If it persists more than 6 weeks, discuss with your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Infected?: A Bartholin gland is usually "lanced" when it's infected. This treats the infection, but the gland stays in place, and in these cases there is a very high chance of the gland enlarging and becoming bothersome again (not necessarily infected).
