See Surgeon: Some abscesses get "WaLLED off" and you may require and Incision and drainage with "Cystectomy"-where the Surgeon numbs you up and takes out the whole core/cyst, so it does not keep returning. Groin abscesses are notoriously hard to treat, and can often arise in different areas if not aggressively treated. Best wishes.

Prenatal Vitamins: Yes, the pregnant female can start taking prenatal vitamins. I would recommend calling the Doc you will see in 2 weeks and ask their staff to give you recommendations to what Prenatal vitamins they recommend and then you are a step ahead of the game and on the same page with the Doc. Best to start the Vits in the first trimester. Best wishes. Congrats!
