Have painful lump on labia discharging yellow liquid. Had cysts that go away. Reason?

Hi. I am currently 15 weeks pregnant. I developed a small lump on my right labia toward the lower portion of my vagina . I waited and waited for it to come to a head but it never happened. I have in the past gotten cysts down there during menstruation but it would always go away. This one has just gotten bigger and more painful. At one point it started leaking so I looked at it closer and thought it was ready but only yellowish fluid came out. Then it stopped. Well yesterday it started leaking again. Again I looked at it, squeezed it some and more yellow fluid, then pink and some blood . Then back to yellow. I don t get it. My next OB appt isn t until 3/11. Help!

Hi thanks for your question
most probably you got bartholin cyst which got infected.Bartholin glands are normally present in vagina,and produce screations for lubrication of the vagina.These glands produce cyst when their duct get blocked ,due to infection or any other reason.Infection in cyst could produce pain,swelling and discharge.Consultation with gynaecologist is advisable,who may drain this swelling or may prescribe you medicine.As your appointment with your gynaecologist was on 3/11,i think by now the issue must have got resolved.
Hope this answers your question.
