Bartholin Gland Cyst
Bartholin's cysts are common and often occur in women of childbearing years. A cyst forms when the Bartholin's gland is blocked and the gland becomes inflamed just within each side of the lower part of the opening of the vagina. A small, non-infected Bartholin's cyst may not be noticeable unless it grows.
A Bartholin's cyst is not an infection, although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage. Fluid may accumulate when the opening of the Bartholin's gland becomes obstructed due to an infection or injury. In this case it often becomes red and painful when touched. An abscess may form if the cyst becomes infected. There is no dedicated known reason for their development although stress can be a factor. With an abscess, a bacterial infection is the cause, but it is usually not an STD. Cysts are not sexually transmitted.
The lest invasive treatment of a Bartholin cyst are sitz baths and compresses. However, it is always recommended that you seek out professional medical advice especially if the cyst becomes inflamed, painful or last longer than a couple of weeks.
