Lightbulb Ovarian Cyst while on the pill?


I've quite recently had an abdominal and pelvic CT scan (for other reasons), which revealed that I have an ovarian cyst on the left side. I don't know about its size etc. The reporting radiologist is unconcerned and feels its physiologic, meaning normal. I have an ultrasound at the end of this month to check on it. Hopefully it'll have disappeared by then!

My question really is, is it still possible to develop ovarian cysts even when I've been on the pill (yasmin/celeste) for nearly the last five years (no breaks) and previously? My ovaries shouldn't be functioning so can a cyst still occur?

Thanks for reading!

Best wishes,
