hello welcome to healthcare magic. from what you describe either you have a bartholin cyst or a dermoid like lump in your labia. do not worry. you should go get yourself examines by a gynaecologist . you will nedd some antibiotics and also some slight removal of the cyst/lump after examination.

Hello, about a week ago my husband and I had sex, the next day I felt as if I had to pee very frequently. When I would pee it was a normal amount. As time went on I could also feel throbbing inside of my vagina. Now it has been a week and my labia minora is swollen on the right side and I have cramping in my side around the hip and sometimes my lower back on the same side. The swollen labia is only about the size of a pea and is sore to touch. I do not have any discharge, burning urination, or weird odors. What could this be?

I am 41. I am going in for my 8th laparoscopy tomorrow for yet another painful ovarian complex cyst. This time my Dr. has suggested the removal of this ovary. My last cyst was removed 18 months ago. I lost my left ovary to a large dermoid cyst in 2009. Heading into surgical menopause makes me nervous. I know how my body reacts to a laparoscopy, but how will I feel if I am thrown into menopause? Do I just have the surgery and remove the ovary, to do it again in another 18 months, or just take out my last ovary now and move one. I am so confused.

I have clear fluid like water coming from my vagina-not urethra. I can not feel it happen and only notice when I stand up and see a wet spot on a chair or clothing. There is no odor, pain, itching, color...clear and the same consistency as water. This has happened once before when I did NOT have my period. I have endomitriosis and have had my menstrual cycle since 6/13...the past 4 days with fever, nausea, swollen gums and diarrhea-all normal for me during a bad endo phase. Probably unrelated, but I have a Primary Immune Disorder, CVID Ocular Sarcoidosis, Sjogren s, Asthma, and have had my right ovary and fallopian tube removed when a dermoid tumor grew very large and attached to both organs.
