Bartholin Cyst And Tampon Use
Had a bartholin cyst drained about a 4 weeks ago, the dissolvable stitches are still in there. Can I use a tampon without disrupting them?
Stiches: Absorbable stiches normally come out before 4 weeks. Should be fine to use Tampon and the stiches could certainly be removed by this point I think if they bother you.
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Is a bartholin cyst ever going to go away on its own? Been a golfball size cyst for over a year... painless but. Obviously present.
I have an appt in the morning for bartholin cyst. If the Dr. Drains it, will she most likely place a cath? I really do not want it to recur.
Plugged duct: A Bartholin Gland Cyst forms when the duct that carries fluid from the gland to the outside world gets plugged. The fluid backs up making the gland swell. The gland can also become infected and form a Bartholin Gland Abcess. Best wishes!
Bartholin cyst: Bartholin cyst = A fluid-filled sack/ cyst with in the Bartholin's gland.
No: No does not need removal unless you are having symptoms (usually pain)
Leave alone: Leave alone and keep the area clean with soap and water - just continue to let the cyst drain
I had a bartholin cyst aspirated 2 weeks ago. It hurts a bit when I get turned on. Any idea what is happening?
Healing: As you become sexually aroused, the blood vessels in the vulva and vagina dilate. This can put some added pressure on any injured or healing area. The resulting discomfort in an area of recent cyst aspiration is not at all surprising. It will gradually disappear over the next couple of weeks, perhaps a little longer. If it persists more than 6 weeks, discuss with your doctor. Good wishes:)See 1 more doctor answer
In a week,: As long as no pain and it is healed up.
I believe I have a bartholin cyst or abscess its grown in the last week today the pain is so extreme I can barely walk what should I do?
Bartholin gland: Bartholin glands can become cysts then get infected and cause some pretty bad pain. I would recommend getting seen by your doctor ASAP or visiting an ER for evaluation. They're often treated with drainage and antibiotics, both of which can get you feeling back to normal soon.
My Bartholin cyst already popped and I was just wondering if I could put Neosporin on it for the pain? I am currently taking an oral antibiotic.
Bartholins cyst: Bartholins cysts take up to two weeks to heal. It will get better faster once it opens and drains and this often requires a doctor to make an incision. If you want to avoid that I would sit in warm water 2-3 times a day for 20 min and use warm compresses. I'm sorry, they can be quite painful.
Does Bartholin cyst just go away in time?? Does abscesses go away in time?? Can I put it cold compress??
Warm compresses: Warm compresses are better than cold to help the cyst drain. Bartholin's gland cysts sometimes go away on their own but sometimes they have to be surgically drained and packed in order to heal up. Any abscess that does not drain fully may need to be surgically opened and drained to resolve. If it is not resolving with warm soaks and compresses see a doctor.
I'm wondering if I have a Bartholin cyst or an ingrown hair? What's the difference? There's no pain but I don't see no hair that could be in it?
R/O BARTHOLIN CYST: It sounds like you may be describing inflammation of the BARTHOLIN gland just outside the vagina. This can result in cyst formation and abcess. You need a full exam /labs/STD SCREEN. You may require antibiotics and potential a surgical procedure please get prompt evaluation By internist or gyn.
I hAve a recurring bartholin cyst and am currently finishing my period. I have just noticed that I have spotting from the cyst. Is this normal?
See a doctor: Bartholin gland cysts / abscesses develop in approximately 2 percent of all women. Asymptomatic cysts in patients under age 40 may not require treatment, however, there are a number of vulvar + vaginal lesions that can mimic a cyst / abscess. Although vulvar cancer is rare, especially in a menstruating woman, a bleeding Bartholin cyst requires evaluation by your MD ASAP with a likely biopsy.
