I've been experiencing bartholin's Gland Cysts since October 2016. Originally the cyst would show up about 2cm in diameter (small), being slightly unfortable but never causing problems. It would eventually go away on it's own with sitz baths and massaging. Every time they went away they would return within 3 day which started to cause scaring within the gland wall.
My most recent one showed up on May 2, 2017 and on May 18, 2017 I ended up in emergency because it doubled in size and the labia was extremely swollen. It was definetly infected.
The emergnecy doctor that lanced the BG absess said that there was a small portion within the gland that shew was unable to squeeze out - a dense material. She placed a words catheter and told me to see the Gyneochologist and I have an appointment for June 8th, 2017. Has anyone experienced the hard material within the gland even though the BG was lanced and drained? What are the re-occurance rates for someone who's had reoccurring BG cysts on a regular basis?
