No, I don't believe birth control pills have anything to do with the development of cysts. I was on the Pill off and on for years and never had any problems but my friend, who was never on the Pill, has had problems with them for years.

Actually, it could be the other way around. I have problems with cysts, starting when I was a teenager. After a few cysts, the doctor finally put me on the pill to regulate my hormones and cut down on the cysts. I didn't have any problems until I stopped taking it. The problems started again and after a few years, I decided to go back on the pill. Haven't had any problems since then. Of course, don't take my word for it. You should talk to your doctor about it and see what they say.
