After dealing with a bartholin gland cyst for 2 weeks and it being extremely uncomfortable the past 3 days (the same time I had gotten my period), I went to a naturopathic doctor today who drained my cyst. She first numbed me with lidocaine and then inserted a large needle to drain the pus. A large amount came out. I felt a lot of it as I was not entirely numb, it pinched and almost felt like a bee sting on my vagina. I now have relief but am scared for the next process. I was advised to see my primary care for the removal of the sac as they were not surgeons and could not do this procedure. Is this the marsupilization that I have been reading about on this forum? What is the procedure? How much does it hurt? Are they removing the gland or just the capsule in which the cyst formed? Is there a chance of recurrence?
My doctor gave me probiotics and a tincture to build up my immunity. I'm praying none of us ever have to go through this again! Also, what are some ways you all have prevented another cyst from coming back? Did you make any changes in your sex life? My husband and I had not shaved in quite some time and I think this caused the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Never again! Please let me know if you have any advice for this next step
