Ok. So since the post I made a few days ago I've def learned more than I ever thought I would about BC and I'm still confused!
At this point I l've gathered that my case is mild. I have no pain (and when I did it was mild), no swelling, no abscess, no pain while sitting or walking. I can't feel a single trace of it until I actually use my fingers to examine myself. In fact, the cyst is so deep inside me it seems more like the gland itself is swollen and that's it. Is that even possible? Overall I would venture to say it's smaller, but it's kinda hard to be sure. My BF felt it and said it was.
I've been on antibiotics for five days now, two to go. Because I know my cyst isn't infected, I now know the antibiotics will probably do nothing more for me as far as reducing the size. My doc def just gave them as a precaution. I guess I can't be mad at her for not giving me the full picture on these things, by others would be led to believe they could just take pills and it will go away, which is not always the case.
I know most people who post on here have more complicated stories and issues surrounded BC which I really feel for you all, but none of them really relate to me at all besides the painless grape sized cyst. Has anyone had one of these that just took a while but went away on its own? How long did it take? Since the first time I had pain up until now it's been 3 weeks for me.
I've had a tremendous amount of mental anguish over this stupid lump. The physical pain I felt was nothing compared to how upset it's made me. My mind is starting to have me think 'well maybe it isn't a BC..maybe it's something else..' which is a terrifying notion, however the description and area of it seem spot on for BC. Ugh. So over it.
