Blocked lymph ducts: This could be due to blocked lymph ducts which could cause fluid accumulation in the area. Obesity could be the underlying cause of this but there is no way for me to tell without an examination. If the swelling gets worse I would recommend seeing a doctor in person.

Could exercising with a waist trainer cause a swollen mons pubis? And if so how can it be reduced or treated?

Could exercising with a waist trainer cause a swollen mons pubis? And if so how can it be reduced or treated?

The big squeeze...: If swelling began after using the trainer, and wasn't there before using the trainer, then there is a high probability that the restricting effect of the trainer is the culprit. Depending on what tissue was strained, it could take days to weeks for resolution, providing no further irritation occurs.

Abscess?: An abscess can cause local swelling, hardness, and pain. It is sometimes accompanied by skin redness and/or fever, but not always. Please see a doctor in person for evaluation; if you have an abscess it may need to be drained (a simple office procedure), and/or require antibiotics. Good luck!

Can you tell me how I can reduce a large mons pubis?

Can you tell me how I can reduce a large mons pubis?

Weight loss: In the setting of prominence of the mons pubis, there is really nothing that you can do to reduce its size. It is an area where most of what is under the skin are fat cells. Weight loss and exercise will almost certainly help.

My mons pubis feels a lot thicker and larger now. Why?

Mons pubis: The mons pubis is susceptible to sebaceous cysts, swelling due to lymph accumulation, swelling due to surgery such as liposuction, skin tumors, and fat accumulation. With pregnancy swelling of the vulva and mons can occur. See your doctor and get examined.

Hello, That other day I felt a hard bump on the right side of my mons pubis...it didn't hurt or itch at all. What could it be?

Hello, That other day I felt a hard bump on the right side of my mons pubis...it didn't hurt or itch at all. What could it be?

Many things: There are many things that can create a painless bump in the mons pubis or vulva. An inclusion cyst or blocked hair follicle can cause a painful or nonpainful bump. A wart from n HPV infection of another viral infection, molluscum contagiosum, can be present and create nonpainful bumps. Syphilis, too, may create such lesions though they are usually short lived. See your doctor if it persists.

Puffy mons pubis?: Unfortunately, the mons pubis is made up of fat and hair follicles that can be "puffy" even in thin women. There are not any specific exercises that reduce this area however, general fluid and weight reduction can make this area less prominent with exercise.

I have a large mons pubis and I really wanna loose the fat around there, is there anything I can do for excercise? I don't want to get surgery

Weight loss benefits: Diet, weight loss, exercise and time can get results for you. The fat pad over the mons pubis can be quite large, so be patient. As you lose weight and tone all your muscles this fat pad will respond, however it might not respond first or as fast as other areas. Good luck.

Bumps on Mons pubis. Latest one is from shaving and it's painful but feels like it needs to pop. Help? Also have "older" bumps that don't go away

Ingrown hair: Some times shaving will irritate the skin, and make you susceptible to infection of the hair follicle. After a follicle gets infected, it can lead to scarring and permanent bumps. For this bump that feels like it needs to pop, you may be right. Soak in a hot bath to help soften the skin, or use warm wash cloths as a compress and soften the skin. Stay clean and dry. Avoid lotions or creams.
