight gain, dark patches on the neck and underarms, and higher blood sugars.
