Thanks for your query.
Follicular cyst is most common type of ovarian cyst. It is formed in a follicle that fails to release egg due to hormonal failure.It is benign and dose not cause any harm unless it ruptures and superimposed by infection.
Primolut N contains synthetic hormone norethisterone used in menstrual disorders, it dose not cure cysts but it may help to prevent cyst formation in future.
Treatment of cyst depends on its size and its persistency. Usually follicular cyst resolves within 3 months. Surgical intervention may be need for larger and persistent cysts.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
