I had unprotected sex about 9 days ago and I am terrified of contracting herpes I felt like i had the flu a few days ago had a fever and stomach pains, there were no symptoms down there though. Fever went away but i still have terrible stomach pains and indigestion Im stressing out way too much but when i checked down there i noticed two small red bumps on the outside of my labia, they dont hurt to the touch but they are there and have been there for about a day. They are slighly irritated. If these were herpes sores they would hurt right? Could this just be normal irritation?

Hi, I have one bump on my labia majora that showed up 5 days ago. The bump looks like an ingrown hair, but I can t see a hair inside. Since I can t see a hair inside, I am freaking out that I could have herpes. The last time I had sex was 4 weeks ago. Do you think this is something that I should be very concerned about?

I have genital herpes and I am super safe sexually and a few weeks ago I thought I was having an outbreak. There was a bump but it never went away. It s on the Labia minor, near the urethera. It s flat and slightly raised. Like a blister, hardly noticable, and the same color as the skin in the labia minor. I have no other symptoms at all and I always have the talk before I get involved intimitately with a boyfriend and always use condoms. I m still afraid... It looks nothing like a wart but that s what I m afraid it is. I used to use the shower head for self pleasure so it could be scar tissue and when I fell on my bike and hit my lady part, I think it inflamed it. But now I m too afraid to go to the doctor for fear they ll tell me I have another STD and that s a huge source of anxiety for me. Should I be worried or could it just be scar tissue from the bike and the shower or from a healed herpe?

I had safe sex (with a condom) with a now ex about 2 weeks ago, i just discovered was cheating. I noticed a small hard bump on my labia majora. It is uniform and feels like a ball under my skin, i pricked it with a pin and white pus and blood came out. I m covering it with an antibiotic cream. There is only one spot, raised, about the size of a pea and not really painful unless i squeeze it. It is in an area that i shave and would be prone to irritation. Is this an ingrown hair or something more serious?

Over the last month I have had some vaginal discomfort. I first noticed a tingling sensation on my outer labia , which eventually turned to itching. I then began noticing the skin looked red, swollen, and shiny like it was wet. However it was really dried out. And recently it started peeling in large dry flakes. I ve never had sex, but have messed around with my boyfriend. However not since this discomfort started back in late September. I ve also started noticing the my discharge has white stringy and ball looking material in it. It is however odorless and mostly white or maybe creme/yellowed hued at times. I also know I have cysts which could contribute to the discharge. But I am still bringing this up to see if it has anything to do with the dry flaking, and itching labia. Thanks for your time.
