Ovarian Cysts Prevention


Ovarian cysts are common and are usually painless and benign. Doctors do not routinely recommend preventive interventions. Birth control pills may help you if the cysts keep coming back. Taking birth control pills for more than five years has also been shown to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.

The best way to catch cysts early is to:

  • Tell your doctor about any changes in your monthly cycles or periods.
  • Report pelvic and abdominal pain.
