Ovarian cyst of that size is not uncommon and I do not think those antibiotics for this cyst. What were your symptoms and what was the diagnosis by ER doctor?

If the test to determine the size of the ovarian cyst was an ultrasound , and if the cyst was not described as "complex", the cyst may resolve by spontaneous rupture. If it was a "complex" cyst, see a GYN physician, who may suggest a biopsy and/or removal of the cyst. The use of antibiotics will only treat infectious causes, and not spontaneous causes of cyst formation.
