Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Black spots on labia can be due to one of following reasons.

1.Warts; These are viral infections and common in sexually active persons.

2.Fungal infections;They are associated with itching.

3.Manipulation of labia with depilatory creams leading to allergy and black spots.

4.Angiokeratoma;These are tiny spots of blood vessels .They become thrombosed leading to black spots.

Considering your age I can assume black spots can be due to angiokeratoma.But it is somewhat difficult to make exact diagnosis without visual impression.It will be better if you upload a photograph if possible.

Bleeding from vagina if is in small amount then you need not to worry much.

If in case there is profuse bleeding then you need to consult your doctor.

In summary black spots can be due to angiokeratoma and somewhat bleeding is common from them.It is a harmless condition and there is nothing much required.

I hope this can solve your query.In case you have any concerns I will be happy to help you.

Take care.
