Customer Question

I just noticed I have a batholin cyst? Could it have been there a long time and I just not noticed or did it just happen in the past few days?

Could it be related to oral sex?

Hi--how do you know it's a Bartholin cyst?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is exactly where they say they are located and was filled with a string puss. It is painless but is a little sore now that I squeezed it out.

OK--just checking. No, these aren't caused by oral sex and they aren't related to any STD. Women without ever having any type of sex can get them. You need to see a doctor and have this drained since it sounds like it may be getting infected
