I have great news. I wanted to share with you that I am healed and cured from the Bartholins Cyst! For those of you who read my previous posts, you would have known that it came to a 'head' last week and started oozing out stuff. It was never much but I guess it's because there was nothing much in there although it was so big( size of a walnut with shell on, to be exact) and it became very hard. I continued to do the sitz bath with salt ( NOT epsom salt). Thank you to Jayneejay for suggesting regular table salt. I use sea salt and regular salt, whichever one I have at the time. The area where it burst has healed so now there is no discomfort when I sit, etc. The only thing I feel now is when I touch the area where the cysts was the hardest, it's still a little bit hard. Just a little bit. Everyday it's getting smaller and also where it burst is still discolored. I guess over time it will all blend in and look normal. Also, the entire left side(problem area) does not look the same as the right side. It kinda looks lopsided. I guess in time it will even out. Hey, I'm not complaining . If there's one thing I can advise to anyone who is dealing with this is first, patience, patience, patience. You must be consistent with the hot sitz bath. I think doing the sitz bath is what helped in that the cyst never getting infected or painful. I used many different things(you can read my previous posts) but I will continue to take the serrapeptase as a daily suppliment. I now take 2 capsules first thing in the mornings and with my beakfast I take 1 silica tablet and 1 vitamin D3. For the rest of the month I will do 1 sitz bath after my shower in the morning and 1 before bed. Moving forward, the week before my menstrual period, I will do 1 sitz bath per day as the 2 times I got the bartholins cysts were about a week or two before my period. I have also read on other blogs that some people made the connection between their menstrual cycle and when they got the bartholins cysts. I also want to point out that when you do the sitz baths/soaks you should try and get the salt water into your vagina. Jayneejay specifically mentioned that and I did. Before that I would just massage while soaking but I do think you should try and get the salt water in there and in my opinion, epsom salt is a waste of money. I had gone through many bags at $6.99 plus tax per bag and it did not help. The regular table salt or sea salt works.
Good luck to anyone who is still dealing with this dreadful thing. Don't give up and keep the faith. I also believe a healthy diet is important. (((HUGS))) to all and be well.
