Highly Variable: Bartholin Gland cysts tend to come and go. Sometimes they get large and have to b drained. In rare cases surgery is needed to remove the entire gland. Try soaking the area in hotish water several times a day and see if that helps. If not, you need to see a gyn. Best wishes!

How much time does it take for a Bartholin's cyst to heal?

Bartholin's: It depends? Was it infected? Drained? Did you have a catheter? Sometimes they never resolve, and other times, they resolve spontaneously over time. So that is a difficult question to answer without further information.
