No: The simple answer is no. What gets rid of cysts is your body's natural healing. Having said that, sometimes women with cysts are placed on birth control pills (BCPs) so that their ovaries are not stimulated by hormones (FSH, LH) and are allowed to rest and heal. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is a type of progesterone (no estrogen component). BCPs have both progesterone and estrogen typically.
