I am 30 yrs old. 10 yrs ago, I was diagnosed with a Bartholin cyst. It took 24 hrs for it to grow to the size of a super bouncy ball. I received a word cath, and sitzbath treatment along with antibiotics. Had a negative std test. 2 yrs later, on the opposite side, I had a cyst lanced. 4 yrs later 1 wk after child birth, I had another one lanced on the original side. I is now five years later, and I went to the emergency room with a cyst too small and deep for a cath, but large enough to be extremely painful. Not one drainage method has ever worked. I have been unemployed, and have lost all medical benefits including medicaid. My symptons have gotten progressively worse. I am now left with an oozing, fowl smelling, itchy, painful vagina. I feel like I am literally rotting. I fear the infection may have spread, because large amounts of discharge ooze at any moment. I now have to shower 3 times a day. I took std tests with every occurence and always negative. In the past 5 yrs I have had sex a total of 4 times, with the last occurence being over 1 yr ago. If anyone can actually help me, this would truly change my life.
