Doc I have a Bartholin cyst and it’s already an abscess. I want to get scared. Because I’m pregnant, I’m natural for my cyst.

Hello Titin,


Thank you for the question.

Bartholin's glands in the vaginal lips normally produce the lubricating fluid during sexual intercourse. However, due to blocked outlet, these glands can form cysts. Not infrequently, this cyst can also be infected secondary to form an abscess. Bartholin gland cysts and abscesses can cause complaints that are very disturbing for women, for example swelling, pain, odor around the genitals, even fever, chills, urination disorders, muscle and joint pain, and so on.


Handling of Bartholin cysts may be done simply by conservative therapy, namely by soaking in warm water, improving personal hygiene, lots of rest, lots of drinking, limiting sexual relations, and given several types of drugs. However, if an abscess has already occurred, naturally more invasive treatment is needed. The goal is that the infection in your Bartholin gland does not spread to other areas. Although performed during pregnancy, provided that for clear medical indications and performed by professional medical personnel, surgery to treat Bartholin's gland abscess is often not dangerous.


Better, you discuss this directly with your doctor or obstetrician, yes. He who knows your health condition directly is certainly more understanding of the treatment that needs to be done to overcome your condition.


I hope this helps.
