2 different issues: A Bartholin’s cyst does not require any treatment until it becomes infected. People can live with them for years and years. The mons cyst needs a diagnosis. An Obgyn needs to see it to determine what it is and what might be causing it before we can offer any suggestions. If the mons cyst if visible clearly then consider a virtual visit for a preliminary analysis Read more

Bartholin Cyst: Needs to be seen, opened, drained and a catheter placed to complete the drainage and help with proper healing so it doesn't reoccur. Find someone who you can be comfortable with. These are professionals who look at your problem, not you. All the best. Keep the area clean in the shower 1-2 times a day. Your doctor may also choose to put you on an antibiotic. Read more

10 years, multiple bartholin gland cysts on both sides. Left is now constantly secreting clear sticky fluid. What is happening? I've never seen this.

Bartholins: They need to be incised and drained with a catheter placed, to allow continuous drainage until the cyst is empty, then closure of the opening over several weeks. These cysts can reoccur. If so will need a procedure called marsupialization Read more

My right submandillar gland has been swollen for about a month now, what that mean? I had a couple of cyst near my bartholin gland but they went away

Swelling: I suspect that the swollen mass under your jaw may not be associated with the cysts near your vagina. If this is a submandibular lymph node it could be related to inflammation or infection. Read more

How common is it for chlamydia to cause Bartholin’s cyst? Tiny pea size and painless for four weeks boyfriend passed three STD tests over 7 months

Common: Chlamydia does not cause Bartholin's cyst, but can infect a pre-existing cyst, not common. You have a painless tiny pea size Bartholin's cyst and you do not have any discharge and your boyfriend test negative, so no chance of getting it infected. Read more

Chlamydia &gonorrhea; got shotfor BV & 1 dose 4 pills of azithromycin. Sex 6 days after treatment & got Bartholin cyst- am I still contagious/infected?

Chlamydia &gonorrhea; got shotfor BV & 1 dose 4 pills of azithromycin. Sex 6 days after treatment & got Bartholin cyst- am I still contagious/infected?

Stop sex, see MD: The shot (probably ceftriaxone) was for gonorrhea, not BV. Bartholin gland infection can be caused by gonorrhea, chlamydia, BV bacteria, and others. You shouldn't be having sex with these problems until all symptoms cleared up. Return to your doctor for re-evaluation and probably additional antibiotics (s). Partner also needs treatment if not yet done. Good luck! Read more

Surgery: Removing the gland is the definitive answer to your problems. If the gland is removed then you can't have another cyst. I'm so sorry you're suffering through this and hope the next surgery is the last you'll have to bear with this troublesome gland. Read more

How long does it usually take for one dose of 1, 000 mg Azithromycin to clear up a RECTAL Chlamydia infection? I still have minor symptoms 11 days later after taking Azithromycin. Should I re-check?

How long does it usually take for one dose of 1, 000 mg Azithromycin to clear up a RECTAL Chlamydia infection? I still have minor symptoms 11 days later after taking Azithromycin. Should I re-check?

Seven days: You should not have sex again until you and your sex partner (s) have completed treatment. If your doctor prescribes a single dose of medication, you should wait seven days after taking the medicine before having sex. If your doctor prescribes a medicine for you to take for seven days, you should wait until you have taken all of the doses before having sex. I think you should get rechecked. Read more

Do women usually have successful pregnancies after a chlamydia infection or do you always become infertile if not treated for a long time?

Do women usually have successful pregnancies after a chlamydia infection or do you always become infertile if not treated for a long time?

SOME DO: Chlamydia may enter the female genital tract and cause injury & scaring to the sensitive fallopian tubes or worse. If an infection is detected prior to damage & treated effectively, the problems can be minimized and natural pregnancy can occur. With todays tech a willing couple can harvest eggs, fertalize & implant embryos, bypassing the tubes. Expensive but possible Read more

I've taken 2 Azithromycin 500mg tablets for my diagnosed Chlamydia infection. How long do I have to wait until it's safe to have sex again?

I've taken 2 Azithromycin 500mg tablets for my diagnosed Chlamydia infection. How long do I have to wait until it's safe to have sex again?

A week, usually: Standard advice is to wait a week, and until any synmptoms have completely cleared up -- which also takes about a week. For sure no sex with new partners before then. However, if you and your partner have both been treated for chlamydia and your symptoms are improving, sex together before a week probably woudln't hurt anything. All recent partners need treatment, of course. Read more

I have diabetes and therefor I have recurring yeast infections, can that cause a bartholin gland cyst abscess?

Sorta: You're diabetes puts you at risk of infection of the skin in general and certainly recurrent yeast infections may lead to inflammation around the gland opening leading to cyst formation, but it may also be related to sexual activity or a bacterial infection issue. Read more
