I've had a Bartholin's cyst for over 6 months is this normal ? Should i ask to have it removed?

"Cyst" down pain: Bartholin persistent cysts/infections usually become a pain where one "sits down". If that is the case, then a gyn md can remove the cyst via a marsupialization procedure or drainage if its an infection. Six months is a long time for putting up with this problem so "stand up" and get care.

Bartholins Cyst: That amount of bleeding seems excessive after a procedure like that. You should be contacting the person who performed the procedure.
