In brief: Birth Control

Birth control pills can help supress your body's hormones, which can help with endometriosis.
However, this would not necessarily control ovarian problem, such as a cyst. Usually these can be seen with an ultrasound. Also, keeping a diary of symptoms can be very helpful with determining patterns - this can help you doctor figure out if this is hormonal, or something else.

In brief: Go back to your doc

The best thing to do is to go back to your doctor, and discuss your situation further. Birth control pills are often used to control menstrual pain associated with endometriosis, but if it's not helping, you need to find out the cause of your "burning ovary pain.
" i would think of further workup such as pelvic ultrasound and a referral to a gynecologist (unless your doctor is one).
