A member asked:

Can birth control help shrink ovarian cyst and ease menstrual pain?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

No and Yes: No, contraceptive pills do not help shrink existing ovarian cyst; they may prevent you from forming a "follicular cyst or a corpus luteum cyst" since they block your ovulation though. Yes, you can anticipate your "menstrual pain to be eased" by the hormones in the contraceptive pills
