Sexually Transmitted Diseases/bumps or skin tags


I have bumps or skin tag looking things around my vagina opening they are skin color and I have done some research and it doesn't look like and type of disease from what I could tell but I does look like bumps that should go away except i've had them for a couple months i've only had sex with one person and we both lost our virginity to each other so what could it be? I am very stressed out .. when we have sex more fluid seem to come out then usual and i'm worried that I might have a std but how is that possible if we were both virgins also my boyfriend has no bumps so im very confused

Unless someone gives me their test result from an STI panel, how do you KNOW someone doesn't have anything? He could have bubonic plague and pass it to you without your knowledge, so be an advocate for your own health and wellbeing! Skin tags in the groin area, and generally for a lot of people are normally harmless provided they stay the same size and don't multiply en masse. If that happens then I would expect HPV or genital warts, but warts GROW, skin tags usually don't. The fluid you're describing is normal during intercourse and even masturbation so you will have to get used to that. If your telling me about "bumps" then it could also be papules, which again are harmless provided they don't grow. If you have follow-up questions, then please contact your primary care provider or OBGYN specialist and stay safe.
