I've had Bartholins cysts before, and those were right at the entrance to my vagina. (They were diagnosed by an OB/GYN). These bumps are not in the same spot. I haven't been doing anything differently lately - except - for starting to take spin class and swimming a lot more. Although I don't wear tight bike shorts, I'm wondering if perhaps these activities are contributing to clogged hair follicles or something. I don't wax my labia, but I trim it and gently exfoliate with a sponge and warm water to try to prevent any ingrown hairs.
If anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to try warm compresses to see if I can get them to come to a head in case they're the sort of things that will do that, but other ideas about what they are and/or how to prevent them would be appreciated!
(Also, any ideas about how to make the seats of spin bikes less heinously uncomfortable would be welcome, too!)
