User Profile
I get monthly vaginal cyst either before or after my menstrual cycle. I get very large cyst on the outside of my vagina and every other month I get ovarian cyst. I was on birth control to stop my menstrual and no cyst really came. I got tired of the no menstruates and stop taking pills. How can i resolve this problem naturally or surgically? This has been a monthly problem for 1 1/2 years and i tired with all these vaginal scars and lumps left after cyst come!

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Has the origin of the cysts been confirmed? If yes, discuss about surgical removal with your gynecologist. It might help with reducing the recurrences. Be in regular follow-up with your treating gynecologist with periodic ultrasound scans to monitor the growth of the cysts.
If there is infection found to be the cause, then get started on treatment, along with getting your partner treated to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
