I had a barlothin cyst a few years ago and was treated, do I have to worry about passing any STDs to another person?

I had a barlothin cyst a few years ago and was treated, do I have to worry about passing any STDs to another person?

No: If the only problem you have had was that cyst years ago and it was treated, there is no lingering infection or any problem from that. The bigger question is if you have had any unprotected sexual activity in the ensuing years that would have exposed you to other STD's and whether any of these would be transmissible to another person. If you have questions, get an exam done to make sure you're OK. ...Read more

What causes a barlothin cyst my pap tested negative for STDs, should I still be worried I may give my partner any std? I guess im going crazy

Bartholin duct cyst: The Bartholin's glands are small fluid secreting glands that moisten the outer vaginal region. They connect to the surface via small ducts. If the duct becomes blocked, the fluid backs up and a cyst forms. Bartholin's cysts can become infected, sometimes from an STD. The cysts themselves do not cause the infection, and an uncomplicated Bartholin's cyst is not infectious. ...Read more

After sex I have intense burning. The condoms are lubricated. He is worried I may be allergic to latex, I am worried I have more cysts. No STD's?

Allergy? Yeast?: No "cysts" would cause burning of this sort. If it occurs immediately after sex, your partner may be on the right track, i.e. chemical irritation or allergy. Latex could do it, or lubricant with the condom, especially if it contains spermicide like nonoxynol-9. Maybe yeast infection. Try polyurethane condoms, no spermicide. If it persists or to check "cysts", see your doctor. Get STD tested. ...Read more

2 cm ovarian cyst, left hydosalpinx. Gyn treated with antibiotics. Will it go away? Never had std, why did it occur in the first place?

Hydrosalpinx: Pelvic inflammatin can occur with non STD bacteria as well and is typically less severe than the type associated with an STD. In addition, some women have been exposed to chlamydia and took an antibiotic that treated it without knowing it. This is called silent chlamydia.

Was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid and cysts on both ovaries. I'm having a white smelly watery discharge with no STDs. Is this typical?

SoundsJustYummyToMe: No, this is not expected, pleasant or comfortable, let alone "typical."Sure, changes in your anatomy and/ or the influence of hormones can cause a few "interesting" effects but, assuming you haven't been horseback riding naked for the last two weeks with no bath in-between, I'd guess that a white, smelly discharge should be investigated by your GYN, STD or no STD in the past --find out what's-up now. ...Read more
