I'm taking birth control for an ovarian cyst and I'm going back in 4 months to check and see if it's gone. Will it make it go away?

I'm taking birth control for an ovarian cyst and I'm going back in 4 months to check and see if it's gone. Will it make it go away?

Ovarian Cyst: Ovarian cysts are actually quite common in premenopausal women. (The function of the ovary by nature is to produce cysts each month). BCPs do not make the cysts go away. They prevent ovulation, which allows the ovaries to "rest" while the cyst resolves on its own, and no further ones develop. Should be gone by this time. Good luck! ...Read more

I have ovarian cysts (5-8mm). Single oval shaped reddish brown colored thing discharged with this month period after taking orgamed 10mg. Was it a cyst?

During uterine bleeding, clots can form in the passing blood and will sometimes get some proteins on their surfaces making them look unusual. It is also possible that you saw a small piece of uterine lining tissue. An ovarian cyst cannot be passed through the uterus and vagina. ...Read more
