I&D: Incision and drainage is the best way to treat a Bartholin's abscess. This should be done by your gynecologist. It can be done in the office or at the hospital.

Probably not!: Got me there! i din't think so, but there are no published papers suggesting that oral sex causes these cysts. There are factors asuch as diabetes, weight issues that are far more important!
