Has anyone had any similar symptom? Or heard of such a thing?

But it was extremely painful from the start. Ice was the only thing that helped me, until I got in touch with my midwife, who actually directed me to our backup OB, who drained it with a scalpel. Apparently, when this happens, there can be lots of little pockets of blood and pus, so he jabbed me over and over, and each time there was a little spurt of funky blood- and incredible pain!
He used a 'local anesthetic,' some sort of spray that was supposed to numb the area, but when he sprayed it on me, it burned like ice & fire, and made the whole ordeal even worse.
Then he created a bigger hole so he could put in a little rubber tube for drainage...just awful.
So, if you have the same problem and can catch it before it gets painful or infected, you will save yourself a LOT of misery!
Aren't you glad you asked?

anyways, she did mention that she would have to drain it with a scalpel IF the antibiotics did not work so hopefully in your case, if it is the bartholin cyst they can give me meds to make it go back to normal.

But you didnt mention pain though did you? It might be something else altogether. But if it it the Cyst don't feel like you Have to go to the Dr to get it popped, it can be done on your own. Just my 2 cents...Oh and it went away on it's own after popping, didnt take any antibiotics or anything..
Just when I think I've got this pregnancy stuff down pat, something new happens - goodness gracious, what's next?!?
