Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

As far as STD's go, you have been checked out yourself, your boyfriend has been checked out, and it sounds like it has not changed for 4 months - this is likely not an STD. In terms of POSSIBLE STD's, it might represent something called 'molluscum contagiosum'. You can easily google images of this and see if it fits.

Other explanations for 'bumps' around the vagina include sebaceous inclusion cysts.

If it is not painful and is not a problem, then it is likely a normal anatomical change. Hopefully once you have insurance, you can get it checked out. It would be a simple matter to diagnose it on exam!

Good luck!
