Depends: Sometimes you just watch and repeat the ultrasound after the next period. Sometimes i may drain them in the office if they are persistent. Sometimes they may grow and cause pain and require surgical removal. It generally depends on the size, patients age, symptoms, etc. A cyst can affect fertility but usually does not.

Watchful waiting: Wat in many cases you can wait and be re-examined to see if the cyst goes away on its own within a few months. This is typically an option regardless of your age if you have no symptoms and an ultrasound shows you have a small, fluid-filled cyst. Your doctor will likely recommend that you get follow-up pelvic ultrasounds at periodic intervals to see if your cyst has changed in size.
