Hi Doctor, I am 25 yrs old and unmarried. last month i had a ultrasound and it was found i am having a right ovarian cyst of size 6.0cms * 4.7cms. Gynec has suggested to take Femilion tablets and Folygel DHA for 3 months. And later if the size of the cyst is not reduced, she has advised to go for an laproscopic surgery to remove the cyst.But i came to know that Femilion is a birth control pill and i am not sure if its advisable to take such tablets. I am very afraid of its side effects. Please guide me in this.

HI, hormonal pills are given for functional cysts of the ovary which may respond to hormones. These cysts are usually less than 5 cm in size. Although your cyst is a larger in size, a trial of birth control pills can be given. But if it does not subside then laparoscopic aspiration or cyst removal can be done. Consult your Doctor. Take care and good luck.
