Hi I was diagnosed with a bartholine gland cyst on
Patient :Hi. I was diagnosed with a bartholine gland cyst on Wednesday. It started Tuesday as well as my period. I had sex with my husband last Sunday. I've been taking sitz baths, Tylenol, and using witch hazel. The Dr suggested lancing it but I can't get off work for two weeks. And I'd really rather not have it lanced or drained. What can I do? I'm in excruciating pain. Should I have been given an antibiotic?
