Help!! 

About a month ago I started to experience pelvic pain. That was really my only symptom. I have had two wet mount tests both of which have come back negative for yeast infection, BV, and trick. I have had STI screening and all of that came back negative. I had a vaginal ultrasound that showed cyst on my left ovary And a follow up with the CT scan that showed a moderately sized cyst. So the pain has been explained. During this process I have also experienced occasionally when the pain was really at it’s worst an uncomfortable feeling inside of my vagina. I simply attributed it to the cyst. However in the last couple days the feeling I would describe inside is more of an itch. What is it?????

    That is completely normal. Cyst typically hurt especially if they are on the ovaries. It's nothing to be concern about. The itch is just fluid from the cyst and which is normal. I did fertility for 4 yrs and this was a monthly occurrence for me so I know exactly what ur talking about and seriously u have nothing to worry about.

      So the pain has basically subsided, but the itch and irritability of my vagina has gotten more noticeable, especially the itch. How long will this last???

    It really all depends. There was one month I had it the entire month bc the cyst was large and fluid kept coming out if which cause irration and then sometimes just a few days. There's really no time line. Try witch hazel for the irration. I wouldn't put it internally but it does help with the irration on the outside.

      I appreciate your response. I’m trying not to have anxiety about it and any possible false negative testing results. I’m also upset my doc hasn’t thought to tell me this??  My cyst only measured 4.3 cm. I’m not sure how big that would be and the amount of draining. Is my pelvic pain less because it’s possibly draining?? I will definitely try witch hazel. Thank you.

    That is a typical normal size of a cyst. I wouldn't say large and probably wouldn't have a lot of drainage so the itching should have probably subsided by now. And no, my itching wasnt intense. Are you having any kind of discharge?

      And yes when the pain starts to subside it's usually the cyst is getting smaller. And ur doctor probably never mention bc not everyone itches. Another girl who was doing fertility with me when get tons of cyst, a lot more than me and she said she never had itching.
