Normal warts or Genital warts?

NORMAL Pap smear (had it done 3 months ago)
Negative STD check (had it done 2 months ago)
however i noticed little bumps outside the vagina area (between vagina and anus). I checked with my dermatoligist and she was able to shave them off. I heard if its something you can shave off, it should be fine, but havent received biopsy yet so getting very worried.  She said they look like warts but to be sure she wanted to do a biopsy just in case.
They're flesh colored, they're about 3 small ones close together, they have not spread-its about a month since i noticed them appear but didnt get them treated til 5 days ago.
Within that month, I've had sexual intercourse and doesnt seem to have spread to my partner (ive been in a monogamous relationship for 4 months).

Should i still be able to engage in sex?

Hi

I would suggest that you abstain from any sexual activity until this has been properly assessed. Skin colored bumps usually have warts, molluscum, and skin tags as differentials. Warts may present in various forms. They may appear as tiny filiform warts or they may be flat common warts. Were the samples taken for a histopath reading? It is necessary to know the results of the biopsy. At this point, we may think of warts as a likely diagnosis since it is relatively common. If a significant sexual history is present ,then warts may be likely.

Hi Dr Vanessa,
Thank you for your response.
I'm 23 and have not considered myself sexually active until recently. I've had sex before with about 9 partners but was not in a committed relationship and had very long intervals between partners. I've been in a relaitonship for about 4 months now and it was only til about a couple of weeks ago (4-6 weeks) that I noticed the bumps. They are right below my right labia, they are not cauliflower have a little distance from them but still are close together (3- 2 bigger ones and a small one, they TOGETHER can be covered by a small round bandaid).

because the biposy resuklts have not been ready for the past 4-5 days, can u pls give me more advise if this is a DEFINITE case of genital warts or a possibility of a skin tag
