Question: Bubble in the wrong place

 Naryl - Sun Oct 21, 2007 7:32 pm

I'm a 19 year old Japanese girl and while shaving I found a bubble on on the left flap on my vagina. My doctor is not answering his phone. This has got me pretty worried I'm hoping to get answer as to what this is soon.

User avatar I wonder if you have a bartholin gland cyst (fluid filled sac on one of the glands that lubricate the vagina. These are fluid filled and located in the place you describe. You would need to see a doctor for a firm diagnosis but if this is what you have it is quite harmless. They can be removed if they bother you.

Otherwise, it could be some other type of infected follicle or cyst but I would not be overly concerned about it.

Best wishes.
