In brief: Cyst prevention
The ovaries are supposed to be cysts, probably you are asking b/c of pain issues.
It is unlikely that these cysts are the source of your pain unless they are over 5cm(2.2 inches). You need to see a gyn who treats pelvic pain (http://pelvicpain.Org/) to rule out other conditions - most commonly interstital cystitis. If u r making large cysts then you probably have pcos and wt loss would help.

Birth control prevents egg development and can help prevent ovarian cysts but some people will still get cysts with birth control.
