There is no one single correct pill choice. Some clinicians feel that the lowest dose birth control pills
have a higher chance of allowing cysts to form in the ovaries and that a monophasic pill is a better choice. The main reason for going on a birth control pill when there is an ovarian cyst
is to prevent the development of other cysts. It is not really correct to say that the pill "makes" the cyst go away. The best bet is to communicate to your physician all of your concerns and then your doctor will recommend a pill that seems the best for that situation.
