I just had a Pap...
I just had a Pap smear and everything came back normal. A few days ago I felt uncomfortable and my whole labia on both sides is swollen and on one side it feels like a few pea sized hard bumps and on the right side it's just one hard lump. Itches at times but probably because I check it a lot. Any idea? I have never had anything like this before

you most likely have a blocked bartholin's gland on your labia.

this is very common.

you should try some warm compresses on the area. this could help unblock the bartholin's gland.

you may need a course of antibiotics.

I was on keflex I just finished it today over he course of 10 days. And there's a few hard lumps on the left side as well is there more than 1 of those glands? Also my upper inner groin hurts when I push it kinda feels bruised. Any chance it would be a cyst? This doesn't sound like herpes or anything does it? Thank you.

blocked bartholins gland can cause barthoins cyst to be infected.

no, it doesn't sound like herpes

herpes could cause painful ulcers on your labia

this doesn't sound like painful ulcers.

Okay that's a relief. Everything on my pap was normal I never had a herpes test but I didn't think it sounded like that either. It doesn't really bother me during the day other than I know it is there and it is swollen. And it's on both sides of my labia down toward the middle on the right and upper middle on be left. And now my inner groin feels a little bruised. Are these common symptoms? I would have went to get checked but I'm out of the country right now and I did 2 warm compresses this morning. Thanks

sounds like bilateral blocked bartholin's gland or blocked bartholin's cysts going on

that is good you have tried the warm compresses so far.

when you get back home, you can see your doctor for evaluation

it doesn't sound like herpes outbreak

let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
