I was shaving and noticed white bumps on the inside of my Vaginal lips. I am a 16 year old virgin who has only had one boyfriend and we barely kissed (though he is the exact opposite of a virgin). I am really scared as to what these bumps may be. I don't itch or have painful urination, but lately I have had more discharge than usual. Are these bumps normal? I am so embarrassed and don't want to talk to my mom. But I am scared to even go to a clinic by myself behind her back. Though I am a virgin I'm worried it could be an STD somehow. Please help :'(
Dont worry it might.be just an infection. You should go to the doctors.. and maybe if it is some std related they dont just come through sex also by using public restrooms. Buut you should check with the doc been 16 and having this is not normal
I was reading a lot of sites and girls even younger than me had them too and said it was normal. But STDs usually itch right? I don't itch what so ever or burn or anything. And I thought the public bathrooms was a myth?
These are completely normal, I believe they are just glands. every girl is different maybe some are more visible than others but I have them and I definately dont have an infection! Im alot older than you and I dont think you have anything to worry about unless they are itching.. if you are worried though, you should go to doctor they willl tell you its normal.
