Lifestyle changes to prevent Bartholin’s cyst
In most cases, there are no effective ways to prevent the occurrence of Bartholin’s cyst.
However, you can avoid certain things that are the causes of Bartholin’s cyst.
For example, as sexual intercourse can be one of the causes of Bartholin’s cyst, use a barrier method of contraception. Use a condom to avoid the transmission of bacterial or other infections that cause cysts.
If you have a Bartholin’s cyst, you can use a warm shower to help the cyst to burst. This prevents the development of an infection or Bartholin’s abscess.
Try these lifestyle changes and take the help of your doctor. Ensure you are not ignoring the symptoms of Bartholin’s cyst.
As pregnancy is also one of the causes of Bartholin’s cyst, pregnant women should discuss this with their doctor. Discuss the possible risks and complications in pregnancy due to Bartholin’s cyst.
