I am 17 years old, soon to be 18 in a couple of weeks. I have only had one sex partner, his name is Alexander, and Alexander has only had sex with one other person besides myself. When he & the other girl had sex, they used a condom. Also, every time Alexander & I had sex, we used a condom. I know condoms don't completely protect you for STD's or other diseases but I thought it might be important for you to know.
So I think it was about 6 months ago, I found small raised bump, not completely on my vagina, but a little bit to the left of the area between my vagina and anus. At first, I thought it was just an ingrown hair from shaving around that area so I kinda forgot about it, thinking that it would just go away. A couple days ago, I was in a bathing suit and looked down & saw it but now there are three small bumps sort of in a line. They are not red but a little pink and not painful. I also how have another bump on the opposite side of that area. I looked up genital warts online and saw all then pictures and some of them look like mine. I don't want to tell my mom so I would have to make a doctor's appoiment and go by myself. I'm scared because I feel alone & that I can't tell anyone about it because it's pretty embarrassing and awkward to talk about. I told Alexander about it and he said he doesn't have any bumps or anything on his genitals so I don't see how I could have genital warts or anything like that. Do you think I should go to the doctor's?
