Ovarian Cysts And Genital Herpes
What's the difference between a cyst and genital herpes? How would these two different things appear in the vagina?
Cyst vs gen. herpes: The bartholin's glands (which secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina) are located on each side of the vaginal opening. If glands become obstructed, then fluid starts to back up into the gland, turns into bartholin's cyst(under skin lump).Genital herpes are usually small red bumps or tiny white blisters may appear.Cyst=lump under skin, genital herpes=small white blisters. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more

I have 3 ovarian cysts, one on tube. Have fluid in pelvis. Getting us in a few weeks. Now abnormal pap. Getting colposcopy. Should I be worried?
Don't worry, but: whoa! Ovarian cysts aren't on tubes so you either have 2 ovarian cysts and one tubal (?), or 3 ovarian cysts. This is not to worry about by itself. Fluid in the pelvis? All people have small fluid, and all women have fluid around ovulation and around menstruation. Fluid doesn't automatically mean problems. Bad Pap goes with colposcopy but not the other issues. Your doc can clarify more. Best! ...Read more

Had ruptured ovarian cyst due to fluid found in pelvis from CT scan. Have been nauseous for a week & spitting constantly since then - help!
See Answer: The ovaries are dynamic organs, with developing follicles that mature, “rupture” – and release the egg at about 22-25mm, and regress. This physiology may cause “mittelschmerz” or ovulation pain that could last for a few days. This is not uncommonly accompanied by some slight fluid in the cul –de - sac or adnexal areas of the pelvis. If symptoms or concern persist please see your dr. To insure. ...Read more

At the time of ovulation, an egg is released from the follicle. Sometimes a normal follicle keeps growing resulting in a follicular cyst. If the report does not mention polycystic ovaries, you should not be concerned. ...Read more
