In brief: Patience vs. Surgery
Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks.
Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences. If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer.

In brief: Sometimes
Ovarian cysts can be physiological/cyclical and of no clinical significance especially if solitary and small.
If multiple and present on the periphery of the ovaries, then it is poosible that you have high androgens (i.E testosterone) in which lifestyle changes +/- medication can help.
