Ovarian cyst and birth control

I started birth control 2 days before they saw i have 3 cm cyst. My question is - will the cyst still grow while on birth control?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Usually simple ovarian cysts get reduced or resolved if you are on birth control pills.Often we prescribe few courses of those pills as a treatment of simple ovarian cysts.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
