Thanks for the query.

Treatment of ovarian cyst with the background of endometriosis depends on your menstrual cycle.
If your menstrual cycles are regular, there is no urgency to do Laparoscopy.
Usually cyst have a benign course and spontaneously disappear after 3 months with or without medical treatment.

I recommend you to take medications for 3 months. If cyst is growing in size associated with complications, only then go for Laparoscopy.

Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
