Cysts and HBC

Gah!  So, I'm ditching my beloved pill Errin (norethindrone minipill) due to possible ovarian cysts in favor of something with estrogen in it as well.  My doctor admitted she's no expert on pills but gave me an Ocella (generic Yasmin - ethinyl estradiol/drospirenone) prescription, but my pharmacist said I'd need my potassium levels checked periodically due to the amount of ibuprofen I take, which the drospirenone messes with.  So, I'm on the search for a different ovary-happy pill to ask my Doc for that has higher estrogen but a different progestin (if I'm understanding what I need correctly).

Has anyone used a pill to calm ovarian cysts that worked particularly well for them?
