User avatar Hello,

This is more likely to Bartholin's glands problem like cyst or abscess.
There are two Bartholin’s glands at the inside of the vulva near the entrance to the vagina posteriorly. They secret mucus-like fluid.

When their ducts are blocked they form cystic swelling filled with fluids. Bartholin’s duct cysts are usually unilateral and non tender, and palpable which may cause minor discomfort during intercourse.

If they became infected they form small abscess.
Both conditions are mild and antibiotics may be needed for infection treatment.

Other causes to be excluded are dermatitis due to friction or infections like Candida. STDs should be excluded too.

Direct clinical examination is essential. So I would advise you to follow up with your doctor.

Please keep us updated.
Best regards.
