Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Bumps on my vagina?


Hello, I am 15 years old going on 16 very soon I've had a itch only on the inner of my vagina lips for about 9 years. I checked my vagina and on the inner lips there are small bumps. The bumps are no where but on the inner lips. It leaves my vagina with not so good of a smell and a very little bit of white discharge. This has been going on since I was about 6 or 7 so of course I was still a virgin. I am in real need for help? Please and Thank you.

Sounds very much like a yeast infection possibly. For women, I would advise them to be cognizant on the natural fluids that their vagina makes. Vaginal fluid should never have odor, color, or thickness; it should be slightly translucent. As this is a non-sexual related question, the bumps you refer to are probably papules, which don't usually present any risk or indication of an STI or ailment. However, in your case, they could be a sign of a pre-cancerous growth, in which case I would recommend you highly see your specialist OBGYN or primary care provider for follow-up and let me know how things go!
