Varies: Some doctors try to make the ovaries rest. This can be done with birth control pills or hormone injections. If there is no ovulation there may be no cysts or smaller cysts that do not rupture.

Prevention: Once you have cysts you can't really make them go away faster. Best way is to prevent them, with ocps (birth control pills) or similar, like depotprovera.
