Question: Causes of enlarged Skene's Gland?
|findingthetrueme - Thu Mar 02, 2006 2:36 pm||
I am 28 y/o, two children, no history of STD's or UTI's.
My dr. is sending me for a pelvic ultrasound because she said I had an enlarged Skene's gland.
What would cause this?
I first noticed it when I had trouble with penetration while having sex. If I bear down just a little bit, it literally will start to come out of me. I have no pain with this at all, no problems urinating.
Thank you in advance.

A blocked/infected Skene's gland will cause enlargement. An enlarged Skene's gland or paraurethral cyst is typically identified upon examination by your physician due to its appearance. Enlargement typically reduces the size of the urethral opening and may cause pain with urination.
