Bartholin Cyst (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The majority of women feel much better within 24 hours of drainage. Some have problems with recurrent cysts or abscesses. If that becomes the case, there is a procedure called marsupialization, which can be performed to destroy the cyst and prevent future episodes. A gynecologist most often performs this procedure.
