I recently had a Bartholin cyst. It wasn't overly large, about the size of a small dried pea and it wasn't abscessed. I did go to the Dr. just to make sure it wasn't anything serious, but she did give me antibiotics in case it did become infected and advised me to take warm baths or sitz baths with Epsom salt to help bring it to the surface. I did try that which helped a bit, but it was very time consuming and the cyst wasn't shrinking too much. I went on earth clinic to find other remedies and did find that mixing calamine lotion with tea tree oil and witch hazel did actually help. Along with an occasional Epsom salt bath, the cyst shrunk to almost nothing, but I stopped the treatment before it was completely gone and the cyst started coming back.

I've read that Tumeric helps with shrinking certain tumors and I've used it as a successful acne treatment in the past. I decided to try mixing coconut oil and the turmeric together and putting the mixture on the Bartholin cyst. I'm proud to say it's almost gone!! I'll continue with the tea tree oil/calamine mixture, but the turmeric and coconut oil seem to work well even though it's really messy and can stain clothes and fabrics, so use with caution.

Hi there, was curious to know if you used the turmeric powder. I'm a victim of BC. Have had around 6 of them. First one and 4th one were removed in an op. I'm now trying to solve it naturally. Have found all the blogs here very useful. The last time I had one, in November, I took the colloidal silver, iodine, vitamin D and rubber clove oil. It was at the final moment of excruciating pain. A few hours later it popped and I was dumb founded. I now have another one, this time became bigger in the space of a couple of days. I'm hoping to try the tea tree and perhaps the turmeric at night time.

I sure hope you have had success with your cyst! It's a lot to go through, especially if you have them repeatedly! I had one over two decades ago and my ob/gyn very quickly and easily opened it up with a sterile needle, pressed on it to drain it, and I was over it! All in his office; nice and easy. I believe I may have had another that I squeezed at home, about 15 years ago, right at the beginning stages (I say I "may have" because I did have another issue once of a very large pimple "down that way" that I took care of...my memory fails me a bit on whether I had another BC or not).

ANYWAY, two weeks ago today, I woke up with a blocked B. gland and recognized the feeling. I would say that the swelling was about the size of a cherry tomato. It did not take long for it to grow the size of a large egg (or a kiwi! :) ) For the past two weeks I tried everything I found online. I did a couple of sitz baths a day with tea tree oil and epsom salts, continued taking my serrapetsase and D3, added vitamin C, restarted probiotics, and began regular homeopathic doses of Silica and of Calcarea fluorica. I ordered the magnesium sulfate drawing ointment, but it has not yet arrived. I drank lemon juice in water and steered clear of sweets (couldn't resist a bit of chocolate here and there.)

When the pain was really excruciating, and after each bath, I applied tea tree oil and couple of drops of clove oil in shea butter to the area. That was soothing (after the initial twinges). When I remembered, I took some tincture of Turmeric followed by coconut oil (to help with the absorption of the Turmeric.) Sometimes I used a hot water bottle at night. A couple of times I tried the advice of alternating heat and ice. After almost two weeks and still so much pain, I wondered what more I could do. Last night I ordered a special essential oil blend made specifically for BCs. I was also going to try to make a turmeric salve....looks very straight-forward, but I was lazy.

Just this morning, the thing finally started draining on its own! I woke up to use the bathroom and was very very pleased to see that after 2 weeks, I was finally on the mend!

I was on the verge of ordering the online ebook everyone was talking about, as I realize that diet is very important. Have you purchased that? Perhaps that would help you avoid repeated bouts with these nasty cysts.

Sorry to be so lengthy...

I do have a question. Now that it is draining, what is the best way to protect the area against infection? I will continue taking Kyolic garlic, but will have to stop the colloidal silver (forgot to mention that I was also taking those two natural antibiotics! ), since I have been taking it for two weeks already. Maybe Echinacea.

Any tips on avoiding infection now that it is draining will be very welcome.

I, too, am so grateful to this Earth Clinic forum for providing so much advice and encouragement!

What is the online e-book the author of the post about bartholin cyst is referring? She said it may help prevent them from reoccurring? Do you know what book she's talking about?

Prevention is in your diet. Remove all processed foods, canned foods, fermemted, picked, pasteurized, plastic packaging. All mold must be removed all fungus must be removed from the diet. Basically it's gluten-free sugar-free and yeast free. No bread no cheese no pasta. No pork of any kind. No lunch meat - no leftovers that set out at all. I know it sounds harsh but It can save your life from the misery of the cysts.

After it bursts, take collodial silver and also apply to area 2-3 a day, to prevent infection.

Bartholin Cyst:

I've suffered from these cyst for 7 years. My first experience I thought I was given a STD however, after a check up by my Gyno-- he informed me of the glad and how common this is in women who are sexually active. My last three experiences all 2 years apart consisted of a painful cyst size of a golf ball in my right genital area. These all very painful ruptured on their own after 4-5 days-- and sitZ bath...pain was worse as the days went by took way to long ti rupture and very painful!!

This recent experience was 4 days ago. I noticed after my cycle was ending a slight itch, I figured it was due to my ph off given my cycle. Two days later I was intimate with my boyfriend and realized something was different. Sex was uncomfortable but not painful, so I tried to enjoy it.

The next day I realized that the glad began to act up so I applied pressure knowing what it was from past experiences.

Day 2 I was able to apply pressure and get out some fluid but it did not get better.L uckily this did not get to a size of a golfball more like a walnut.. by day 3 I was in pain And had to clear the remainder of my schedule for the day.

I applied pure Tea Tree to the area..instant relief!!! (Tingling) Followed up by a sitz bath with 2 tbsp Epsom salt And a few more drops of tea tree In the water..this helped but the pain continued .. I was over it!!

I purchased womens probiotic for vaginal support, 3 capsules 1 when I woke up, and 1 every hr until I had 3... clove oil and grapefruit oil. 1000mg vit C and Vit D.. I applied the clove and grapefruit oil directly to the area. And took the vit as directed..Tingling occurred. Within 3 hours the cyst ruptured and it was instant relief, I can walk again!!!

Hope this helps... I had to share...!!!

This sounds a bit odd but I have been trying a slice of potato as a lot of natural health websites say it will draw infection from an abscess. I have added a garlic rub to this. The cyst does appear to respond well to this. Last time I was on antibiotics for this and if it gets worse I may be again but must admit I dislike how they disrupt the ecology of my body.

I took serrapeptase and silica, along with applying PRID all day after urinating and doing 1-2 forty five minute sitz baths with 2 cups Epsom salts. The cyst started as a sore grape and I began the above listed treatment schedule. It kept growing for DAYS and blew up to a swollen golf ball blocking my vaginal canal completely by day 7. The pain peaked on day 10 and I was taking ibuprofen and acetaminophen together to knock the pain down to manageable. After dinner on day 10 I noticed blood after urinating, I hopped into a third sitz bath for the day and gently massaged the lump while holding a small hand mirror to see where the leak was coming from. I was surprised to see the gland opening was on the inner side of the lump and had been pressed closed against the opposite side of my vaginal canal. I fully shifted the lump to the side and the contents of the cyst poured out into the hot water. I think doing this in a hot bath really helped clear it. The release of pain was amazing and I was so relieved. I read another gal on here saying you should get the fluids flowing to keep it from clogging again, so I masterbated with clitoral stimulation only for 10 minutes. The gland filled up with fluid and I drew another bath to gently massage it out again. I cleaned up and dabbed on some antibiotic ointment and am currently wearing a pad to catch any drainage. I didn't have a fever, and the lump never got hot (an indicator of serious infection), so I just toughed it out. I didn't go to the doctor because we are in Covid19 lockdown and I was terrified of bringing the illness back to my young children and husband. THANK THE MAKER IT DRAINED!!! Thank you so much for everyone's advice on here!!!!

I had my first and hopefully my last bartholin cyst and with the help of antibiotics and lancing it began to get better. I have been desperately trying to find options to not have surgery and read and began taking serrapeptase, I am hoping through taking this I will never have a problem again. Once was enough. Thank you for all the advice and sharing your stories and the discovery of serrapeptase was a god send.

Just endured painful cyst this past week, and it finally ruptured last night! Hallelujah!

Short Term Causes and Remedies: I had been wearing pantiliners for a month and it has been horribly hot and humid here. Plus eating too much sugar! So, once it started, the horrible cyst, I tried everything. I ate yoghurt, I put Tea Tree oil on it (dilute, or it burns! ), Witch Hazel, and compresses of Epsom Salts. Even tried a paste of Diatomacious Earth, to dry out the cyst. I took Colloidal Silver, some antibiotic, Vit D, and Silica. This all likely helped but it wasn't until I received the Serrapeptase that I rush ordered from Amazon, that it finally burst six hours later. I took three pills so that it would be at the suggested 120 dosage. I'm sure the others helped, but I think the Serrapeptase helped it to rupture on it's own. Years ago, when I had this, the doctor sliced me open, so painful and it came right back the next day. Has to rupture on it's own.

Long term causes and remedies: eating too much sugar and acidic diet, so off sugar and switching to vegetarian, alkaline foods.

So happy to be able to walk and sit down again! Hope this helps! I was there, just a day ago!

Hi,

Bartholin cyst/abscess for the 3rd time. Pain level was 8/10. This time I was prepared beforehand itself. I already had Silica complex, and 40,000IU Serrapeptase at home. Started with 2 Serrapeptase twice a day on empty stomach and 1 Silica complex tablet. Since the cyst did not burst out till Day 6, I increased Silica complex caps to 3 that particular day. Next day cyst drained.

I would like to share my experience with Bartholin cyst, with those who suffers from it. It was my fourth time having it, first with antibiotics, second time incision, third marsupalization, and fourth time now after 9 years. I couldn't believe it when I touch it and feel that something was happening down there. I thought that after marsupalization it will never happened again. But here it was. my ginecologist confirmed me and gave me a antibiotics.This time I was decided that no matter what I won't have any kind of operation ( it hurts very very much). So I started my therapy with antibiotics and after third day I think that grown more I was in pain and I read here for SERRAPEPTASE AND TEA TREE OIL.

Immediately I started taking serrapeptase internally and do baths with added tea tree oil, I was starting to lose faith but after four days the cyst ruptured by itself, oh what a instant relief. So anyone who have this horrible thing use these two products and after some days will help.

God bless us all.

So, I just recently had my first abscess and I had no idea about anything so I had them put the catheter in :(

Would you advise that I should take the supplement additionally with my antibiotics? The way I see it is the duct is obstructed right? so by them opening it up and letting it leak out only means that I am clearing it up and not clearing up the base problem. I don't want to be like this for 2 weeks. The doctor referred me to a marsupialization specialist and I don't know if that is better for me at this point or if I should just stick to this balloon that is slowly ripping itself out of my body.

Hi lovelies. I'm also suffering from this - I had a giant, painful infected Bartholin's cyst that needed to be lanced twice, plus 3 rounds of antibiotics, sitz and soaks, about 4 months ago.

Since then, it's been very small - about the size of a grape if you push in to find it, but nearly flat on the surface - and stayed that way, but about every other day or so it swells a bit and is slightly sore...and then drains some blood and pus.

It's literally been open and draining like that for 3 months - occasionally, it's bright red blood and more than usual.

Has anyone else experienced continual draining? Could my taking daily homeopathic silica be affecting it in that way? I still do a hot compress for about an hour every night, and some witch hazel and tea tree compresses, which seems to keep it from getting any worse.

Stay strong, ladies. We can do this.

I'm having my 4th bartholin cyst now after my 3rd one last year. When I thought it wouldn't come back, it really greeted me for new year! I soaked myself in sitz bath and sat down on a small pale of hot water, I use the steam. But then it grew in size during the process. After that I read about baking soda and salt and turmeric.. I put the mixture and just left it there last night. Earlier in the morning I see a burnt or thinning of the area where I left the cotton pad on. Is it normal?

I used a silica supplement which contained 5g horsetail, zinc, B6 and manganese to treat my recurring bartholin cysts. Dosage varied between 1-2 capsules per day and saw results within 5 days. It saved me from having the marsupilization procedure. Extremely happy to find a natural alternative :)

I have my first Bartholin Cyst. It is EXTREMELY painful. About the size of a large grape? I'm thinking about getting it lanced tomorrow because I'm in welding school and need to be able to move without pain.

I got some Silica today and have been taking a bunch of it...yet to see results... I have an important test on Thursday (it's Tues) I need to be able to practice for. Should I get it lanced at urgent care? I have no gyno or insurance.

Also I've been doing hot calendula compresses and taking a lot of vitamins.

It hurts to drive, do anything, I'm scared and not sure what to do. Help!!!!

I had a Bartholins cyst at age 18. I could tell when it was going to burst because it would start throbbing and become very painful. The thing about those is that they will continue coming back unless you have it lanced. I had my lanced at 19 and I am now 39. Get it lanced, it will be the best thing for you. Its a very simple and quick procedure. You will feel much better afterwards. TRUST ME!

This definitely does NOT work for most. Lancing it is only taking care of the current cyst, not the underlying reason for the drain blockage and swelling. Marsupialization is an option but in my opinion, not a good one. At least, it didn't work for me. I had 2 marsupializations done on my left gland after having it lanced and drained 4 times. I then had the gland completely removed surgically and it's been my only source of relief from the horrid thing!!! Well NOW... 10 years later... Right gland has decided to join the fun. I wanna cry every time I talk about it. I've had it lanced and drained 6 times already, I refuse to do marsupializations any more because they are extremely painful. Local anesthetic does NOT work in your genital region because of the amount of nerves so you feel EVERYTHING. Literally getting a hunk of flesh, shaped like a square, cut from the inside of your labia and stitches sewn around the edge of the entire incision. I was screaming like a horror movie victim.

All in all this is a nightmare and the ONLY thing that has worked for me is a large gauze soaked in witch hazel left on for overnight and if it hasn't burst by morning than applying a tea tree oil / coconut oil mix directly to it.

I have had the same problem, 5 times I have been open, once on the right side and once on the left. My doctor recommended that he remove the gland completely on the right side because it is swollen at the moment but I'm afraid ... I'm 29 years old and I'm afraid I will have problems following the removal. How did you recover after such an operation?

How effective is Silica in treating bathrolin cyst? I'd really like to know about it. I come across the name by researching online. I've been having bathrolin Cyst recurrence and it make my life really uncomfortable and it's really painful and unbearable . I did the marsupilization and it still come back.

Hi there, this is my second post in two days concerning my experience with Bartholin Cyst. It ruptured last night, so here is my full experience.

I noticed a grape size lump on the right side of my vagina where the Bartholin gland resides about a year ago. I did not have insurance so going to the doctor was not an option for me at that time. It did not hurt at all, it only would swell up from time to time and go away. Usually during sex, or when I am negligent with my hygiene. Because it did not hurt I simply observed it and moved on. As of last week I noticed it growing larger. Now the size of golf ball, I guess is the closest reference I can use. As it grew it became uncomfortable but not painful, I just felt the pressure from the size. At this point I enrolled for medical insurance for the 2018 year because this was not looking promising.

By Saturday I was beginning to experience more pressure and thus more pain. I started doing heavy research and learned about sitz baths, tea tree oil and castor oil. I had these things in my home already in addition to epsom salt. So I took my first bath Saturday night. I notice the pain slowly getting more intense. By Sunday I was walking as if I had a limp and it was painful to sit directly on it. I took 3 baths on Sunday, which became more and more uncomfortable with each bath due to the pain and having to sit in the tub. It was the longest 20 minutes.

I took a full bath that night, filling the tub all the way up. I layed on my stomach and soak for an hour. That night was on and off with sleeping because of the pain. It hurt to move, shift and roll over. I had to place a pillow between my legs to avoid the pressure of them being closed. I am a heavier woman so my thighs applied a lot of pressure. I also slept on my back with my legs open or on my stomach with my legs spread apart. I am a side sleeper so this was major uncomfortable. After tossing and turning all night and having to deal with constant bathroom trips I got up for the day at 630am to take my first bath of the day.

My plan was to head to a health store thereafter and purchased some vitamins to help remedy the cyst. I didn't make it because of the pain. Instead I called off work and went to my boyfriend house and laid in his bed just to have somebody around. I took an Ibuprofen soon after I got there and had some relief. I also heated some castor oil and soak a gauze and placed it on the cyst to avoid friction. I then fell asleep and rested. right around the 8 hr mark after the pain killer wore off. I fell into excruciating pain. I took another Ibuprofen and took another bath. I was getting worse. I started calling around for free clinics that could possibly help with a payment plan option. I didn't get through to anyone because of the time it was right at 430 pm. I went back to sleep at 5pm, at this time the ibuprofen buffered the pain until later I went to urinate. It flared the pain up a bit, so I took some salt water and poored it on my vagina for some relief of the burning and slight itch feeling. It worked for a moment, so I immediately did another sitz bath but in a small basin this time. I sat for 20 minutes and dried off. I felt better, but I could feel the pain trying to increase so I took another Ibuprofen before the 8 hour mark, so basically I am overdosing at this point, then I went to lay back down. within 5 minutes the pain completely subsided. I thought hmmm Salt water bath? As I reached down to touch, the lump had felt softer, as I felt toward the inside that's when IT RUPTURED! It was a disgusting thing to witness but It was everything I needed. I slept well overnight and here I am now. I still am going to work on getting vitamins and rebuild my immune system to NEVER experience this again! The cyst is still slowly draining so I am wearing a pad to catch that and keeping my vagina rinsed with salt water.

I've been suffering for BC two years ago, pay a visit to OB specialist, they given me painkiller and antibiotic to resolved it, I asked them to do procedure on me but they turn me away by saying that its only small lump. I went home walking with excruciating pain (it 10/10, I've never felt so much pain in my life). I took sitz bath (no added salt) 4-5times for about 4days, and cont taking antibiotis and painkiller before that little satan burst in afternoon. I was BC free for about 2 1/2 years.

Last friday (26/5/2017) I felt small little lump at my genital area but wasnt sure if its a BC or not so I decided to left it on its own. 2days afterwards, I felt it getting bigger but no pain felt, so I talk to my doc about it. She not giving me anything coz I said it doesnt hurt until the next tuesday(30/5/2017) I felt like it bugging me whenever I walk and sit. So I asked my doc to examined me and confirmed it was BC. (damn hell). She contact a specialist at nearest hospital to refer me to them, however the specialist asked me to try antibiotic first. I was a bit relieve coz its holidays weeks for us. So I decide to do sitz bath at home, I did few times a day (without salt) and massage that little satan, I bought serrapeptase online and took it 2x daily (since a pill is only 40uid, I took 3 to increase the dose), I also bought Australian Tea Tree Oil to rub at night, Kerdel Horsetail herbs supplement. I did everything for few days and the cyst getting bigger and its even hard for me to sit and walk (i walk like a monkey lol).

After trying anything I could, finally I felt like the lump has soften a bit but still tender to touch. So I did a mixture of baking soda and salt and apply it with cotton pad on my cyst, its not long I felt burning at my skin so I decide to take it of and continue with tea tree oil. I rubbed a few times a day.

Today(2/6/2017), I already lost hope to try anything I could. I told myself, if this cyst hadnt burst tomorrow I will straightly go to ER to make it drain. Before sleep I took a sitz bath again, and ate 2 tablet of horsetail herb and went to sleep without applying anything on the cyst. Sleep was hard when I cant even find comfortable position to rest my eyes. Few hours later, I touch the area and its wet, I try to move my legs and smell the odor, (guess what its foulty smell), so I get up and find my skirts all wet, when I turned on the lamp, I see blood and white yellowish stain. So I rush to bathroom and do sitz bath along to drain the cyst. Its a bit painful(but not as painful as having the growing cyst). After drain the cyst, I place a cotton pads with tea tree oil to ease the pain and prevent infection. I still can feel the small lump right now but not as painful as before. So I will continue to take my supplements and antibiotics, along with sitz bath and massaging the area to clears the clog.

My advice, its okay to try anything that u could, just don't lose hope. It will get better even it can make u depressed, emotional and physically hurts. I havent ate for 2days in a row, and I can feel that im malnutritions right now. Talk to some one about your condition. Im sorry to be lengthy, but I really do hope my experienced will help u guys a bit.

Lots of love,
Bella

SOLUTION:Get fluids moving naturally.

Had Bartholin Cyst, the size of golf ball. Alot of pain, swelling, soreness, tried the following: tea tree and grapefruit seed extract topically-BAD IDEA -worse pain!! Also did castor oil hot packs applied to the area 2 nights in a row, all night, very hot water baths with a cup of epsom salts, cup of sea salt, and cup of baking soda. NO RELIEF!!

Then I spoke wih a Naturapathic Doctor today-- he said the problem is that fluids are not moving. The fluid that comes from these glands is for the purpose of lubricating pre-intercourse. Somehow those fluids have to start moving again. Well, the area was so inflammed, ultra sensitized and there was a great feeling of pressure that I instinctively felt would be relieved if I helped to "get fluids moving". I don't know if this is what he was implying, but I did another hot sitz bath, went back to bed and did what I could to "get fluids moving"-- three times.

Immediately felt alot of pain relief and did another sitz bath, the cyst broke up, alot of blood and fluid. You may think this is unconventional, but I have been dealing with excruciating pain for 48 hours and this was the thing that "got fluids moving" and broke up the cyst. It would be a natural instinctive way to---- "get fluids moving" as the Naturopath said. Most importantly: IT WORKED!!!!!

I do believe that the castor oil hot packs, baths with epsom salt, sea salt, and baking soda also were integral to the success of this. Sorry if you think it's crass, IT WORKED!!! I think taking a knife to the problem is crass and draconian. THANK YOU EARTH CLINIC!!!!!

Just noticed my BC yesterday morning and successfully popped by this evening!! I did one sitz bath with epsom salt last night. This morning I noticed it was more tender and it bugged me all day at work. It was a bit larger than pea sized..

I perused all the remedies here and decided to continue with the epsom salt baths and add cotton compress of colloidal silver and witch hazel. The sitz bath I took after getting home from work really softened it up (I massaged it a bit as recommended by another writer). Then I mixed 1 part coconut oil, 1 part colloidal silver and 1 part witch hazel. I dipped a cotton pad (gauze) into the solution and applied to the softened BC. I checked it about 3 hrs later and it had popped and started to bleed! I made 2 new pads for over night.. applied one now and will switch midway through the night. I already feel relief and hope it's even smaller by the morning. I plan to continue the pad through work tomorrow to really ward off infection.

I have two Bartholin cysts which are now starting to become painful. But my gynaecologist doesn't want to operate on them as I suffer with Vulvodynia & the cysts are right where I get the burning pain from that, so he is worried if he operates & removes them that it will make the Vulvodynia worse. Can anyone suggest the best thing I can use to try & make them burst keeping in mind that I can't use anything that will make the burning worse.

Hello D,

Suggest tea tree oil dabbed onto your cyst 3 times a day, if this tingling is too sensitive you can make a paste of turmeric and a healing oil you have on hand, like castor, coconut or olive, apply with organic cotton wool or clean cotton rag folded up and tape on. Soak at least 20 mins in bath with cup sea salt or Epsom salts daily or twice daily, to make the paste application more effective. If you don't have bath tub soak in plastic tub. Consuming turmeric will also be beneficial.

Tea tree oil + hot baths + sea salt

Definitely, it helped me. After read some horrific stories, mine..it was the same. The was pain of my life. The bartholin cyst started on Thursday and it burnt on sunday around 4am. I did hot bath, and hot compressed with vinager and sea salt really intense on Saturday. On Sunday I wasn't able to walk, to sit, even lay down. After, read this reviews.. I added the tea tree oil (sunday 4pm) to my rituals baths ..and 4am I was bleeding and screaming Hallelujah (one of the girl on the page write this..so I remembered the comment... and definitely yes... Hallelujah!!! ).

I still doing hot bath.. now, I am a bit loss about next steps... how to keep drain it.

Good luck girls, a lot faith, prays, and meditation :) xo
