Bartholin Gland Cyst

Bartholin's cysts are common and often occur in women of childbearing years.  A cyst forms when the Bartholin's gland is blocked and the gland becomes inflamed just within each side of the lower part of the vagina's opening. A small, non-infected Bartholin's cyst may not be noticeable unless it grows.


A Bartholin's cyst is not an infection, although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage. Fluid may accumulate when the Bartholin's gland's opening becomes obstructed due to an infection or injury. In this case, it often becomes red and painful when touched. An abscess may form if the cyst becomes infected. There is no dedicated known reason for their development, although stress can be a factor. With an abscess, a bacterial infection is present, but it is usually not an STD. Cysts are not sexually transmitted.


The lest invasive treatment of a Bartholin cyst are sitz baths and compresses. However, it is always recommended that you seek professional medical advice, especially if the cyst becomes inflamed, painful, or lasts longer than a couple of weeks.
