| | Bartholins Cysts - bleeding
I had an total hysterectomy 5 years ago with just the tip of the cervix left and everything has been brillliant till 2 weeks ago!
The last time I had a Bartholin's cyst, well several of them actually, was about 18 years ago. Guess what, one appeared to the left of my labia, just outside the opening and by good was it painful! Very hard, red angry and sore until this morning.
I went to the toilet and noticed that my knickers had blood on them - I was shocked becuase I do not have periods anymore there shouldn't be any blood there. When I wiped myself the tissue wasa covered in blood so I had to go to my local pharmacy and buy some pantyliners so that I could keep it contained.
Now my questions is what do I do now - should I go to my doctor who is fully booked till next Tuesday when I have an appointment with her then - as the cyst (I think and hope) has burst and is bleeding or should I go straight to A&E and wait for hours for someone to look at me and send me home?
Any advice would really help me and just to let you know that it seems to have stopped for the short term in bleeding, whatever it is. Is there a chance that I could make it worse by leaving it.
