Will my ovarian cyst go away on it's own after a while?

Depends: Yes, most likely it will resolve if it is a simple cyst (filled with fluid) and is less than 4 cm. Many persist and cause no problems. Others grow and can cause pain. Avoid strenuous activities and rapid movements, especially twisting until the cyst resolves.
