Maybe: Studies have shown that because birth control pills decrease the chance of ovulation, they may also reduce the formation of new functional ovarian cysts. They will not make a cyst you have now go away any faster then without medication.

Possibly: Birth control pills usually will not assist in resolving ovarian cysts but may help in preventing new ones from developing.
