Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Strange bumps


Vestibular papillae
Vestibular papillae  

I have been in my current relationship for 2 years and have only had three sex partners in my life and my current boyfriend was a virgin when we met and has never shown any strange symptoms. I have had my urine tested for stds and all have come up negative, I have these bumps on my vagina and I feel they look like vestibular papillae and I've also done the vinegar test and nothing turned white at all. Can you please confirm?


I agree with you. They appear to be squamous papilloma, which are very common in sexually developing women. They are usually assessed when you get a pap smear every 3 years. If you are at least 21 years old, then you can start getting those checks with your OBGYN, so you can make an appointment if you wish. Let me know if you have follow up.
