Hello, I haven't been sexually active for 5+ months (I always use protection) and I noticed these scary looking bumps and i was wondering if this is something to be worried about or not? thank you!

Those are called papilloma's, which are an occurrence of papillomatosis, which can be likened to HPV, or human papilloma virus, which is the virus that causes genital warts. If you're curious as to what it really is, then please consult your OBGYN, so he/she can offer a pap to determine which strain it really is, but I wouldn't be to concerned about because it is VERY common. Hope this helps.
