Question: I have some bumps on my mons pubis near the labia majora that when i try to pop, bleed profusely. I asked my Gyn if it was genital warts, and she merely said they were razor burn. that was two weeks ago and they have not gone away even after not shaving. They arent painful and they dont itch. they started as flesh colored but now are a bit more pink.

Thanks for your query.

The images sent by you reveal bunch of grouped vesicles on an erythematous base. Similar vesicular lesions are seen with herpes infection. If you have been active sexually, this might be related to herpes.

I suggest you to consult another Gynecologist who can examine the lesions and perform tests like PCR and HSV Antibody test to confirm the diagnosis and plan essential management.

Meanwhile do apply Acyclovir ointment on the lesions, twice daily. If the lesions are due to herpes, the ointment will contain the infection and prevent progression.

Hope I answered your query. Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Would this also make my labia minor sore and itchy? I have had a yeast infection recently but my gyn had given me a pill that i took that resolved the issue for a little but its starting up again. could it be something more than a recurrent yeast infection?

Thanks for writing back.

Yes, Herpes can sometimes make the inner labia itchy and sore.

Yeast infection usually presents with white curdy vaginal discharge with intense itching. If you have above symptoms then possibility of recurrent yeast can be considered; but the lesions are unlikely to be related to yeast.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

I am 32 weeks pregnant, and this is my 3rd pregnancy. I am having enough clear, kind of sticky vaginal discharge that I have had to were a panty liner since I woke up this morning. Not feeling any contractions at the moment. BUT what scares me, is with my second pregnancy, after my water broke, I wasn t feeling the contractions for the first 3 hours after my water broke. The reason I know this is because I had gone to the Dr. And she had me hooked up to the monitor and it was detecting some strong contractions. Should I wotry about this discharge I am currently having?

I have had the Mirena for nearly 4 years now. I do not have periods. However, if I am very stressed out, I get horrible cramps and spot for a day or two. My concern, more, is that I have a clear, mucus , sticky discharge from my vagina . Comes out all times of day and night (I ve began to wear pantiliners because of this) and more recently, when I am using the toilet, quite a lot comes out. I ve read that mostly, this would occur during ovulation . But I am concerned/curious as to what is causing this and if I should be worried. There is no pain or itching, aside from occassional cramps that I have considered normal since I had the Mirena placed.
