Ovarian Cysts: First choice is Metformin, 500 mg three times daily. Also try the herb Berberine, 500 mg three times daily. Topical Progesterone cream, 20-60 mg per day may help. Some use progesterone cream daily--others prefer to "cycle" to mimic normal rhythms (apply days 10-24 of the menstrual cycle).

Observation: we usually treat ovarian cyst with observation unless they are causing pain, or a pressure symptoms like on the bladder or the colon or the ureter. we explore them if they were not a pure cyst,like complex cyst, or a suspicious of solid pattern in the complex. or it is getting large too fast.or if there is any suspicion of malignancy. the exploration usually by laproscopy.
