In brief: 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.

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