Customer Question

I have been trying to get pregnant and it was discovered I have an ovarian cyst and my dr. has reccomeded I take brith control (pill form)to get rid of it /rupture it. However, in researching this I have read that Estrogen which birth control contains is not good for cysts. Should I stop taking the birth control and try other more natural/home remedies to help resolve this cyst issue? Thank you

No ocp is recommended for such treatment and it will decrease the size of the cyst.estrogen and progesterone combination will inhibit ovulation and thus decrease the size of the cyst.
