Happy Monday, everyone!

My ladyparts felt a little sore last night, and that's unexpected as there hasn't been any activity there in a ridiculously long time.

So I did ye olde grab a hand mirror, spread'em, and take a look-see. Turns out I have a cyst on my labia. I googled that, it's apparently a somewhat common thing to happen since a gland down there can get inflamed or clogged or infected.

Self care basically was soaking in hot baths and hot compresses (although how you hot-compress your vulva area, I don't really know...). On the upside, I love baths!

So my question is this โ€” have any of y'all had this happen?

Secondary question โ€” how long until it went away? It doesn't look anywhere close to needing to be lanced/or bursting. And it's less red and inflamed than last night (It was almost the size of a pea. What the fuck, labia??? I thought we were cool, ya know, since I took care of you wink wink nudge nudge.)

I won't be able to go to the doctor until next week at the earliest (unless shit gets weird, in which case ER here I come).
