Both partners "fixed" ovarian cyst right ovary, late period 5d, pain in ovary migraine that won't go away, what could be wrong?

I have ovarian cysts. I feel a bubble down by my clitoris but it's inside. It hurts. Is this a cyst? I got them before but they usually go away.

See your GYN: A "bubble" near the clitoris which is "inside" is still close enough to the surface not to be an ovarian cyst. It might be a Bartholin's cyst which has gotten large enough to be felt near the clitoris, though those glands are generally further towards the base of the labia. In any case, it's something you should have looked at by your GYN doctor, to see if it needs antibiotics or drainage. ...Read more
