BARTHOLIN’S GLANDS

Written by

Two small glands opening either side of the external vaginal orifice. Their secretions help to lubricate the vulva, when a woman is sexually aroused. The glands may become infected and very painful; sometimes an abscess develops and local surgery is required. Otherwise antibiotics, analgesics and warm baths are usually effective.
