Cysts and contraceptive pill

Postby Buttons » Thu Sep 24, 2015 3:06 pm

Does anyone know if the contraceptive pill stops cysts from forming?
If it does, does that mean that the cysts that were there would go away??

I had scans done on my ovaries after I had been on the pill for 6 months, would this make a difference?

Not sure about 6 months, but after 5 years on Dianette my ovaries appeared normal on scan. Now 12 months off it and the Left appears normal but the right is polycystic again and also has a 4cm Ovarian Cyst which is causing me pretty horrid symptoms.
