Am pregnant. Have painful pus filled blister in vagina. Had it during last pregnancy. Cause?

I am 14 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby. I am 21 years old. The first time I was pregnant towards the end of my pregnancy I developed this yellow filled blister looking thing towards the lips of my vagina . I popped it and yellow thicker fluid ran out and was mixed with blood. The dr. told me it was a clogged mucus duct and It would go away. Never had it again. I just went to the bathroom and noticed that I have the same drainage again but its not that swollen and hurts severly I know that it is the same thing because of the color and look of the pus but it is way more painful, and its more early on. It just worries me I do not want something to be wrong that could jeapordize me and the baby. You can literally milk it and stuff just continually poors out. and its only on the right side both times the exact same spot on the right side.

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

While this sounds like a clogged duct, like your doctor had previously supposed, the other possibility (given its re-occurrence in the same location and significant pain) is a recurrent herpes blister. This most definitely needs to be checked out within the next 24 hours and a herpes culture done on the fluid within the cyst. Active herpes at the time of a delivery is dangerous for your fetus. At this point, if this is what it is, it can be treated and suppressed so that risk of harm is minimal to none.

I hope that this helps and good luck!
