Hello doctor,

I am 19 weeks pregnant, since one week I had swelling on the vagina, yesterday I have consulted doctor, she told that is Bartholin cyst. She told me to clear it we have to give anesthesia for treatment and that will not affect the baby. My family is very confused, whether is it safe for baby or not?
