In brief: Yes

Ovarian cysts are normal to have; it's one of these cysts that will rupture to release an egg which is called ovulation.
We get concerned if you have too many, too little or if they're solid depending on pt's age. If you are are 23, birth control pills are best, unless they are large or cause significant pain, which in that case, laparoscopic surgery is an option.

In brief: Observation

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.
