Marsupialization for Bartholincyst

Posted , 3 users are following.

I hope this helps you. 

So on 2015 - 2017 I kept getting Bartholin cyst to Bartholin cyst. From those years it was about 6 Bartholin cyst that were drained, I kidd you not. I was tired of having to go to the hospital and get it drained and then for it to come back. So when I was pregnant a really painful Bartholin cyst came out. My gynecologist told me he had to drain it. He did but eventually come back two days later. And yes I did do all those stuff like, hot cloth to calm it down, bath saltz , but to be honest that would make the Bartholin more painful. Anyways, so I go again to my gyn. That’s when he told me it was best if I had a Marsupialization procedure done so that the cyst won’t come back. Pregnant and all I had it done. Doctor told me that this will help and no cyst will grow. Just that the part of the gland was going to be opened. It hurt for like four days then it was like a not so painful feeling. It’s been 8months now and I feel good . No cyst to worry about. And probably you would be like, “ what about when you want intimacy or whatever? Does it hurt? Or what???.” No, Not at all. Or “how much did you wait to have sex?” I waited a whole month until it was healed. “ What did you take for the pain?” Doctor gave me some painkillers. 

But yeah! Everything so far is great.

 I hope this helps anyone who is going through this.

    I had one for a year, it only

    Started to hurt last week Thursday. Sitz baths the whole year, tea tree oil, Whitby hazel nothing worked. Started doing tea tree oil and which hazel Friday, Yesterday I got admitted to the hospital. While waiting it was so painful, then all of a sudden the pain was gone. And I was wet. The cyst was draining. I live in Canada so free surgeries, I got marsupialization done to prevent it from filling up again. Surgery was cake. No pain after just slight discomfort and I can pee normal. 1st day post op. I’d recommend getting the surgery done it relieved the pressure and the pain mind u it was draining Its self.  I’d say likely the mix of 4-5 sitZ baths and tea tree and which hazel for 3 days helped.
