Ovarian cysts: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) helps to shrink ovarian cysts (functional cysts). Usually the cysts will go away within 1-3 months. If you develop new cysts, your doctor may place you on birth control. Treatment of ovarian cysts depend on your age, size of cysts, your period, and symptoms., Most cysts are benign in women of childbearing age.
