I went to have a Bartholin cyst removed on the inside vaginal wall. When the doc cut into she found in wasn't a cyst at all it was a blood clot. She said she had never seen one of these in that place before. What caused it and what do I do now?????????? It is very sore and burns alot today.
I am not sure. I also haven't heard of that. The only thing I can think of is that some sort of trauma (tampon, intercourse) caused the clot. Are you on any medications that cause increased bleeding? Heart medications, aspirin and antidepressants can cause you to bruise and bleed more easily. It is likely just one of those freaky things that happens. But, your doctor is the best one to consult about it. It will take time to heal. I doubt it will recur.
