@Stace126:  What you’re describing sounds like a Bartholins Cyst. I’ve copied and pasted a description below. Treatment generally involves a conservative approach with oral antibiotics first, if the cyst doesn’t drain on its own, a minor surgical draining and irrigation of the pocket is performed, followed with a mild medicated packing and sutures placed; performed while under anesthesia. This is actually something that happens more frequently than you’d expect! In the small hospital I work at I’ve seen about 6 of these in the last year. And yes, it is usually a sexual partner that finds the cyst before the patient even feels it herself. 

Of course you need to see a doctor for a diagnosis and treatment. I could be way off base here. But I thought I’d offer you this information, nonetheless. Just don’t panic. It is probably something very highly treatable! 


“Barthlin’s gland cysts are fluid-filled cysts that form on the Bartholin’s glands. These glands sit on either side of the opening to the vagina and produce the fluid that lubricates the vaginal lips (labia).”

It’s the B cyst that the PP is talking about. It has to do with adrenal glands. If you have a Planned Parenthood near you, they can treat it with an exam and oral antibiotics and a cream. Get it looked at soon otherwise it can get worse and require surgery.

I’ve had a bartholin cyst and I waited until I could barely walk to see a dr…I would go see a doctor this week if you can to keep it from getting worse. Mine was way too bad for just antibiotics and I had to go the “surgical” route in the ER.  Hopefully its not a cyst though!

if you don’t have insurance, go to your local Planned Parenthood, where you can get GYN care on a sliding price scale based on your income and some other factors. It’s a lot cheaper than going to a private practice doctor without insurance but you’ll still get to be treated by a licensed GYN, and they often have samples of the Rx you can take instead of paying for it at a pharmacy.

planned Parenthood is an incredible resource for all women!
