Thanks for writing in.
Ovarian cyst is very common among the females. You should bother about it only if it causes problem with fertility or rupture or turn malignant.
Usually birthcontrol pills are given to treat same condition. sometimes combined pills do not give result so may be your doctor is trying only estrogen pill.

Ovarian cysts are self limiting and will resolve spontaneously.
So continue primulat-N . Weight reduction is also one of the main stem for treatment. Sometimes in later stages metformin can be used in treatment.

I hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubt, revert back.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
