4 cm ovarian cyst: There is no contraindication to clomid when having a "4 cm ovarian cyst" , unless the cyst was formed while taking other highly stimulatory medications for follicle production, and/or the estradiol levels are high as a result. Not every follicle actually bursts to produce an egg, in which case it slowly grows in size, but usually resolves (bursts) spontaneously. PCOS often produces these cysts.
