Are cysts more likely to develop (down there) during pregnancy?
I've heard cysts mentioned a few times, and I've also developed one in the past 2 months.
Mine is external, though, and oddly directly on the clitoris. My midwife said it was a nabothian cyst, another said it was a Bartholin's cyst. Looking online, it's neither of these. Looking online, I can't seem to find anybody who has developed a cyst ON their clitoris. It looks like I have two clits!

Oh man, that sounds rough. I'm sorry! I don't know anything about external cysts and their relationship to pregnancy. However, I have a friend who is pregnant every other year, and she struggles with a Bartholin cyst. She has tried all kinds of things to prevent it from coming back (natural stuff), but as far as I know, it still returns every now and then and has to be lanced. It's pretty painful, from what she says. I wonder if it could be related to pregnancy... hormones or increased blood flow or something along those lines?

I hope it goes away! I'm sorry I don't have any info to help.
