Am I following correct treatment plan for endometriosis +Ovarian Chocolate Cyst?

I went in for an ultrasound the other day and came back with very shocking news. My doctor immediately said I have endometriosis, seedling fibroids and a cyst in each ovary. The cyst in the left ovary is smaller and no cause for concern as it can be treated with medication. Th right ovarian cyst is apparently 6cm, and is referred to as a chocolate cyst. She suggested that surgery be done for this cyst but due to limited amount of time before having to return to university, I won't be able to. This surgery could possibly happen as soon as I'm back. In the meantime, she prescribed me Visanne, as well as a COC for afterwards to continue stopping my period as I cannot bleed and risk making the cyst bigger. I've just read the side effects and leaflets for each medication, but they're scaring me and I truly don't know if what I'm doing is right? Any assistance would be most appreciated please. I don't want to suffer from side effects or have any heavy bleeding.

I'm sorry you're going through this. I'm not familiar with Visanne except that it's a progestin such as what's used in birth control pills. Whatever you decide, I hope it works out for you.
