IMPORTANT: Make sure to read the actual case at the bottom of this post. It’s from a reader who tried a varied bartholin cyst home treatment version with great success!
This post is for the gals and if you have this condition, you definitely know what it is. A Bartholin cyst is very painful and difficult to treat and many women have had little success with traditional medicine. Well, we’ve got a Bartholin Cyst home treatment that is inexpressive and easy to do and it works.
This treatment was used by someone I know personally and I followed along with them during the entire duration of their condition. I’ll tell you the details of her experience and how she was able to virtually cure her Bartholin cyst naturally. As usual, we remind you that everyone is different and your success may differ. However, this is an inexpensive and very safe treatment to test. It’s certainly much less painful and intrusive than the standard medical treatments which many times don’t help at all.
WHERE TO GET TREATED
One of our awesome followers said that Planned Parenthood would treat a Bartholin cyst. So if you decide to go the medical route and have no insurance give them a call. (I’ve not verified this myself.)
Bartholin Cyst: What It Is (The nitty gritty details)
The Bartholin glands are in a woman’s genitals located on both sides of the folds of the labia that surround the vagina. These glands secrete a small amount of fluid. If a Bartholin duct gets blocked, fluid builds up in the gland and it creates a cyst. These cysts can typically be pea sized to marble size and are generally not treated as long as there are no unpleasant symptoms. They can also go away by themselves unless they are so large they cause discomfort. However, the cyst can becomes infected and it will slowly grow larger up to the size of an egg and become very painful. The typical treatment is to cut the cyst open under local anesthesia and drain it which is incredibly painful to have done. But as they seldom heal the problem, it tends to come back requiring further draining. Note: The following is a drawing of the location of the cyst and how it looks. (Graphic)
Symptoms of a cyst that is not infected
• A lump in the area.
• Redness or swelling in the area.
• Discomfort when you sit, walk, or have sex.
Symptoms of an infected cyst include:
• It becomes more and more painful.
• Fever and chills.
• Swelling in the area.
• The cyst can drain.
Stress is the #1 contributor to Bartholin Cysts and a poor diet is the #2 contributor (as in lots of meat, dairy, sugar and processed foods.)
Case #1 Bartholin cyst home treatment
My friend who experienced this went to her doctor numerous times as her cyst kept coming back. She had it drained four times which was a very unpleasant experience. The only other option she was given was to have the duct surgically closed, because having it repeatedly drained will eventually lead to scar tissues building up. However, she had read about many women who had that done and they said it caused other problems afterwards and the cyst even came back on occasion. So her quest was to find a way to naturally heal it.
Here are a few things she found that were suggested that she tried and that did not work:
- Drawing Salve
- Epsom Salts baths
- Tea Tree and Lavender Oil
My friend finally read an in-depth article on using Apple Cider Vinegar. The information she found said it would take three full months to work. She hated the taste of vinegar so she bought Vinegar capsules and took two capsules three times a day. It was at the exact three month mark when her cyst went down tremendously from the size of a quarter to the size of a dime and her symptoms stopped. Though a small cyst was still there the infection was gone. She continues to take the vinegar capsules. Her next step is to change her diet to a more plant based one which will most likely remove it completely.
NOTE: Along with the vinegar she was supposed to take 1tb of the Black Strap Molasses once a day, but after a few days gave it up as it tasted awful.
WHAT TO TAKE
- Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules, 2 Capsules 3x a day with meals (The link is the exact brand she used.)
- Take a daily Vitamin C or drink orange juice as the citrus helps your body absorb the vinegar.
- Black Strap Molasses 1 TB a day (She didn’t take this, but her cyst still went down. It was strongly suggested in the remedy she had researched.)
Remember, everyone is different and your results may differ. Make sure to be patient. It takes THREE MONTHS to work. But it’s virtually painless and simple to do. Good luck and be well!
READER CASES OF HEALING A BARTHOLIN CYST
This post recevies regular comments, some of which reader’s found someting the worked to get rid of their own cysts. I’ll add to this list anyone who posts something they say worked for them.
Reader Case #1 Bartholin cyst home treatment
NOTE: I received this information from someone who got rid of their Bartholin Cyst with a partially different method, as our exact method didn’t work for her. (Edited for spelling & grammar). (2017)
I was trying this, but didn’t helped.Mine was growing and becoming painful. I had antibiotics which actually didn’t helped very much either and had a catheter. That helped to clean it (but it depends on a doctor and how well he/she can placed it). But after a while it came back (I had 8 cysts during 4 months!) So what helped me: I have changed the diet (eating more alkaline), had for two weeks grapeseeds extract (mine was strong. read below)- increasing every day the dosage, and once that was done had two weeks black walnut hulls tincture (1 tsp at the morning and evening 20 minutes before eating). Do not take this for more than a month. So now it’s almost 3 months no cysts! But I will repeat pretty soon again with black walnut hulls tincture (it’s known by very high dosage of vitamin C, natural antibiotic and etc). Apple vinegar is very alkaline, what is good for health. But think once the Bartholin cyst is not at the beginning stage that will probably not help.
- You need no more than 8oz of the Black Walnut Hull Tincture to do1 tsp morning and night for two weeks. It’s fairly expensive on Amazon. Ebay has a much cheaper version which is what this gal used. The shop has good reviews. You would need just an 8oz size.
- The grapeseed extract (I’M VERIFYING IF SHE MEANT GRAPEFRUIT SEED EXTRACT WHICH I BELIEVE SHE DID. I”LL VERIFY ONCE I HEAR BACK FROM HERE 1/20/2018) I used was over 90% (I haven’t found the same here in USA, to I have been sent from Europe- Citrocept). So I think I started with 15 drops and think was having it 3 times per day and adding 5 more days every day until 50 drops.
Reader Case #2 Bartholin Cyst Home Treatment
NOTE: This is another comment I received from someone who used a different method to get rid of their small cyst. (Edited for spelling & grammar). (2019)
“I had a small one the past 2 days but it was starting to get hurtful/irritating. I picked up serrapeptase, ginger root (pills), CoQ10 and l-arginine. I took these as recommended starting yesterday morning, could feel relief in the first few hours and woke up today with it completely gone!”
- Seerrapeptase (this is an enzyme that has a variety of benefits. Read more here.)
- Ginger Root
- L-arginine (I’d suggest taking 1000 mg)
Reader Case #3 Bartholin Cyst Home Treatment
Yet another reader who left a comment detailing what worked for her.
I have been getting these cysts for the last 3 years. I’ve gone through the lancing, packing, and have even had surgery one my left side that didn’t end up being successful. I’ve had over 20 of these things and my last cyst in April was the first one that I was able to self heal and rid myself of my cyst. I actually am feeling a cyst starting now, so that’s why I’m here! To help everyone. Hoping my method helps at least one person!
Ok you need:
Pride drawing salve
What I did:
I covered a piece of gauze in prod and topped it off with castor oil and place it directly on the cyst (inside of my labia) and put a pantry liner and underwear on and went about my day. I replaced the gauze with a fresh one about 4 hours later and went to bed with it. Woke up and cleaned myself and repeated once more. I was curious about two hours later, so checked and there was a small head, I touched it and bam! It started draining. hope this truly helps someone on this thread one day!
Reader Case #4
I’ve had 4 Bartholin cysts in the past 6 years. I didn’t know what to do with the first one, so it got bad. By the time I got to the gyno, he lanced me within 60 seconds of him coming in the room and immediately hospitalized me for several days. He had me on lots of antibiotics. The 2nd one I went to the gyno and got antibiotics right away. I was doing a lot of home remedies and it drained on it’s own (with lots of prayer too!) The 3rd one was so painful and hard that I could barely walk. It was definitely abscessed. I heard that Bentonite clay worked for someone else, so I tried it and it drained painlessly in less than 24 hours! Here’s what I did- I made a clay paste with water ( don’t use a metal spoon- I use my finger to mix it). Get the paste as liwuidy as you can but the clay still needs to hold together. Then I put it right on my cyst and the area around it. About an inch thick. Then cover it with a cloth and let it sit til I can’t hold my pee anymore. I did that for a few hours and then overnight. I did a few the next day and formed a head and drained. What a relief!!
