    No, it will not cause ovarian cysts. It will shrink any existing ones and prevent new ones.

    If you are on birth control and still are having ovarian cysts you need to see a doctor. birth control is supposed to stop the productions of them.

    Birth control should prevent ovarian cysts however, when I was on a triphasic pill it did cause me to develope cysts.

    Source(s): A friend of mine has ovarian cysts and the doctor put her on birth control specifically for that.
