Will not work

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I understand your health concerns and anxiety about it.
No dear, novelon will not work at this stage and you will have to bank on emergency contraception only.
In my opinion you should start novelon from next cycle which will help in cyst resolution too.
