Hey,
I hope i'm posting this in the right section, it's been a while since I used Scarleteen!
However, I discovered something a bit disconcerting last night while i was masturbating [yes, it does serve purposes other than purely pleasure!!]. I'd had a little pain, feeling bruised almost, around my vulva and pubic bone, which i put down to cycling a lot and having had quite a lot of sex. But last nite, while having a little rub, i found a kind of lump, under the skin, above my clitoris, and to the right if looking from above. I got a bit worried so investigated further, and it looks as though my labia on that side is a little swollen; has anyone got any ideas as to what it could be?
I want to book an appointment with a doctor, but i'm not sure whether I should go to my usual doctor, or to a GUM clinic, I live in the UK and don't have a specific gynae of my own...

Thanks a lot for any opinions!

-Ruthie

In the UK, your GP would be the person to start with - they can give you a basic check-up and refer you to a specialist if needed.

Cheers!
Been looking at a coupla things and i think it
*might* be a yeast infection, as i've got a bit of itching, and apparently swelling occurs too but i'll go have it checked tomorrow, and we'll see.
