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.

3 doctors agree

In brief: 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
