HI GEMINI!! THIS IS BARTHOLINE GLAND The Bartholin gland is a tiny organ on each of the labia (vaginal lips), near the opening of the vagina. If the vagina were the face of a clock, these glands would be found at about 4 and 8 o'clock. Normally they are invisible. They put out a small amount of fluid to lubricate the vaginal lips. If a flap of skin grows over the opening to one of the glands, the fluid backs up. It causes a round swelling called a Bartholin gland cyst (say this: sis-st). The cyst can grow from the size of a penny to larger than an orange, although most don't get bigger than a golf ball. They can be tender.

Most of the time, Bartholin gland cysts are not infected and can't be spread to others. In some cases, however, they can be caused by an infection, or they may get infected after they get bigger. Your doctor may want to culture the cyst fluid to see if an antibiotic is needed. Most infected cysts contain the normal bacteria that are found on our skin. Some infected cysts, called Bartholin gland abscesses (say this: ab-sess-es), AND THE OTHER ONE IS A BACTERIA THE GINECOLOGIST FOUND DURING AN EXAM LAST FRIDAY...I WENT TO A NEW GINECOLOGIST AND HE DID A TEST FOR SEVERAL BACTERIAS, AND THATS THE ONE HE FOUND..I AM WAITING ON THE LITTLE SURGERY I HAD TODAY TO SEE THE OTHER BACTERIAS.. WHICH I AM SURE WILL BE STAPHILOCOCUS AUREOS.. ANOTHER POSIBILITY POR LOW GRADE FEVERS IS BRUCELOSSI, WHICH I SUSPECT I HAVE , THE WAY TO FIND IT IS BY A CULTURE ON BONE MARROW CALLED MYELOCULTURE, IT CAN GROW UOT TO 45 DAYS AND IS 90 PERCET ACURATE... SO ITS BEEN 17 DAYS AND STILL NEGATIVE...SO A GUESS I WILL HAVE A FEW MORE TEST, ALSO TO CHECK LYMPHOMA, IF ALL THAT IS POSITIVE I GUESS I WILL STICK TO BRUCELLOSIS..... IS SO ANOYYING HAVING THIS SMALL FEVERS.........MAKES MY HEART BEAT RAPID, BODY ACHES.. I GUESS AS YOU, I AM GOING TO SCAN MY BONES... MAYBE YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK BRUCELOSIS, YOU GET THAT BY EATING NON PASTERURIZE MIL PRODUCTS AND GOAT DAIRY.. SOMETIMES IS HARD THE DIAGNOSIS, AS MOST OF THESE BACTERIAS ARE.....MY DOCTOR WAS TELLING ME THE STORY ABOUT HIS PATIENT WITH LOW GRADE FEVERS FOR MONTH ANMD WAS A TOOTH, BUT MY TOOH IS NO INFECTED..SORRY ABOPUT THE LENGHT OF MY POST AND THE LETTERS, BUT I AM WRITTING IN BIG AND FOR SEME REASON THAT I DONT KNOW, SHOWS IN SMALL.GARDENELLA IS THE CORRECT NAME OF THE BACTERIA!
DOES THE GALLION INYECTION GIVES YOU SOME SIDE EFFECTS??
HUGS!!!!
