Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Birth control pills may be helpful to regulate the menstrual cycle, prevent the formation of follicles that can turn into cysts, and possibly reduce the size of an existing cyst.  It's important to discuss her symptoms and any questions you might have due to her surgery with her doctor.

Here are some resources for you
