In brief: Birth Control Pills

If you have recurring cysts, suppression of ovulation is the best treatment.
This is best achieved with birth control pills but only your doctor can determine which treatment is best for you.

In brief: See below.

Options are treatment of ovarian cysts may include watchful waiting, birth control pills or surgery.
Many cyst resolve on their own. Bcp's may reduce the chance of new cyst developing in the future. Surgery may be elected if the cyst is growing or persisting over a few menstrual cycles or have certain appearances on ultrasound.
