Are you hoping a special girl likes you, but don’t know how to tell if she is really interested in you? Are you looking for hints to tell you what she’s thinking? What does it mean when she keeps touching her hair? This article provides  things to look for to help you decide if a girl likes you.

1. Conversations Reveal If A Girl Likes You

Start a conversation with her. If she is happy to chat with you, that’s a good sign. Some couples just click from the time they start talking and can talk for hours.

If she’s nervous, she might have trouble speaking up. Give her a chance to become comfortable with you. Ask her questions and wait for her to answer. She might need some time to collect her thoughts.

The danger signs are if she looks bored or simply answers your questions with a shrug. Or, even worse, if she grabs hold of a passing friend and allows herself to be dragged away.

2. Does She Laugh at What You Say?

If a girl likes you, she’ll laugh in all the right places.

  • Hopefully she genuinely finds you amusing and isn’t just working hard to encourage you. But even if she is trying a little too hard, that’s okay. She obviously believes you are worth the effort.

  • Some girls get the giggles when they are nervous.

But here’s the kind of laughter you definitely want to look for …

  • The full belly laugh you both share.

You know the kind. You’re both laughing so hard you are almost crying. You feel as though you’re about to split in half. The two of you share moments that are simply irresistibly funny.

Others around you think you’re both crazy, but the hearty chuckles make perfectly good sense to the two of you.

3. What Happens When Your Eyes Meet?

A girl who likes you may shy away from looking at you directly. If your gaze meets, she blinks and turns her eyes away. She is not comfortable being caught looking at you. This kind of girl won’t want to be seen as ‘chasing’ you. She waits for you to make the first move and approach her.

But some women speak through their eyes. Lucky you if your gaze connects with a woman whose eyes sparkle and invite you to come and say hello. A confident girl will directly hold your attention for longer than you’d expect before looking away.

4. Does She Acknowledge You, or Ignore You?

A girl who really likes you will at least acknowledge that you exist. Even if she’s extremely shy, she’ll find a way to let you know that she knows you’re there.

If a girl completely ignores you, she has no interest in you. But is she really ignoring you, or is she sending you a quiet message that’s she’s noticed you but doesn’t know how to react?

Here’s some examples of how a girl who likes you might behave if she’s really shy:

  • She’s with a group who engage you in conversation, but she stays quiet.

  • She nods, or smiles. Just quickly, but it is a definite nod or smile in your direction.

  • There’s a sudden interruption (or end) to her activity as soon as she sees you. Perhaps she stops singing, or dancing, or talking.

Yes, she’s noticed you. She’s definitely not ignoring you, or she’d just carry on whatever she was doing without missing a beat.

5. Does She Lick Her Lips?

I’m sure you’d like to think that licking her lips is an action that should be interpreted to mean she’d love to kiss you. And yes, she might be dreaming about you kissing her. But don’t get too excited just yet.

Licking her lips could simply be a sign of a dry mouth. But you have to wonder, why is her mouth so dry? If it is not an incredibly hot day and she’s not just finished running a marathon, I’m guessing she’s nervous.

So there’s a good chance she likes you.

6. How Often Does She Smile At You?

A girl who smiles at you, likes you. There’s occasionally exceptions to this rule, like the girl who hopes to win some kind of popularity contest and smiles at everyone. But most girls don’t bother smiling at someone they don’t like.

A shy girl might not grin widely. Her smiles may be brief, but she certainly looks pleased to see you. Sometimes her smile is more in her eyes, than plastered on her face.

7. She Doesn’t Like You Flirting With Other Girls

A girl who likes you will be uncomfortable if you flirt with other girls. Nobody likes competition. She might react openly, or may just slip away so she doesn’t have to watch you giving another girl attention.

Be warned before you flirt with other girls, it might backfire. If you seem to fancy yourself as a ladies’ man, she might lose interest in you. How can she trust a boyfriend who is quick to flirt with other girls?

8. Does She Hug You?

Does she hug you at every opportunity? We only hug people we like. Hugging you could be an excuse to get closer to you and experience the feel of your body.

Perhaps she likes you but can’t tell you with words. It may be easier for her to use other strategies like hugging you and making herself very close to you.

Hugs come in different forms. Some girls just wrap themselves around boys they like. It can be a welcoming hug when you cross paths in the street or in the mall. But other girls are more likely to wrap a soothing arm around your shoulder. For instance, if you are seated and struggling with a problem on your computer. She may lean over and give you a shoulder hug, reassuring you that you can solve the problem.

9. Does She Touch You?

She will always find many excuses to touch you or feel your body. Does she touch you when she is sitting next to you? That’s a clear hint she’s attracted to you. She wants to come closer to you and there is no better way or method for her than touching you on the arms or the hair.

She may pretend to remove an imaginary thing from your arm or hair. Perhaps she brushes crumbs from your chest.

Some girls give light-hearted slaps. Others grab your arm with excitement. If she’s touching you, she likes you.

10. Her Friends Give Clues She Likes You

Her best friends will know if she likes you. Look to them for clues. What do her friends do when you are around? How does she react with her friends?

  • Do her friends glance at you as you approach?

  • Do they smile when you approach them?

  • Are her friends seeming to tease her?

  • Does she look cross, as though she’s afraid one of them might tell you she likes you?

  • Have any of her friends asked you if you like her?

 More Hints A Girl Likes You

  1. You will learn from her body language if she likes you or not. You can really interpret her body language to determine if she likes you or not.
  2. She will get interested in things you do or like. For instance if you are a fan of Manchester United, she will also develop an interest in that team
  3. You will see her blushing in your presence. This happens not once but many times
  4. Does she play with her hair when you are around her? If yes, that is an unconscious sign that shows her interest in you. She may be imagining you caressing or playing with her hair.
  5. When you are sitting or having a rest somewhere, you will find that she will walk past you a couple of times. Maybe she is trying to get your attention. She wants you to be attracted to her and is probably waiting for you to take the first step and start a conversation with her.
  6. She may lean back in a chair or sofa in order to protrude or display her chest area. She will show you ‘what you are missing’. That is a sure sign that she likes you and she wants you to fall for her. She is just waiting for you to approach her.
  7. Her arms are open wide when she is talking to you and that could be interpreted to mean ‘I’m open for you’. In other words it’s a sort of unconscious way to encourage you to approach her.
  8. When she is having a conversation with friends and she sees you approaching or in a nearby place, she will break from her friends and come to where you are. She wants to be closer to you at all times and that is a sure sign that you impress her.
  9. She compliments you whenever you are dressed nicely or she sees you in designer clothing. She always likes to see you looking good.
  10. Does she talk of a relationship she had in the past, make clear that it ended and she is feeling lonely now? If yes, she is probably attracted to you. Don’t assume that she’s still obsessed with her ex-boyfriend. Consider it an invitation to take his place!

How to find a lost phone

Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to get a hold of your missing phone. If it’s a smartphone (or even a tablet) running iOS, Android, or even Windows Phone, chances are good it already has the software needed to hunt it down — or there’s an app you can install to track your phone. Here’s our guide on how to find a lost phone or a similar device.

Have you ever wondered what happens to a smartphone after it’s stolen? Read how this filmmaker spied on a thief to find out.

Smartphones

If your lost phone happens to be a smartphone, all three of the major smartphone platform providers (Apple, Google, and Microsoft) include phone retrieval technology in their smartphones. Usually, the way these apps work is through the account associated with your device. For Android devices this is your Google account, for iPhones, this is your iCloud account, and for Windows Phones this is your Microsoft account. All three allow you to remotely lock and wipe your phone, make it ring, and set up special messages to alert whoever finds it.

Of course, these features are only as good as your phone’s battery. If your smartphone dies, it’s about as easy to find as your wallet or anything else you might misplace.

We also recommend caution when communicating with anyone who has found your smartphone. Be careful to avoid giving away any personal information, such as your home address, until you know you’re dealing with someone you can trust. Stick with sending phone numbers or email addresses to communicate how the good Samaritan can return your phone. Here’s how each of the three operating systems work.

How to find a lost Android phone

Android not only offers Google’s proprietary service for finding and managing your device remotely but also a number of third-party apps designed for finding your smartphone. The easiest to use is Find My Device, which is built directly into your Android smartphone through Google Play Services — it can also be used in a browser or downloaded from the Google Play Store. Most devices running Android 2.3 or later should be able to use this feature.

Using the feature is as easy as searching  “Where is my phone” in Google, which will prompt the service to start looking for your smartphone. We’ve previously written about Find My Device and its ability to call you, set up a new password, and make your phone ring from afar, along with the variety of other functions it uses for notification purposes. While you can configure Find My Device ahead of time, the service should be available in the event you lose or misplace your phone. It will use Wi-Fi or GPS to help you hunt down your device.

To verify your Android smartphone has the Find My Device feature turned on, go to Settings > Google (or Google services) > Security and make sure Remotely locate this device is turned on in the Find My Device section.

If you can’t find your smartphone, you can always wipe it to prevent sensitive information from getting into the wrong hands. Your device will need an internet connection, however, and enough juice to communicate with you. In Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google also introduced Factory Reset Protection (FRP). It’s designed to prevent would-be thieves from being able to steal your phone, wipe it, and then use it or sell it. If you factory reset a phone with FRP enabled and try to set it up as a new device, you’ll be prompted to enter the username and password for the last Google account that was registered on the device, and if you can’t, the phone will remain locked.

There are also third-party apps that you can install to help you find your phone. Cerberus Anti-theft is a great app that offers remote access and control, allowing you to obtain more information regarding the whereabouts of your phone. It provides a number of additional features, such as more granular control on how you track your device, screenshots of what your device is doing, photos from the camera to possibly catch the would-be thief, and other, more detailed notifications that Find My Device doesn’t offer. If your device is rooted, there are even more features available to prevent someone from resetting or turning off your device until you can recover it.

Another option for select Samsung smartphones is the Find My Mobile service. It can be used to locate a missing phone, lock it down, or wipe it completely. You’ll need a Samsung account, though, and the Remote Controls options enabled on your phone. To check and see if Find My Mobile is available for your smartphone, go to Settings > Lock screen & Security. If you see Find My Mobile in the menu, you can use the service; enable the Remote Controls options via Settings > Security > Find My Mobile > Remote controls.

How to find a lost iPhone

The best (and only) way to get your iPhone back is through Apple’s native feature, Find My iPhone. The app comes pre-installed on every iOS device and can display your missing device on a map to help you easily locate and manage it. You’ll need a computer or another iOS device with the Find My iPhone app to deploy this feature, however. Sadly, these features are only available when your phone is powered on and connected to the internet.

To use the feature, simply log into iCloud and open the Find my iPhone feature. The Apple service will locate your phone on a map and give you the option to play a sound on your device, send a message to your phone with “lost mode,” or erase its contents. All of this can be done without any additional configuration.

Find my iPhone is also able to locate your Mac, iPod, and iPad. It’s an incredibly effective tool for tracking down just about any iOS device. Don’t believe us? Check out this story about cops apprehending a criminal by using the app. This is just one of many similar stories where phone-tracking software helped save the day.

Apple also employs another form of security, known as Activation Lock, to keep your iPhone safe from theft. Like the reactivation lock for Samsung smartphones, Activation Lock requires you to enter your Apple ID and password before you can disable Find My iPhone, wipe your device, or reactivate it.

How to find a lost Windows Phone

Windows Phone owners, don’t fret. If you’ve misplaced your smartphone, you too can recover it with the help of Microsoft’s built-in service. The company has built a lost phone feature directly into Windows Phone 8.1 and later iterations thereof, allowing you to easily find the location of your phone or activate its ringer remotely. It doesn’t require additional configuration after you add your Microsoft account either, though it will only work if your device has power and is connected to the internet.

Find My Phone Windows Phone

All you need to do is go to Microsoft’s devices page. There, you should see all your phones and tablets, which you can then locate through the service. You can even add devices that are not currently on the list, remotely lock your devices, and wipe devices you think might have fallen into the wrong hands.

How to find your not-so-smart cell phone

Step 1: Call your cell phone. Listen for the ring or vibration and try to locate your phone through tried-and-true human detection. If your phone is truly lost and in someone else’s hands, then they’re likely to answer if they intend to return the phone. If you don’t have access to a phone, try using wheresmycellphone.com. It will call your phone for free and allow you to leave a message or talk to whoever is on the other side.

Step 2: Retrace your steps. Do a full-fledged visual search. If you couldn’t hear a ring or vibration when you called it, don’t immediately assume that your phone is located far away — the battery could simply be dead.

Step 3: Text your phone. If you believe someone has stolen or possibly found your phone, then send a text message to your phone with your contact info and a reward offer if you choose to do so. There are many online services that allow you to send free text messages, such as txt2day.com.

Step 4: Alert your service provider. If you’ve lost hope of finding it, then call your wireless carrier and let them know your phone is lost. Ask if they offer a GPS locating service. If not, ask them to suspend service to your phone to avoid any possible fraudulent charges. Carriers have differing policies about this, but it’s always worth a try, even for a smartphone. This FCC page has a handy list of numbers.

Step 5: Register your lost phone. If you know your phone’s IMEI number or have it written down somewhere, register it with Immobilize.

Step 6: Prepare for the next time you lose your phone. Maybe you’re one of those people who’s always losing their phone. You may want to consider registering for a tracking service such as AccuTracking.

Fibroid: Causes, symptoms, and treatments

Published

Share this...
Share on Facebook0Share on Google+0Tweet about this on Twitter2Share on LinkedIn0

Fibroids are the most frequently seen tumours of the female reproductive system. More and more women, especially black women are suffering from this problem which causes chronic pain and infertility issues. Here’s everything you need to know about fibroids!

Whether you already suffer from fibroids or are at risk from suffering from them, it’s important to know all the facts. Though they can begin harmlessly enough, fibroids feed off blood and can grow into a larger problem, sometimes ending in fertility problems and even leading to further health problems such as anaemia. In extreme cases, an otherwise benign tumor can even become cancerous.

What are fibroids?

Fibroids, also known as uterine myomas, leiomyomas, or fibromas, are firm, compact tumours that are made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue that develop in the uterus. It is estimated that between 20 to 50 percent of women of reproductive age have fibroids, although not all are diagnosed. Some estimates state that up to 30 to 77 percent of women will develop fibroids sometime during their childbearing years.

In more than 99 percent of fibroid cases, the tumors are benign (non-cancerous). These tumors are not associated with cancer and do not increase a woman’s risk for uterine cancer. They may range in size, from the size of a pea to the size of a softball or small grapefruit.

What causes fibroid tumors?

While it is not clearly known what causes fibroids, it is believed that each tumor develops from an aberrant muscle cell in the uterus, which multiplies rapidly because of the influence of oestrogen.

Who is at risk for fibroid tumours?

Women who are approaching menopause are at the greatest risk for fibroids because of their long exposure to high levels of estrogen. Women who are obese and of black heritage also seem to be at an increased risk, although the reasons for this are not clearly understood.

Research has also shown that some factors may protect a woman from developing fibroids. Some studies, of small numbers of women, have indicated that women who have had two children have one-half the risk of developing uterine fibroids compared to women who have had no children. Scientists are not sure whether having children actually protected women from fibroids or whether fibroids were a factor in infertility in women who had no children.

There are factors that can increase a woman’s risk of developing fibroids.

  • Age. Fibroids become more common as women age, especially during the 30s and 40s through menopause. After menopause, fibroids usually shrink.

  • Family history. Having a family member with fibroids increases your risk. If a woman’s mother had fibroids, her risk of having them is about three times higher than average.

  • Ethnic origin. Black women are more likely to develop fibroids than white women.

  • Obesity. Women who are overweight are at higher risk for fibroids. For very heavy women, the risk is two to three times greater than average.

  • Eating habits. Eating a lot of red meat (e.g., beef) and ham is linked with a higher risk of fibroids. Eating plenty of green vegetables seems to protect women from developing fibroids.

Types

Fibroids are non-cancerous tumours that appear in the tissues around the womb.

There are four types of fibroid:

  • Intramural: This is the most common type. An intramural fibroid is embedded in the muscular wall of the womb.

  • Subserosal fibroids: These extend beyond the wall of the womb and grow within the surrounding outer uterine tissue layer. They can develop into pedunculated fibroids, where the fibroid has a stalk and can become quite large.

  • Submucosal fibroids: This type can push into the cavity of the womb. It is usually found in the muscle beneath the inner lining of the wall.

  • Cervical fibroids: Cervical fibroids take root in the neck of the womb, known as the cervix.

The classification of a fibroid depends on its location in the womb.

Different types of fibroids

Symptoms

Around 1 in 3 with fibroids will experience symptoms.

These may include:

  • heavy, painful periods, also known as menorrhagia

  • anaemia from heavy periods

  • lower backache or leg pain

  • constipation

  • discomfort in the lower abdomen, especially in the case of large fibroids

  • frequent urination

  • pain during intercourse, known as dyspareunia

Other possible symptoms include:

  • labour problems

  • pregnancy problems

  • fertility problems

  • repeated miscarriages

If fibroids are large, there may also be weight gain and swelling in the lower abdomen.

Once a fibroid develops, it can continue to grow until menopause. As estrogen levels fall after menopause, the

fibroid will usually shrink

Fibroid symptoms

How are fibroid diagnosed?

Fibroid are found during a routine pelvic examination. This, along with an abdominal examination, may indicate a firm, irregular pelvic mass to the physician. In addition to a complete medical history and physical and pelvic and/or abdominal examination, diagnostic procedures for uterine fibroid may include:

  • X-ray. Electromagnetic energy used to produce images of bones and internal organs onto film.

  • Transvaginal ultrasound (also called ultrasonography). An ultrasound test using a small instrument, called a transducer, that is placed in the vagina.

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A non-invasive procedure that produces a two-dimensional view of an internal organ or structure.

  • Hysterosalpingography. X-ray examination of the uterus and fallopian tubes that uses dye and is often performed to rule out tubal obstruction.

  • Hysteroscopy. Visual examination of the canal of the cervix and the interior of the uterus using a viewing instrument (hysteroscope) inserted through the vagina.

  • Endometrial biopsy. A procedure in which a sample of tissue is obtained through a tube which is inserted into the uterus.

  • Blood test (to check for iron-deficiency anaemia if heavy bleeding is caused by the tumour).

Treatment for fibroids

Since most fibroids stop growing or may even shrink as a woman approaches menopause, the health care provider may simply suggest “watchful waiting.” With this approach, the health care provider monitors the woman’s symptoms carefully to ensure that there are no significant changes or developments and that the fibroids are not growing.

In women whose fibroids are large or are causing significant symptoms, treatment may be necessary. Treatment will be determined by your health care provider based on:

  • Your overall health and medical history

  • Extent of the disease

  • Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies

  • Expectations for the course of the disease

  • Your opinion or preference

  • Your desire for pregnancy

In general, treatment for fibroids may include:

  • Hysterectomy. Hysterectomies involve the surgical removal of the entire uterus. Fibroids remain the number one reason for hysterectomies in the United States.

  • Conservative surgical therapy. Conservative surgical therapy uses a procedure called a myomectomy. With this approach, physicians will remove the fibroids, but leave the uterus intact to enable a future pregnancy.

  • Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH agonists). This approach lowers levels of oestrogen and triggers a “medical menopause.” Sometimes GnRH agonists are used to shrink the fibroid, making surgical treatment easier.

  • Anti-hormonal agents. Certain drugs oppose oestrogen (such as progestin and Danazol), and appear effective in treating fibroids. Anti-progestins, which block the action of progesterone, are also sometimes used.

  • Uterine artery embolization. Also called uterine fibroid embolisation, uterine artery embolisation (UAE) is a newer minimally-invasive (without a large abdominal incision) technique. The arteries supplying blood to the fibroids are identified, then embolised (blocked off). The embolisation cuts off the blood supply to the fibroids, thus shrinking them. Health care providers continue to evaluate the long-term implications of this procedure on fertility and regrowth of the fibroid tissue.

  • Anti-inflammatory painkillers. This type of drug is often effective for women who experience occasional pelvic pain or discomfort.

Can fibroids turn into cancer

Fibroids are almost always benign (not cancerous). Rarely (less than one in 1,000) a cancerous fibroid will occur. This is called leiomyosarcoma. Doctors think that these cancers do not arise from an already-existing fibroid. Having fibroids does not increase the risk of developing a cancerous fibroid. Having fibroids also does not increase a woman’s chances of getting other forms of cancer in the uterus.

Natural Remedies for Vaginal Cysts

Published

Share on Facebook0Share on Google+0Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on LinkedIn0

A vaginal cyst is a lump of fluid or semi-solid tissue that can develop along the walls of the vagina, usually near the opening of the vagina. They can range in size from as small as a pea to as large as an orange.

Vaginal cysts usually form when a gland or duct becomes clogged, causing liquid or another material to collect inside.

There are four different types of vaginal cysts.

  • Inclusion cysts are usually very small and located in the lower back of the vaginal wall.

  • Bartholin’s gland cysts are fluid-filled cysts that form on one of the Bartholin’s glands.

  • Gartner’s duct cysts develop when ducts in a developing embryo don’t disappear as they are supposed to after the delivery of a baby.

  • Mullerian cysts develop from structures left behind when a baby develops.

A vaginal cyst is rarely cancerous and, in many cases, it does not even cause any discomfort. Most often, cysts are discovered during a routine pelvic examination.

In most cases of vaginal cysts, treatment is unnecessary. Treatment is usually needed if you experience discomfort or pain due to the size of the cyst or if there is infection. In such a scenario, one can have symptoms like a soft lump in the vaginal wall, a protrusion from the vagina, discomfort during intercourse and difficulty inserting tampons.

To treat vaginal cysts, there are many simple and effective home remedies. These remedies also help fight any infection as well as promote healing.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for vaginal cysts.

1. Sitz Bath

Taking a sitz bath is beneficial for reducing the discomforts of vaginal cysts. It can help alleviate irritation and encourage healing by promoting drainage of the cyst.

Plus, sitz baths help keep the area clean and reduce the risk of an infection.

  1. Partially fill a bathtub with warm water.

  2. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt into the water.

  3. Soak just your genital area for about 15 minutes at a time or until the water loses its heat.

  4. Pat dry gently afterward.

  5. Take a sitz bath 2 or 3 times a day for a week.

You can also buy a sitz bath kit that you can put over your toilet seat to make soaking easier.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Another effective and easy remedy for vaginal cysts is apple cider vinegar. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar can help reduce the size and swelling of vaginal cysts.

As apple cider vinegar helps maintain the pH level of the vagina, it further reduces the risk of infection and even prevents the development of more cysts.

  • Mix 2 teaspoons of organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in ½ cup of warm water. Soak a cotton ball in this solution and place it directly over the cyst for 1 minute. Repeat 3 or 4 times daily for a few days. Or, you can leave in place for 20 to 30 minutes, once daily until the cyst softens. If you can bear it, then you can mix equal quantities of apple cider vinegar and water and use this solution instead. To help soothe the area, you can then apply coconut oil on the cyst.

  • Alternatively, pour 1 cup of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar into a bathtub filled with warm water. Soak your lower body in the water for 15 minutes. Do it 2 or 3 times a day.

  • Also, add 1 teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a glass of warm water and drink it twice daily to promote healing from within.

3. Warm Compress

Applying a warm compress to a cyst is another easy and effective way to soften it and encourage draining, which in turn helps in the healing process.

A warm compress also helps kill bacteria to reduce the risk of infection and it fights inflammation.

  1. Soak a washcloth in hot water and wring out the excess water.

  2. Hold the warm cloth on the affected area for a few minutes.

  3. Repeat 3 or 4 times a day until the fluid starts draining out of the cyst.

Caution: Take care not to burn the delicate tissue in the vaginal area.

4. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil can really help with the pain and inflammation associated with vaginal cysts. It is particularly good for treating bartholin cysts.

Not only the pain, tea tree oil also helps get rid of harmful bacteria in the vaginal area and thus reduces the risk of an infection. In fact, it helps drain the cyst within 1 or 2 days.

  • Mix 2 or 3 drops of 100% tea tree oil in 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. Using a cotton ball, apply this oil on the cyst. Leave it for 20 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Use this remedy once or twice a day or as needed.

  • Also, add 3 to 5 drops of tea tree oil to a cup of water. Use this solution to rinse the affected area a few times daily.

5. Turmeric

Turmeric also works great for treating vaginal cysts. The compound curcumin in turmeric works as an anti-inflammatory agent that helps fight pain and inflammation.

In addition, turmeric is a natural antiseptic, which means it can help prevent and treat any infection.

  • Mix 1 teaspoon of turmeric power and a little coconut oil to make a paste. Apply the paste over the cyst and allow it to sit for a couple of hours. Rinse the area with lukewarm water. Repeat again until the cyst bursts.

  • Also, drink a glass of hot milk with 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder mixed in it to promote healing and control pain.

Be careful when applying turmeric paste, as it can cause yellowish stains on fabric and skin.

6. Garlic

Garlic is another effective home remedy for any kind of vaginal cysts, mainly due to its potent antibiotic properties. It helps kill the bacteria present around the cysts, which reduces the risk of an infection.

When ingested, garlic also helps boost the immune system to help fight infections and promote healing.

  • Apply a little bit of crushed garlic on the cyst for 2 minutes. Rinse it off well with lukewarm water. You can follow up with application of coconut oil to reduce the stinging garlic might have caused. Do it 1 or 2 times a day.

  • Also, you can eat 1 crushed garlic clove 2 or 3 times a day, followed by a glass of water, to boost your immunity.

7. Aspirin

You can also use aspirin to cause the cyst to drain. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties help deal with the pain and inflammation as well as reduce the risk of infection.

  1. Crush a few aspirin tablets to powder form.

  2. Mix in a little water to form a paste. Instead of water, you can also use castor oil (the oil will also help reduce inflammation and aid healing).

  3. Apply this paste on the vaginal cyst.

  4. Leave it on for 5 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water.

  5. Do this once or twice a day.

8. Aloe Vera

To treat vaginal cysts, aloe vera is very effective.

It has healing and anti-inflammatory properties that help in the healing process and reduces inflammation.

  • Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe plant leaf and apply it directly on the cyst. Allow it to sit for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Repeat 3 or 4 times a day.

  • Alternatively, mix 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel with ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder. Stir until the mixture forms a paste. Apply the mixture on the cyst. Leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Do it once a day.

9. Yogurt

Another good ingredient that can be used to treat vaginal cysts is yogurt.

Being rich in lactobacillus bacteria, Greek yogurt helps restore the normal vaginal pH level. This inhibits activity of infectious organisms that can cause an infection, which would make the condition worse and delay the healing process.

Also, it reduces vaginal odor.

  • Soak a cotton ball in plain yogurt and apply it on the affected area. Leave it on for a few hours, then rinse the area thoroughly. Do it 2 or 3 times a day.

  • Also, you can eat 1 to 2 cups of yogurt daily.

10. Sepia

A time-tested remedy for vaginal cysts is sepia. Sepia is made from the dark, brownish-gray pigment obtained from the ink sac of the cuttlefish.

Sepia is an effective remedy for fighting inflammation and pain associated with vaginal cysts. It can also be used to prevent development of additional cysts.

It is readily available in homeopathic clinics in pellets or liquid form. For the correct dosage, consult your doctor.

Additional Tips

  • To prevent vaginal cysts, ask your partner to be gentle during sex.

  • Do not squeeze, scratch or puncture a cyst. Allow it to drain on its own to reduce the risk of infection.

  • Keep the area clean by washing it regularly with a medicated V-wash.

  • Never douche, as it can irritate the cyst.

  • If a cyst is painful, consider using a sanitary napkin instead of a tampon during your periods.

  • Maintain good hygiene habits to prevent infection of a cyst and the formation of an abscess.

  • To treat an infected vaginal cyst, you may need to take antibiotics.

  • You can opt for surgery to remove the cyst, if there is lot of discomfort or the cyst keeps returning.

  • Increasing your vitamin A, vitamin B and zinc intake helps promote healing of the skin tissues.

  • If recommended by your doctor, get a biopsy done to rule out the possibility of cancer.
