Vaginal irritation: After treatment for a vaginal yeast infection, the vaginal mucosa is likely still inflamed and irritated. You might interpret that as a "dry" sensation.

The cyst is not why: A bartholins cyst is not a direct cause of vaginal dryness. Vaginal lubrication is caused by transudation of fluid from the veins around the vagina. If the cyst is interfering with the thought of having sex, then this would be the source of vaginal dryness. Vaginal lubrication is the equivalent of the male erection. ...Read more
