Bartholin Cyst Home Treatment That Works
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.
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.)
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!
