I have been feeling really uncomfortable recently.
It feels like there is something stuck in my vagina, I cannor feel it with my fingers but it feels like something is in there without touching it. I don't use tampons and I haven't had sex (approx a week) imediatly before it started happening.
What could this be?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. From your symptoms, it looks like a Bartholin's abscess or cyst. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholinâs glands.
These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard swelling. Other possibilities are sebaceous cyst, lipoma ,fibroma or viral warts. You should get a gynecologistâs examination and a per speculum done.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
