I have, I feel like I have more signs of inflammation when my period starts. I take epsom salt bath mixed with peppermint and tea tree oil

Sure you can. Blood is not going to cause a concern. Please get it lanced before it gets too big. My aunt had it inside her vagina, it's a sensitive spot but you can still lance it.

I've had surgeries when I've been on my period, It's no big deal for the doctors :) They have seen it all. I hope it drains for you soon, When I'm like this I take lots of baths, with 500g sea salt. It helps me a lot. xx

Yes you can have surgery in that area. Your doctor will give some medicine to stop your period.

Yes. If you are self helping. Take a bath as hot as you can stand with some Epsom salt. It helps until I can get to my doctor. If it hurts so much it steals you breathe or makes your heart hurt.. Seek medical help immediately!
