I feel a lump inside my vagina


Q: I feel a lump inside my vagina (not very deep in) which has caused discomfort not pain when having sex. Other than that I didn't even notice it. When having sex, my partner also feels it. Any ideas what this could be?


A:   Thank you for writing to ATD.

A lump inside the vagina may be a vaginal cyst, a vaginal septum or a cervical or uterine polyp. A medical examination is needed to differentiate these conditions. A vaginal cyst may just be there without causing any pain. Polyps are likely to bleed at times, which is why most patients get alarmed or seek treatment for. A vaginal septum may cause discomfort during intercourse as well. Some conditions can be managed by minor surgical procedures. Please see your Gynaecologist.

Hope this helps.
