Have you ever had a Barthlonin's Cyst?

I'm wondering how many women actually know about them and have had to do anything about it.

I had to have mine removed after 10 absceses, lancings, etc.

It started out smaller than the tip of a pen and ended up (not abscessed) larger than a hen's egg.

I was told by a few different doctors in the ER and such that it was an ingrown hair because I shave down there, but it wasn't and could have killed me.

  • I had one in college, but I was young and dumb and didn't know what it was. It eventually popped on its own

  • Mine grew larger than a tengerine and I couldn't do anything due to the pain so I went to the ER. It was worse than having kids I think. :(
