I have reason to believe I have an infected Bartholin cyst. I have had it since Saturday and I do not think that it has popped just yet because I still have a very itchy and burning sensation in my vagina. I have been doing sitz baths for the past 3 days and the darn think is still very persistent! I was wondering if anyone knows the timeline for this type of cyst to pop on its own when it is infected? I am weary about going to the doctor because they will probably recommend surgery and I am not for that right now! Please advise.
