Hello Poppy,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Bartholin gland is a gland that normally produces vaginal lubricating fluid when having sex. This gland can become inflamed and then secrete excessively covered with cyst-shaped sacs, also called Bartholin cysts. Symptoms include a lump or swelling that appears on the right or left side of the vagina, which feels painful, warm to the touch, can even trigger fever and discomfort during sexual intercourse. Depending on the severity, treatment for this condition can be done simply by natural treatment (such as soaking in warm water), administering drugs (for example antibiotics, pain relief, and anti-inflammatory), marsupialisation (incision and drainage of cyst contents), to surgery (removal Bartholin's glands).


Bartholin cysts are formed due to inflammation which is mainly triggered by an infection that causes swelling and blockage in the outlet of the Bartholin gland. Some types of microorganisms that cause this infection are E. coli, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and so on. This infection is prone to enter the Bartholin gland through open wounds around the gland, one of which is due to mechanical trauma, for example during sexual intercourse, when masturbating, when you scratch excessively the genital area, when your genitals are rubbed excessively when cycling, and so on. This is what is meant by the term trauma.


If you experience a Bartholin cyst, we recommend that you consult your doctor or obstetrician directly so that treatment is given accordingly.


I hope this helps.
