bumps on the vag
bumps on the vag  
I'm 18 and sexually active. I've had a lot of sex recently with my boyfriend a lot, we've been sexually active together for about 3 months now but never this much in one week and later on today I found bumps on the lower part on my vag. they don't hurt or anything but I'm still worried about it. I've researched things that sound like it but I'm getting mixed answers. should this be something to worry about?


Those are squamous papilloma and are considered to be pretty normal and quite common. Though its recommended to get them checked out as part of a pap smear whenever you visit your OBGYN provider. Make sure to have a pap every 3 years to check for cervical cancer risk and HPV among other things, but they are not to be confused with any disease nor are they are they abnormal. In fact, they are part of your normal anatomy and women experience them as they sexually mature. If you have follow-up let me know.
