Bartholin Cyst


Hi Ladies,

I recently got a bartholin cyst and was wondering if anyone has experienced this and has any good advice.

Just to let you know I refuse to have the surgical procedure called marsupialization done. I have been doing sitz baths a few times a day and using a heating pad over top of clothing.

It has been over a week and still not gone.

thank you!

how many drops...

You should really see a homeopathic doctor. I don't want to tell you how many to take because it is your body.
I personally took it in sprays 10ml bottle. I took 14 sprays 3x a day. After a week I found the cyst got very tender and painful then it fluctuated in sizes. It got bigger and smaller and bigger and smaller (never bigger than it's original size). The doctor told me the fluctuations is a great sign because it was showing me that my body was in fact draining it at some point since it was getting smaller. IT took a while but then finally INTERNALLY drained. It never burst.

surprising results

hi ladies, i just wanted to post my results with the witch hazel/tea tree pads.

i have had bartholins cysts since i was 19, and i am now 34. about 3 or 4 every year, and never the small painless kind. always the enormous, not allowing me to walk kind.

this morning that familiar feeling showed up and i braced myself for about 5 days of brutal pain. i google it every so often just to see if anything new has come up and today i read the witch hazel thing, so i figured what the hell. i gave it a go. put a fresh pad on every hour and it grew in size but was not overly painful. well it popped this afternoon. in ONE day!

it could be coincidence but i wanted to pass it along. i have done the surgeries, the lancing, the antibiotics, and nothing has relieved me so quickly!!

witch hazel?

I have had these cysts in the past and I'm constantly paranoid about getting them again because they appear out of nowhere and boy do they hurt! How did you use the witch hazel?

I have tried the surgery, had it drained (which relieved so much pain but so expensive), tried sitz baths, heat pads, and nothing works.

I think It is in the beginning of this thread......soak the pad in witch hazel and tea tree oil. calamine lotion too it says, but I didn't bother. I kept a fresh one placed on the cyst constantly. POP! I've never ever had one burst so quickly.

I think the cyst will only burst if it is an abcess I dont think that happens with a regular bartholin cyst. Mine went away it was almost absorbed internally by the body.

most effective for me was Silicea 30ch, 3 pellets under the tonge, 4 times a day. Followed by as many sitz baths as possible, if you can do 4 a day that is ideal.

Also removed dairy from my diet, no milk or cheese. But yogurt is needed!

Probiotics 25-35 Billion , take it 1-2 times a day. This is extremely important to prevent bacteria.

thank you, ladies!

A big fat THANK YOU all for posting! I experienced this awful cyst for the first time about 2 years ago, at 45 years old, and it scared the hell out of me! Had the marsupialization procedure because the Dr. didn't give me any options...just grabbed for the knife. Then he called in 2 interns to watch. Jeez. The cyst shrank but never fully went away. The good thing about the cyst back then? It helped me end a relationship that I was unhappy in! Ha!

But now I've been dating someone pretty special. No one has mentioned this, but now that I get aroused when I'm having contact with this man, the cyst has gotten much larger and is painful again. I won't physically go to the next level with him (meaning I won't get naked and I won't let his hands wander!) until it's gone, that's not something I want to have to explain when the relationship is new! But I also don't want to wait forever.

Can someone please give more detail on the Witch Hazel/Tea Tree pad thing? I looked back on the thread and couldn't find the "recipe". I'd really like to start that. Today.

Didn't mean to give you guys my life story, I'm just so excited that I found an intelligent thread and feel very hopeful!

no recipe, just squirt the two things on a cotton pad. swap them for fresh ones all the time to keep it wet! good luck!!
