Answer

Most patients with Bartholin gland disease are discharged home.

Patients with Bartholin cyst or abscess should be advised to take warm sitz baths 3 times per day for several days.

Patients with an abscess often feel immediate pain relief after the drainage procedure; however, they may require oral analgesia for several days after the procedure.

All patients with a Bartholin gland mass should receive close gynecologic follow-up.
