Conservative treatment can be done in case of ovarian cyst if the size of cyst is less than 5 cm and not complicated. But follow up has to be done routinely.OCP like NOVELON or OVRAL-G (NOT LOW ESTROGEN) is best for you.You complete at least 6 cycles and then do a scan to review.
No other medication is needed other than ocp.An ovarian cyst of size1.7 by 1.2 cm by1.6 cm is not an emergency condition.Such a small cyst may disappear without treatment also.
Thank you again
Have a nice day
Ovary contains a large number of oocytes of which one is maturated for ovulation in each cycle and this is continued till the reserve of oocytes and ultimately exhausted and menopause occurred.In each cycle a group of oocytes are recruited and one them will be dominated for maturation to form Grafian follicle.The fully mature grafian follicle prior to ovulation measures about 20 mm.After ovulation the ruptured follicle converted to corpus luteum.Other oocytes which were recruited but not dominated of size 5 to10 mm become atresic.These follicles sometimes make small cysts under abnormal hormonal regulation and can form follicular cyst or corpus luteal cyst.These all can be found by trans vaginal ultra sonography.
As your ultrasonologist is not sure about whether it is graffian follicle or an ovarian cyst with solidity(septed with internal debris) so recommended chemical follow up.
This is done by tumor marker like CA125, M-CSF,OVXI,HER-2/NEU.,
The only natural way to prevent ovarian tumor or cyst is to conceive.
Ovarian tumor is common in nulliparous and unmarried.

Thnks for your reply and for acceptance of my answer.
By the last line what I wanted to say is
Increase chance of ovarian tumor is found in women who never conceived (nulliparous) and also in unmarried(considering never conceived)
It is due to the fact that ovulation is ceased during the time the woman is pregnant.
More and more ovulation ,more chance of ovarian tumor.
