I have recently noticed a small bump on the outerpart of my vagina. It is small, round, smooth, and it does not hurt or itch or smell. Also I just recently got tested for STD's and it is not that. I have only been with one guy in my life, and he also got tested and does not have any std's. I have no idea what it is since every website automatically assumes if you have a bump down there it is herpes when I know for a fact it is not. Does anyone know what it could be? I am very curious and quite nervous.

Hpv... or more commonly known genital warts... they usually don't hurt will be small and may disappear within 2 to 3 months or may hang around for longer and may reappear elsewhere... I have them I know... sounds nasty but its not.. they never bother me and to be honest I never knew I had them... after I had my son they did my pap and I happened to ask them because I had noticed them(after you have a baby your always looking to make sure everything is ok) and she told me what it was... said it wasn't a big deal that 3 out of 4 people have them and it is one of the most commonly known stds in the US... but the ones I had just disappeared and now I don't have any... not saying they won't come back but its nothing to be worried about... talk to your ob...

Just got the herpes bit and no you don't have herpes... you would know if you had that because it would hurt like hell and look more like a little cut or open sore... but it does sound like hpv..

I had the same thing, but after a few years it can cause problems. I had to have a Procedure called LEEP, (they cut away part of the cervix) because after a while it can cause cancer, and I had the beginning signs of cell change which in turn becomes cancer.

It is N0T stds. I already got checked for that. It is one small bump, the same color as the rest of the skin. Its hard, not soft and it doesn't have any weird fluids coming out of it. Its just a little bump. It doesn't look funky or anything. I'm just worried cause it just appeared.

If it's not STD's, then it just might be an abnormal growth. If I were you I would consult with my GYN to see what it really is and let your GYN know that this "bump" is really bothering you and you are determine to find out what it is. If the out come of all your testing is still just a "bump", then try to worry too much, especially if it doesn't bother your partner. My best wishes to you in your research. And let us know what was the out come. :)

Not everything that goes on in the vagina area is herpes. Yes its almost everywhere,. but if you were tested you know you are clean. There is a name that is not coming to me right now, but they are common. Mstly in women beyond 35 but can occur at any age. No biggy.
During your next check up it can be froze off, or sooner if it interferes with your love life. And after a week at the most is healed and gone. If you ask around Im sure family members will also tell you, maybe, that it is common in some families.
Besides heredity, thongs, underwear can also cause a callous of sorts.

OK if it is small and the same color as the rest and hard then I am almost POSITIVE that its genital warts.. look I'm telling you I have them I know exactly what you are talking about and when I went for my pap they said nothing about it I had to actually ask them what it was but if you don't believe me call your ob and schedule an app to have it looked at but I can almost bet money on it that its genital warts...

ranieri I know what you are referring to and again if you are talking about freezing off then yes its warts... its not a big deal... doesnt make you dirty or nasty or anything like that... youd be surprised at how many people have them... its nothing to worry about... but the one thing you don't have is herpes I know that for sure..

So I went to the gyno for an annual visit and asked about the bump. She said that I had prollie gotten a small cut down there and fluids got in it. She also told me its very common and not be worried that it would go away on its on. So its not genital warts or cancer or any of those other things people have said. Its just a small harmless bump.

As many as 80 % of women get HPV human papaloma virus. They cause vaginal warts or bumps. They can be removed and most women develop an immunity to them after they are removed meaning just like warts on the hands they don't come back after immunity is developed. HOWEVER some strains cause cervical cancer although Thank God most strains do NOT. THIS is where the NEW COMMERCIAL for the HPV VACCINATION for young women is being aired now HAVE YOU SEEN IT>? I am in the NY NJ Area and it is running on TV all the time. It encourages women to get the shot to avoid the strains that cause cervical cancer in the future. HOWEVER there are MANY MANY strains of this virus and most are NOT CANCER CAUSING best to be safe than sorry. Check your boyfriends testicles as most men when they have the warts you will SEE TINY BUMPS on the scrotum but NOT ALWAYS the virus can be transmitted when NO Visible SYMPTOMS are there. GO to a doctor he can tell JUST BY SIGHT if they are vaginal warts. THEN he can remove them. Good Health and Good Luck. And Remember it can be ingrown hairs but they really wouldn't cause so many of these bumps you are talking about; nothing to be ashamed of. Warts are warts and unfortunately they can and do invade the genitals and young women are ESPECIALLY PRONE to them. Good luck sweetie. Because a doctor told a very good friend of mine the same thing and the dr was wrong. Very wrong. I agree with the others. That doctor that told my friend it was nothing>? That 'nothing' turned cancerous years later. Doctors are not GOD and I would get a second opinion I mean you came here for answers and everyone with PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE is telling you what to look for. But it seems you don't want to believe it and like I said that doctor my friend had made a terrible mistake. Please get a second opinion or don't blast everyone here that is trying to help you with some very very personal issues they are opening up to you about. That takes a lot of guts and caring for them to do.

Do you shave or wax? They may be ingrown hairs

Hi. My name is Briana =) No offense to some of the people on this board, but it doesn't seem as if everyone knows exactly what they're talking about.

Firstly, you cannot conclude that you are positive that some one has an STD simply by hearing something. You're no doctor you cannot diagnose anything.

If you've been checked, and apparently more than once, and your partner as well, and every time it's come out clear, then I'm sure it's not anything to worry about.

Having a bump doesn't automatically mean you're diseased or infected.

Imagine this, for instance. You shave your entire private area and your underwear rubs up against it and before the hair starts growing back you form small bumps around your vaginal/butt area (But not inside). This is called razorburn! Many people get it. On their face, under arms, legs and genital area.

Pimples (That are not related to disease or infection) can also grow because you have to understand that your vaginal area is not the cleanest place. Wearing certain types of underwear, having a bloody pad rub up against razor burn (Et cetera)trust me. It can be nasty. I'd know. I used to shave a lot and get bumps all the time.

In fact, they got so unbelievably infected once that I thought it was for sure I had an STD. I even broke the news to my boyfriend before even getting checked. He assured me it was probably only pimples but nothing anyone said would make me feel better. I knew for sure I'd contracted something (although I never "slept around".

I'd gone to the GYN and I'd had blood tests and a pap smear and had my fluids swiped. When I'd gone the bumps had cleared up a bit since I'd gotten them, and I'd had them for about two months without going away. It got bad when I'd get on my period and the bloody pad would rub against them it would make it worse.

Well all my results came back negative. Nothing at all. In fact, I was told it was infected razor burn and it tends to happen when a person uses a dull blade, it gets infected and then that's hot ingrown hairs happen, I believe.

Although this is not your situation I'm sure, I'm just saying it's ill minded to say that bumps are not normal. The vaginal area is just like every other part of the body when it comes to skin. If you can grow pimples or razor bumps on the face, legs, back or any other part of the body you can grow them there too. Apparently your GYN would know more than anyone else so. Just keep going for check ups to make sure everything is clear. Take care

Bri.

Jaxie, no offense but I think you've got the wrong idea. People don't just tell people what they want to hear. It's not their job to tell people what they want to hear. When I got checked and it came back negative I wanted nothing but the truth. They would not lie about something like this because it can affect that persons health and it benefits the person more to know than not know. The doctors certainly weren't hesitant in telling me I had Chlamydia. Glad it's not a regular permanent STD. I currently have a few tiny razor like bumps not near my vaginal area but instead by my leg area. (Bikini line) or whatever they call it. Of course I'm going to ask my GYN about it but let's hope that it's nothing to freak out about.

Hmm. Just checking in again. I see there aren't any further answers posted but just a heads up I went to the GYN today and had her observe the bumps I was talking about and she claimed it appeared to be razor burn and that using soaps down there is a bad thing. Apparently you're not supposed to use soaps to wash your area and it can affect the skin down there, which ultimately can cause infection which leads to bumps that can be mistaken for something else. I've been checked for STDs as well. Cleared. Hope that you've gotten all the answers you need though from your doc. Take care.

It could be something as minor as an ingrown pubic hair, the best thing is to get it checked out and ask your DR.

Hmm wow the same thing happened to me. The gyno can check for vaginal warts and if she/he said it's not HPV then its not. It just takes a little special vinager to tell. I went to my gyno 3 times before I actually trusted them. She told me "everyones vagina is diffrent, bumps show up and dissapear. Your vagina may change shape as you get older and do wierd things and thats normal". So as long as your discharge hasn't changed smell or color. I think your fine.

I wasn't really sure how to ask a new question about this topic, but, I have had little bumps around my genital area for a few months now. But now I noticed I have a large bump underneath the skin, much larger than before, and it really hurts. And I also have a similar under the skin bump a few inches up on my lower abdomen. I have no idea what it is, and I noticed somewhat of an odor when I started noticing the bumps. I've only been with one person, but not intercourse, and he gets tested every three months and is clean. I don't think it can be an STD. But I'm really scared that it could be a cyst. Is there a possibility that I am wrong, and it is an STD?

I am very curious and quite nervous.
I have noticed the dame thing and when I researched it. It came up with this site.
I too have just been tested as well as my partner. But the thing is I felt it appear... I was showering and washing and I felt a bump its like a bump that women get when they have breast cancer. Almost like an in grown hair but its too big its like a pimple 10x the size but its not open.. no fluids... no itching... it kind of hurts but that's cause its in an awkward place and its like I'm sitting on it. I'm veryy curious and want to no what it is.when it happened it did not inflame it was like the bump moved from inside kind of these things are hard to describe.

It sounds like you may have a hair follicle infection, which could definitley cause a cyst to enventionally form just beneath the skin. Cysts can be relatively harmless and usually disappear after awhile. If you have a strange odor, it's probably the kretin (sp?) in the cyst. If it's tender and sore, there's a chance it could be infected.

Obviously, to be on the safe side give your doctor a visit.

But I don't think it's anything life threatening.

First and foremost for anyone with a concern in this area, SEE YOUR GYN. It's much better to have him/her shrug off an issue as no big deal than to wait until you can't stand it any longer and it turns out to be something that "could have been treatable if we'd caught it earlier."

bahahaha, what you describe sounds like a cyst in the Bartholin's gland (the glands that produce the lubricant).
Bartholin's cyst - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartholin%27s_cyst)

Treatment in my case was quick and only mildly uncomfortable, the Dr. gave me a local anesthetic and opened/cleaned the cyst with a follow up visit to verify all was well. The cysts can sometimes reoccur weeks, months or years later and, like your tonsils, if the problem persists they can remove the problem gland altogether.

However, much better to have a physician examine and verify the problem.

HTH!

It just a hair bump don't worry

it just a hair bump dont worry

And you came to this conclusion, Doctor, having years of extensive training and having thoroughly examined the original questioner's visible, physical symptoms as well as her explanation of non-visible symptoms?

Honestly, did you read any of this thread? It very well could be a "hair bump," in which case it's no big deal. But there is a chance it could be something much more serious so when in doubt it's always better to speak with someone experienced in the field of your concern.

With your own body you are certainly well within your rights to "ignore it and not worry" but to give someone else that offhanded advice is extremely apathetic and irresponsible.

Small painless bumps on the vulva may be related to a yeast infection especially if you have been cleared by a doctor, but it is always best to be seen by your ob/gyn with issues "down there"

I have a small bump in between like my perineum and vagina, I felt it in the shower and freaked out but then remembered that this guy fingered me really hard a few weeks before and there was a tiny tiny bit of blood and I thought maybe he broke my hymen or what was left of it. I went to the doctor who said that she thought it was that too, and I didn't even mention that to her, so I was a little relieved. I went to another one, a specialist, who didn't even mention it, he said he saw a crack... but nothing serious. I've had some yeast infections this year and he said sometimes it takes a while to get back to normal.

So, don't jump to conclusions about STDs... if you've seen a doctor and they say it's okay then it's most likely okay. Plus, warts tend to appear in clusters and are cauliflower shaped... it's unsual to just have one. Though it is possible... and if you were only with one guy, you are at a very low risk for STDs in general. Though HPV isn't regularly tested for... he would know if he had warts and genital warts is rare, though regular HPV is more common, so be sure to get annual paps.

But it sounds like you are okay. The vagina is a complicated area... sigh, I'd love to have a penis!

I have the same issue. I wish I could remember what the ob said it was!! I'll repost when I remember, but I get random bumps that last a week or so then go away. I can be bump free for a while but the randomly get them again, but its NOT an std. Something like myodexia or something. Pretty much I have easily aggravated skin. I also had a larger "bump" on my upper inner thigh that was nothing more than a skin tag that I had removed at a regular check up. So don't freak out until you have a reason to freak out! And even then its probably not as big of a deal as you assume at the time.

Its so annoying how many people immediately say it is hpv when most of these people have no clue what hpv looks like. I have had hpv, what you are describing is NOT hpv. It sounds more like a ganglion cyst, in grown hair or a skin irritation. Only a doc will know for sure but try spreading the skin tight to see if the round bump slides or moves a little under the skin, that's a cyst. Hpv is on top the skin and won't move under it, also is more like a bubble.

I will try to help you, what do your bumps feel like? Are they under the skin or OK top of the skin? Warts can go away if the doctor gives you cream or you can put apple cider vinegar on them to make them turn to scabs and then pick or peel off. Do you have,warts?
