If I do have an ovarian cyst, how is it removed?

Cyst Rx options. 1.) Oral contraceptive pill hormonal suppression. 2) Laparoscopic aspiration or cystectomy. 3) If the cyst is small, do nothing and wait for Mother Nature to remove by the next menstrual cycle.
It depends. It depends on the type of cyst. If it a follicle (ovulation) cyst it will go away on its own. If it does not go away within a month or two, it may need to be drained or removed, which can be done laparoscopically.
