Q: What is a ball like thing on the wall of my vagina?

My boyfriend told me that I had a ball like thing that is attached to the wall and is a little smaller than a dime. And he thinks after intercourse that is the reason why I sometimes bleed.

Hi Amanda,


I am not a physician, but it sounds like you may have a vaginal cyst.  Yes, you should go to your gynecologist!  If it is a cyst, they are treatable, and from what I've read tend not to re-occur.


If you've never been to a gynecologist before (or have only been one or two times), I know it can be anxiety provoking.  You can practice some abdominal breathing exercises, and also read 5 Strategies for Sailing Through Your Pap Smear, for some ideas about how to keep your anxiety low.
