How To Treat Cysts In 34 Weeks Pregnant Women?
Hello good evening doctor, I’m pregnant at 34 weeks. Within 2 weeks, I felt there was a lump in my vagina that often sat, squatted, or nungging like popped out of the vagina. It’s about the size of a quail egg, but it’s not sick or painful. The doctor diagnosed a cyst, I was worried that this cyst would hamper my labor, because the doctor did not give any action. Are there any suggestions for me, so that this cyst shrinks / disappears over a period of several weeks. Because I will do the labor process. I am worried that my delivery will be due to a cyst that covers my child’s birth canal
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Are you referring to a cyst as a Bartholin cyst? If what you mean is a Bartholin cyst, then you don't need to worry too much because the Bartholin cyst will not cover your birth canal and make you have to have a cesarean section during labor.
Bartholin cysts can occur due to a blockage in the outlet of the Bartholin gland. Bartholin glands are glands located on the right and left sides of the vaginal opening and have the function of producing mucus that lubricates the vagina. In most cases, Bartholin cysts do not require any therapy because they can disappear on their own when the blockage in the outlet of the Bartholin gland has disappeared. To help get rid of this blockage you can try to do a sitz bath, which is to soak your pubic area in warm water for 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times a day.
If indeed this cyst is large enough and causes symptoms that bother you, or if the cyst looks infected (becomes an abscess) so that it feels very painful, then the doctor can suggest an operation to empty the contents of the cyst / abscess. We recommend that you discuss with your obstetrician if indeed you experience these symptoms.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
