This blog post includes adult images of a Bartholin cyst (cyst located on the vagina) and female genitalia anatomy.
Bartholin Cysts are extremely painful and are known to come back repeatedly for years even after being drained by a physician. What the doctors aren’t telling you is that there is an herbal remedy that can take care of your cysts without having painful needles inserted into your vaginal area. There is an herbal poultice you can make for fairly cheap that will open the Bartholin gland naturally and help remove the liquids inside of it. (I’ve been treating my cysts with this mixture and haven’t had mine return for many years now. Everyone’s bodies are unique; I sincerely hope it helps you like it did for me.)
First, you want to know for sure that what you have is a Bartholin cyst. Bartholin’s cyst is the name for the fluid-filled lump that can appear and close off the ducts of the Bartholin glands. The Bartholin glands are located on each side of the vaginal opening and are responsible for secreting lubricating fluid into the vagina.
This Bartholin cyst can cause a few different symptoms including pain in the site of the cyst, fatigue, anxiety, depressed moon, insomnia and inability to get comfortable due to its location. The most common treatments for the symptoms include pain killers, injecting the cyst with a needle and draining it (which can be EXTREMELY and excruciatingly painful) as well as sitz baths and even depression medication in very few cases.
Poultices have been used for centuries to aide in the healing of wounds and illnesses. We have pulled away from them due to the encouragement of pharmaceutical companies. They make much more money doing painful procedures and selling you prescription chemical medication, that don’t always work, than they do selling herbs.
If you suffer from Bartholin gland cysts and need a remedy I sincerely encourage treating it with a goldenseal poultice.
You can purchase goldenseal here at Amazon for $17.38 or you can find it at your local health store, GNC, Sprouts, Whole Foods and etcetera. I personally use the Nature’s Way Goldenseal Root, 570 mg, 100 Capsules.
You can also use the Nature’s Answer Alcohol-Free Goldenseal Root, 1-Fluid Ounce for $28.37 which is already in liquid form and really simplifies the process. The only reason I don’t use the liquid is it will expire before I am able to use all of it. The capsules up above have a longer shelf life which means it’s less likely any of it will get wasted, and I will get my moneys worth. But if that doesn’t matter to you the extract really makes treating your cyst quite a bit easier.
If having an organic product is important to you, there is also the Herb Pharm Certified Organic Goldenseal Extract for Respiratory System Support – 1 Ounce for $17.38. I know it says for respiratory system but it can be used as a poultice to treat your Bartholin cyst as well.
So now that you have your main product, you will also need access to a sink, a small bowl to mix your poultice in, some gauze and some clean fresh underwear (which will help hold the gauze in place).
Also, I suggest doing this during nighttime and sleeping with the poultice on. If the poultice works properly, it will open the cyst up and drain it of its gunk; not an experience you want to go through when you are at work or walking around the mall and what not. Also, walking at all with a giant piece of gauze stuck between your vaginal lips really isn’t comfortable. If you want to prevent making a mess on your sheets and mattress I suggest laying down a towel or wearing a menstrual pad to catch the liquids from your cyst.
(This was NOT painful for me. I can’t say for sure if it will be painful for you or not, because everyone’s body is very unique, but I personally did not experience any pain. It happened entirely in my sleep and I don’t remember it opening up.)
If you purchased the powder capsules go ahead and open up 3 to 4 capsules into your small bowl. Mix it with two to three droplets of water (for added strength you can use Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar [16 Ounce] instead of water if you have it on hand) You might have to add extra water to soak all of the powder and make it wet. If its wet it will be easier to absorb the medicine into the skin and gland causing it to open up naturally and release its toxins.
If you purchased the extract you don’t have to mix anything. Go ahead and open your bottle up.
Clean your vaginal area and the cyst as best as you can with some soap and water. Dry it off well before continuing to the next step.
Prepare a small square of gauze the size of your cyst and soak it in the water/powder mixture you created in your small bowl.
If you have the extract go ahead and put some droplets of the extract onto the gauze. I’d say maybe somewhere between 3 and 5 drops of extract. (Cover the gauze with extract so it will cover your cyst but don’t put so much extract that its dripping off of the gauze either.)
Place the gauze onto your cyst in between your vaginal lips. Try to place it in the spot that seems most tender (that is most likely where your Bartholin Gland is and we need that gland to open naturally and relieve itself of its toxins).
Put your under wear on then put your extracts & powders away. The extract and powder WILL temporarily dye surfaces so be sure to clean it up well so you don’t have some unsightly yellow stain on your countertop for a week.
Go to sleep. Lay in a comfortable position that is most relaxing to you. Keep that gauze in place in between your legs. When you wake in the morning the cyst should have opened itself up and drained. You might need to repeat the process a few times but its far less painful than having a gynecologist sit in between your legs and poke with your vagina with painful needles.
Use the medicines the world has provided… the universe always provides.
Please feel free to comment below if this worked for you, or if it didn’t. Do you have a different process for dealing with Bartholin cysts?
Have you tried this poultice on cysts other than the Bartholin gland?
Love and Light to you all. Take care!
