After Marsupialization Surgery
You may have mild pain and discomfort for a few days. Your doctor might prescribe oral antibiotics to prevent infection. You can also take over-the-counter pain relievers.
A small amount of discharge or minor bleeding for a few weeks is normal. A pantyliner is usually sufficient enough to handle this.
Follow your doctor’s instructions for cleaning and caring for the area. This may include taking one or two sitz baths a day for a few days.
Until you’re fully healed and your doctor gives you the go-ahead, don’t:
. Engage in sexual activity
. Use tampons
. Use powders or other similar products
. Use harsh soaps or fragranced bathing products
You should be able to resume normal activities within 2 to 4 weeks.
Follow up with your doctor as recommended to ensure that you’re healing properly.

Around 1 in every 50 women will develop a Bartholin’s cyst or abscess. Sexually active women aged between 20 and 30 are most likely to develop them. Not all of these women will require marsupialization, however.
Following the procedure, you should be back to normal activities within a few weeks.
Marsupialization of a Bartholin’s cyst makes recurrence less likely than it is after other procedures.
According to research, about 5 to 15 percent of Bartholin’s duct cysts recur after marsupialization.
