JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I have seen a doctor but she was not able to evaluate. I am not on any oral medications. I do have a mirena implant.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have been on some form of birth control for about 10 years. The cyst appears after I have sex or masturbate. It is closer to the clitoris than the vaginal opening.
JA: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?
Customer: Yes, it is. My health is excellent. I am rarely sick, I am active, I eat well, and I don't smoke.
