I've pretty much read all the forums and scoured the entire internet. This is my 3rd cyst in 12 mo the but the first time I felt no pain. When I first noticed the bump on my left labia I panicked, remembering the horrendous pain I had been through just I the before. The NHS waiting times were just too long and I couldn't afford to go private. I tried everything (phoebes remedy, sitz baths, massages, magnesium sulphate paste, etc.) the cyst remained the size of a large grape for 4weeks. I'm not sure if it was simply a matter of patience or it was the actual supplements I took but I swear on either serappeptase or silica complex but I took both (exceeding the recommended intake of one a day. I immediately noticed a difference, though very small, the next couple of days. I took it three times a day, if you can avoid having sex I'd advise it...but I struggled not to and this probably set me back a few days. Anyway...its 99% gone now !

    I'm so glad it worked for you. These are no fun!!!! Sex set me back as well. Soreness for days but if you wait it's worth it. I hope everyone can get this silica complex and have it work too!

      It's the absolute worst, I was actually depressed. Worst thing is no one understands. Even when it's painless. I never ever comment online but I fixed mine with help from strangers so anything I can do to help I will!

    I tried all the above including serrapetase, silica and biotin but after my 5th abcess I had to just accept that if the cyst is infected, none of those things would do the job. I am now 6 weeks post-marsupulisation and still not quite out the woods (despite intensive antibiotics)...due to see the consultant tomorrow so hoping she has a plan B sad

      I feel like there is no actual proven solution 😢 everything is a hit and miss. I had a marsupialisation last June and was recovered and on holiday 3days after

      Do you know if your gland was removed? I was back at work on the Monday (had it done on a Thursday) , just don't understand why it continues to weep (TMI!). I've been on 2 lots of antibiotics post-op and 7 lots pre-op...not sure I have any 'good bacteria' left in my bod after that lot! Hey ho...will see what the consultant says tomorrow, glad you had success though smile
