I was told yesterday that I have a Bartholin's gland cysts. She put me on antibiotics to fight off infection. I have taken 3 pills since my appointment yesterday, and the cyst has almost doubled in size.. Does anyone know anything about these types of cysts or what can be done to get rid of them. It's starting to get painful to walk, let alone wipe when I go pee. Someone help me..

Did you get a chance to call your doctor? I've never had one, only read about them. If it doesn't go away on it's own, your doctor may have to help it out.

I hope you are feeling better!

Hi and welcome. I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. I have no experience with them so can't really help. What did the doc say about how long you would have to suffer? If things have gotten worse since your visit, you may want to call and update your doctor. She may need to change your treatment.
