In brief: Varied

For the pain of a current ovarian cyst, over the counter pain medicines and occasionally prescriptions are necessary.
Toward prevention, i suggest regular exercise, limiting processed foods, carbs, artificial sweeteners, and caffeine in your diet. If these are unsuccessful, you may want to discuss w your doctor the option of taking hormonal therapy like birth control to ovulation and thus cysts.

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.
