In brief: Depends

Sometimes you just watch and repeat the ultrasound after the next period.
Sometimes i may drain them in the office if they are persistent. Sometimes they may grow and cause pain and require surgical removal. It generally depends on the size, patients age, symptoms, etc. A cyst can affect fertility but usually does not.
