Bartholin cyst HELP!!!
mlandon2 posted:
I had surgery on a bartholin cyst five years ago and no problems at all. I was married two months ago and was a virgin. I was already having issues with sex since it was painful. Now my cyst is back. I had it drained 5 days ago and its back already. I have done the baths and hot compress. I also tried a homeopathic remedy using tea tree oil, calamine lotion, and witch hazel. I am desperate. Having it lanced last week was the most traumatizing experience of my life. Simply going to the gyno makes me nervous and I cry. Thinking about the event makes me cry, the fact that I cannot be intimate with my brand new husband makes me cry. I just feel so lost, and I am hoping that someone has advice or something I can do. I do not want to go through surgery again, that alone was awful the first time. PLEASE HELP!

I know it hurt when you had it lanced open but having delt with this before and leaving it alone I ended up getting MRSA. I would recomened you get to a Doctor ASAP to have it lanced open they might be able to numb the area first then put packing in so it stay's open.
