Hi Ladies,

I am currently fighting a walnut size bartholin cyst and have been doing sitz baths with and without salt, I recently tried the turmeric and oil remedy, it did not work, and I just tried Phoebe's remedy to no success...yet.

However, I developed a red dime size blotch on the cyst. No sure if its irritated or what's the reason for this and it has now shot my anxiety through the roof.

Any of you lovely ladies encounter something like this?

Any tips and experiences will help this helpless girl!

    Hello that is your soft spot created by the sitz baths. This is where it will start to drain. Put a hot towel on it and it should drain.

    Hi Andrea I’ve been suffering with these Bartholin Cyst for years I’ve been to several doctors and all the say is it’s just a common thing that happens to very few women. I guess were the few women. Mine come back every 6 months  my very first was the most painful one and the largest.  That was in 2015.  Now  my doctors  are Suggesting surgery. That’s the last thing on my list. Every time they come back I get it drained. I’ve only had one to come in go down on it’s on. I’m strongly thinking about surgery now. Because me and my husband are trying to conceive. And I don’t want nothing getting in the way of that. You should go talk to your obgyn in get to the bottom of it hun.

      Hi Narissa,

      This is actually my 2nd cyst. The first one was back in 2010 and now that this happened to me its bringing back bad memories. I forgot what this pain felt like til' two days ago.

      Is the surgery the procedure when they will be removing your glands for good? Have you tried taking vitamins or drinking teas to see if any will help prevent them?

      I'm wondering if this is heredity or just bad luck! Hope we can find a cure for this once and for all!
