About once a year every since i was 16 I would get pain in my vaginal region. I would take some gloves and a mirror and look to see if i could feel what it was. It was like a ball of something stuck inside the skin of one of my vaginal lips. I would often wonder how the hell it would get there. I wold often have trouble walking and be in pain with lots of discomfort. I did some research today and I found out what it is. It's called a Bartholin's cyst. When I was underaged I wouldn't tell anybody because adults make assumptions that when people complain about pain or soreness in their vagina that means sex. After about a week it would burst and some gross liquid would come out. Below is a link to what it looks like. I must also note mine isn't as big as the one pictured. Mine is about the size of a moth ball. THIS IS AN ACTUAL PICTURE, NOT A DRAWING! Drainage, Bartholin Abscess: Treatment & Medication - eMedicine Clinical Procedures and this is what wikpedia says: Bartholin's cyst - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I don't have any health insurance so I can't do anything about it. I've always been told cysts were bad and it makes me think about cancer were I hear talk about cysts but i'll live....i guess .This sucks but atleast Sarah Palin is pleased to hear im not insured. Remember, budgets come before human lives.
