About 2-3 weeks after I had a bikini wax I noticed a small bump, purple in colour developing right along my bikini line! At first I though it was an ingrown hair - but I couldnt see a hair. I then pierced a needle through the lump and squeezed out the fluids. It looked like blood & a clear like substance coming out. Needless to say the lump didnt go away. Im trying to fall pregnant and dont want to take any medication i.e. antibiotics. What can it be and what do you suggest I do?

It could be an infected sweat gland or hair follicle. Try hot compresses. If this does not help, you may need to take antibiotics.
