I'm 24 years old and already experincing my 2nd bartholin cyst/abscess Monday night I knew something was wrong... I was barely swollen but I was tender when I touched the area of where my gland is. My first experience with a bartholin cyst was tramatizing. I spent days in bed and not even being able to use the restroom. As soon as I noticed that something wasn't right this time I rushed to the ER, long story short I got put on Zeflex and pain medication. I've been doing a sitz bath 4 times a day 15 minutes each time since tuesday. I feel like it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I went to my doctors appointment today and they didn't want to drain it since it was "soft" so they sent me home and told me to come back in a week but to keep taking the antibiotic. I guess I just don't have much hope that this is going to go away without it being drained. Also the doctor said I was a good candidate for marsupialization surgery, if anyone can give me their experiences on that I would greatly appreciate it . Also any advice of home remedies that anyone has tried or experienced please let me know. I'm willing to try anything that can help me at this point.
