How To Get Rid Of Blockages In The Bartholin’s Glands?
I have Bartholin’s blockage on both sides of the vagina. At first, it was on the left and I was given a prescription for antibiotics and anti-inflammatory when the cyst was painful. The recipe relieves pain and softens the cyst but it doesn’t go away completely, if you press the left vagina, you can still feel a muscle tightening. Since then, it often enlarges to the touch like grapes, but because it doesn’t hurt anymore, I ignore it.rn1 This month my right vagina is also experiencing the same characteristics. Even though it doesn’t hurt, since then the vagina feels dry and doesn’t want to get wet, but the fluid is stuck in the lump. I now often take hot baths to deflate the enlarged lump after intercourse. At first I ignored my cyst because it didn’t bother me, but now it’s disturbing my sexual quality.rnrnQ:rn1. Can suction with a syringe at the same time overcome a blocked gland? Because my cyst can deflate itself after a few days/after soaking but the vaginal fluid still can’t come out and causes lumps again.rnrn2. Why does treatment with a catheter tube have to be installed for days?rnrnWhat alternatives don’t leave scars/change shape?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bartholin's cyst is a disorder that forms due to blockage of the Bartholin's gland. Bartholin's glands are glands located on the left and right sides of the vaginal lips and function to secrete lubricating fluid during sexual intercourse. This condition can occur due to various things, including bacterial infection, irritation and inflammation.
Among the treatments for Bartholin's cysts that can be done are soaking in warm water, using antibiotics, pain medication, inserting a catheter, and Marsupialization of the cyst. For more details about this, you can click on the following link to our articles on Bartholin's Cysts and Bartholin's Gland Disorders.
In your case, it would be better if you go back to the gynecologist to see what causes recurring cysts on your genitals. Your doctor will later determine whether treatment in the form of suction with a syringe can solve your problem or not.
As for why the tube must be inserted for days, because to make sure there is no longer blocked fluid that makes the cyst re-form until you are declared fully recovered. Because if it's only temporarily installed even though you haven't healed yet, the cyst can form again and will be installed again later and this will actually increase the risk of the next infection.
An alternative that does not leave scars is of course a therapy that does not involve surgery, but in some cases, for the sake of healing, this is not an option. So, hopefully useful.
