JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Gynecologist should be aware of?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello- It sounds like this may be an infected cyst or an abscess

From your description I would suggest you need to be seen in person by a gynecologist and you may need it lanced open.

Until then you can try warm Sitz baths - but you really need to be seen in person

Good luck. and please rate the reply to credit me for my answer
