hi i had a bartholine cyst but its not infected, i dont feel any pain, it doesnt bother me, b/c its getting smaller and no pain at all, should i drain it or just wait.. ?sometimes it get big after sex but still no pain. and after couple of days it goes away.. help pls.
i think that this is a cyst inside of your vagina. i also think that this is a blockage of the gland that secretes the fluid that makes your vagina wet. i am not sure how you would "drain" it, but i would think that since it's still getting bigger after sex, it is indicative that it is still clogged somewhat.
now from all the junk i don't know, my advice is going to be worth poo, but, how about this. just sit in a warm bath 2 or 3 times a day for 20 minutes or so and i'm betting your problem will be over. it sounds like your body is trying to get rid of the problem on it's own, but it may need a couple of hot baths to push it over the edge to being cured.
just my stab at helping you. i hope it works and you feel better!
I've dealt with Bartholin Cysts for years now. I only get them on one side, the left side. It is very easy for me to relieve them and I hope this will work for you too if you get Bartholin Cysts.
Just use your fingers to locate the "grape-like" cyst.
(You can lay down or sit on the toilet to do this. Perhaps taking one of those sitz baths before hand will help too, but I have never had to do that part.)
Take one or more fingers and press on the "grape-like" ball till it's holding still and secure, then continue to slowly press a bit harder, keeping constant pressure on it.
Then, increase your pressure on it till you feel this little teeny tiny sting inside your labia (you have success when you feel that!)........and then suddenly all of this clear mucousy liquid will come pouring out (it is the same stuff that you see when you have sex and your body lubricates itself when you get wet), but keep your pressure on the "grape" and walk your fingers over it to make sure you have gotten all of the liquid out. FYI....Sorry to be graphic, just want to help anyone out there with this issue.....but it is so easy to press on your Bartholin cyst to release the liquid inside, even my boyfriend has learned how to press on it and the extra lubrication that comes out is helpful for sex. Not trying to gross anyone out, just saying how easy, helpful and useful this remedy is!!!
If you still feel a little bump in there afterwards, do another round of the stabilizing with the fingers and then put the pressure on. You may feel like there is still a tiny (about the size of a pea) bump after you release the liquid, but I find that sized one can usually go away on it's own after I do this at home remedy.
This technique works great for me for several years, Hope this can help someone else out there! Good luck!
PS, I never had any type of infection that had strange foul odor, nor any type of strangely colored or bloody secrection. If you do have anything remotely different than clear odorless liquid... then you REALLY need to see your doctor.
