    I don't know where the **** to post this and it might be TMI for some but I need help...

    Basically, for a couple of months I've been finding it difficult to put tampons in during my period, because I have some sort of lump/growth on the front wall of my vagina. It's located on the left, meaning I can still get a tampon in, but it sits, rather uncomfortably, to the right. This growth hasn't gotten any bigger since I first noticed it, being about the size of an oreo, but I know it hasn't always been there. I'm not sexually active yet, so it isn't as a result of an STI and I'm 17.

    Anyone got a clue what it is? It doesn't hurt or cause discomfort and isn't hard, in fact it feels almost fluid filled?

    Before anyone tells me to go see a doctor, I am, I've booked an appointment, but I want some sort of indication before I go

    A cyst or polyp would be one possibility, but you really need to wait for your appointment.
