Bartholin's cyst, which is the formation of a fluid-filled sac on the Bartholin's gland, can be caused by a variety of conditions, not only infection, but also injury. Normally, Bartholin's glands, which are located on the right and left sides of the vagina, function to produce vaginal lubrication, including during sexual intercourse. As a result of the formation of these cysts, there can be lumps on the right and / or left side of the vagina that cause discomfort, lumps, and pain. It could also, this cyst has a secondary infection so that it forms an abscess which causes the sufferer to also experience fever.
There are a variety of microorganisms that can cause and aggravate Bartholin's cysts. Some of the most common types are Escherichia coli, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and Chlamydia trachomatis. Due to its location which is very close to the urethra (urethral orifice), it is clear that the bacteria that cause infection in Bartholin's cysts can climb into the urinary tract and cause urinary tract infections (UTIs). This condition can be characterized by a variety of complaints, such as urinating more and less, pain when urinating, fever, nausea, abdominal pain, muscle and joint pain, chills, and so on.
To prevent this infection, people with Bartholin's cysts need to have their condition checked by a doctor directly. The doctor will evaluate whether the right treatment to do to treat this cyst. In some cases, no special treatment is needed, apart from improving vaginal hygiene and soaking in warm water. However, if there are signs of inflammation and infection that are severe enough, the doctor can prescribe several types of drugs (for example, antibiotics, painkillers, and anti-inflammatories), or perform surgery and marsupialization. Consult directly with a gynecologist to get the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
