Talk to your Dr: Large ovarian cysts are not to be taken lightly. If it truly was from the stimulation then despite its size it mighty go away on its own. Suppression with ocs or progestins might be of benefit. At that size however, a cystectomy might be needed if the suppression and time fail.If surgery is needed, it can hopefully be done laparoscopically (mis) to make recovery easier and decrease scar potential.
