Had oral sex. Noticed slightly swollen bump on labia minora. Could it be an STD?

So my boyfriend and I have oral sex about once a week. He also like to finger me and from time to time he can get a little rough and it can be painful, but most of the time I don t really say anything. About 2 weeks ago when I was shaving my vagina, it felt like I may have irritated or cut the inside of my labia majora or the outside of the labia minora . The irritation got worse the next couple days, but I just figured I would let it heal on its own. The next day my boyfriend fingered me and he did again this past weekend. I finally made him stop because the pain was beginning to concern me. A few days ago I checked it and noticed a slightly swollen bump on the outside of my labia minora and it looks like there is a small circular cut above my clitoris that has the surface area of pea. I have no idea what either could be and don t think there is anyway it could be an STD based on mine and his sexual histories. Just please if anybody can help I d really appreciate it!

Hi there.

I read your detailed history & note your clinical features.

Relax, from all that you describe, it does appear that either there was a trauma during shaving the region & /or there is an ingrown hair that is the resaon for the 'bump' appearing.

Your boyfriend's close attention to the region will have further aggravated the issue. It is unlikely to be an STD per se. Please do take an antibiotic metronidazole based along with an antiinflammatory eg. ibuprofen both in a 400mg dose three times daily with of course the prescription of your GP & things should sort themselves out in 48 hrs. If in 72 hrs, there is no respite, then please do go visit your gynecologist/dermatologist.

Warm Regds,
