Discussions that mention tylenol

Women's Health board

I was recently diagnosed with an ovarian cyst that is approx 6.86 cm in diameter. The Dr is treating it with ortho-tricyclen...birth control medication...in hopes that it will help the cyst "shrink up" and stop causing problems.

Has anyone here been treated in the same way? Any idea how long it takes until the cyst "shrinks"? I am in pain. Not excruciating, but quite aggravating, and have been prescribed vicodin to take in the evening just before bed so I can sleep. Otherwise, it's just tylenol and deal with it, which is driving me crazy!
