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

Every time I have sex I am getting cysts. They are not bartholin's cysts. They appear above my clitoris, on my inner and outer labia and thigh crease?
Cysts: What you describe sounds as if you may have an infection or other condition that recurs with sex. You didn't mention whether the cyst is painful, appears in the same areas each time, or if there are things that make it worse. Some of these answers may help with diagnosing the cause. I would have the cyst looked at by your doctor while it is still there so they can determine the cause. ...Read more

In skin creases the exfoliated skin gets trapped and accumulates and that is the condition you described. Is using a washcloth to scrub in these areas helps eliminate the smegma. ...Read more
