Is it normal to get a hard cyst on the labia that eventually bursts?

Not normal but...: It's not unusual for a woman to get a cyst in vaginal area, such as a bartholin gland cyst, which gets infected and bursts. It would be a good idea to see your primary physician or gynecologist to evaluate what your problem is. ...Read more

Bartholin Cyst?: Possibly a bartholin cyst. Caused by a backup of fluid from the glands. May be painless, but can become infected. If infected it will be painful. Soaking in warm water may help clear the cyst. Call your doctor if it becomes extremely painful or it does not improve within a few days. ...Read more

Either can get blocked and filled with fluid or by the normal bacteria in the area. It can cause pain with sex. It can be drained or removed. You should see your provider to have this evaluated. ...Read more
