Bartholin cysts

So, I'm pretty sure that I have two Bartholin cysts right now, being that I have one hard lump on each side of the lower entrance to my vagina. The one on the right showed up last Wednesday and I wasn't too concerned about it at first because I've had a cyst in that area before and it went away on its own in a day or two. But this one hasn't gone away. In fact, it's only gotten bigger (it's about the size of a large grape) and is causing me pain. Then, last Saturday, a cyst appeared on the left side. This one is smaller and less painful but it's very annoying to have two at the same time.

I've read up about Bartholin cysts online and have tried home remedies like taking sitz baths but nothing has helped. Now I'm afraid that they aren't going away and I'll have to call a doctor to have them drained. It makes me cringe just thinking about it. I don't know what caused this to happen to me. I was just at the gyno a couple weeks ago because I had a yeast infection. And it seems like right after that cleared up, the first cyst showed up. I just can't catch a break down there.

Anyway, I was just wondering if there was anything else I could do to try to make these things go away. Has anyone else gone through something similar? I really don't want to go back to the doctor. I'm working 2 retail jobs right now and I really can't afford to take any time off this month but my health insurance runs out on the 31st. :(
