Question What is this?

Hello. I am 22 years old. I have been am married for 3 years. I just recenttly found out I am pregnant with my second child. I have not yet been to my firt appointment with my OBGYN. Two days ago I started feeling a tender spot just above my clitoris. It wan't very painful. Then today I noticed a lump there. It is quite painful when pressure is applied. It even hurts to wipe after I use the bathroom. It looks and feels like a lump. I have never in my life experienced this! It scares me because I am pregnant. Could this be a boil of some sort? Or maybe an ingrown hair. It is really tender and sore. There seems to be no indication of an open sore or any oozing of infection. It's just a painful lump. When My pants rub against it, it hurts. What is this?! My husband thinks I am being crazy. He tells me it is a zit or something and it will go away. But will it? I am going to the OBGYN on the 26th of this month. But I can't wait that long to find out. Has anyone ever had something similar? HELP!

It could be a boil or it could be just about anything else. I do suggest you call your doctor either your regular doc or you OB and talk to them about it. If you call your OB see if you can get seen about it. If it is your regular doc he/she should be able to see you and check to what it might be.

You shouldn't have to put up with something that bothersome, call and make appt with doc to have it checked out. If you think it is a boil or pimple apply hot clothes to it to bring it to a head. I had a pimple down there once, but on the outside, when I finally could get something out it was like a huge white head with a bunch of hairs in it...but if yours is actually that close to your clitoris it could be something else. Go have it looked at for peace of mind!! Good luck Let us know what the doc says

What you had sounds exactly like what I had a couple months ago. Same location and everything. The bump got pretty large and painful before I went to see about it. Dr. said it was an infected follicle, and to apply hot compresses to it for 15 minutes a day. After about a week of following these instructions, it went away.
Don't worry!
