Answer
That actually sounds like it could be related to herpes simplex type 2 or gentian herpes because it follows a "pattern." If you've never been tested before, I would recommend checking with your primary care provider or OBGYN specialist to see if it's related to your hormones or an STI. If it is herpes then you can be placed on an anti-viral medication to control the outbreak. Please don't try to squeeze the lesion from now on because it opens a route to infection.

Best of luck,
