It might be a bartholin cyst, super common amongst women. NOT AN STD SO DO NOT FREAK OUT OVER MESSAGE BORDS OR WEBMD. It is what happens when the bartholin gland becomes blocked or pinched and is no longer able to provide fluid to the vagina causing a back up. Go to your gyno to get it drained that way you have a better chance of it not reoccurring. They will give you a numbing shot then cut open the cyst and drain it, sometimes they can put a draining tube in it sometimes they can't. If they can not just take a few sitz baths to get the remaining fluid out. They may also subscribe you antibiotics to reduce the chances or a reoccurrence. It is important that you go to your gyno because they will test your vaginal fluid / cyst fluid and call you if anything comes up. AGAIN THIS IS JUST A GUESS SO GO TO YOUR GYNO.
