Swollen Labia Majora


Q: I'm 11 weeks pregnant and I've had a reoccurring bartholins cyst for a while. it's been lanced twice but usually it wills go away with sitz baths. It flared up about a week ago and then went down. A couple days later my boyfriend and I had sex and immediately after my labia majora and around where my gland is became swollen and very painful, I've taken Tylenol to reduce the inflammation and taken hot baths, and it's not as painful but still swollen. Is there anything I can do to help this? I'm not sure what exactly it is?
