It's the size of a grape, I can grab it in my fingers but it just won't burst. It's just inside my flaps. I will take some photos but they will be very intimate, I'll black out the actual crack of course!

Bartholins cyst? I recommend a bath as hot as you can stand and then have another go at popping it. See your gp though if it's really sore...they will have seen lots before.

I think it may well be. I think this is karma for all the cyst popping videos I've drooled over... it's not nearly as fun when it's your own!

It might be a Bartholin's cyst/abscess. They're found on both sides near the opening to the vagina but you can't usually feel them. if it's painful, it's probably infected and you will need antibiotics. If it's just swollen then the duct is probably blocked and you might be able to release it with warm compresses/bath/massage Occasionally they have to be removed with a small operation.

As hot a flannel as you can stand, then have another go.

But don't mess about with it too much in such a delicate area. Get thee to a GP!

Oooh are you me? Just came on to post this exact question! Mine is in the bit between front and rear hole <ahem>.
I have squeezed it gently and a tiny bit of pus but since then nothing and I dont want to squeeze too much.

Should you be trying to burst it?! What if it gets infected? I imagine it will hurt like hell too!

Do not squeeze it!! If it gets infected it will hurt like hell. Go to the GP!

I second the hot bath then try to draw it out with a flannel, hotter the better.

Gp is probably the sensible advice though.

I had fanny flap cyst that turned into a massive abscess. It grew from a hard pea size lump into a puss filled golf ball in five days. Was fascinating watching the head appear. No way I could have popped it though, the whole area became hugely swollen and painful. It then burst on its own Sunday lunch time and was quite amazing.

You should see a GP though for antibiotics to prevent infection. I felt quite ill once it popped. I ended up in A&E and booked in for surgery.

Hey guys

Sorry to be a massive tease - it has burst of its own accord! And before I got a photo. The remaining lump is still red and sore so I will definitely keep a close eye on it tomorrow and get antibiotics if needed.

Mine had a yellow head this morning. I just prodded it and a thumbnails worth of lovely gunk came out - sweet relief as it had become quite painful!

I am taking the precaution of wiping after toilet with wet wipes (as its sore) and applying sudocreme. I am working from home today so have been laid out on the sofa with legs spread to let the air in. There is still a lump so I expect more will come out.
