It is not caused due to intercourse or pregnancy
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX
You need proper clinical examination.It is not caused due to intercourse and it is not linked to your pregnancy.
Your problem may be due to Bartholin's cyst or abscess
.Cause of Bartholin's cyst is not known and its history is long.It is due to block of the duct that drains the fluid from Bartholin's cyst and their size varies.Where as Bartholin's abscess is a collection of pus that occurs due to infection.History of Bartholin's abscess is short and it is associated with pain,fever
.Abscess is treated with antibiotics and drainage
can be done if abscess is large in size.
So you should consult your gynecologist for detailed evaluation.It will not affect your pregnancy.
Proper treatment depend upon clinical findings.
It is possible to treat small Bartholin’s abscess at home with the use of sitz bath.Sitz bath will soothe your pain and discomfort. You can take three or four sitz bath a day,for at least 10 to 15 minutes each.
For large abscess,drainage is required.
Get well soon.
