Question: PAINFUL LUMP IN VAGINA!
|maya123 - Mon Nov 03, 2008 10:30 pm|
yesterday i noticed a painful lump on the inside of my vagina. it can't be an std because i'm a virgin. the lump is about 4 to 5mm across and is the same colour as the skin around it although it is a little red. it is hard and it hurts every time it is disturbed (this even includes walking!)
please tell me what you think it is and if it's something i should be worried about. i thought it might be something to do with friction, do you think i should put on some kind of lubricant?

You could have an infected gland or cyst. You should see a doctor for treatment. Water-based lubricants won't hurt if that helps reduce the friction.

Thanks, it seems to be going away. I hope it goes away for good!
So you don't think it's anything too serious?
