Brief Answer:
Can be a blocked gland.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

The small itchy bump is not likely to be related to the insertion of hormonal pallet but it can cause some itchiness due to vaginal dryness.

The itchy bump can be related to a blocked gland in the area.

This usually subsides with a hot compress. In case it enlarges in size or becomes painful then a direct examination is needed for proper evaluation.

I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal, OBGYN
