I have not had sex in over 6 months. I have never shown signs for herpes or any STI. I used my sex toy 2 days ago for the first time in a while and used it for a while. I also just got off of my period.

I noticed this small thing today. It's small. It only happens in that one spot. It doesn't feel like a pimple but it feels like fluid is in it. Doesn't hurt. It's on the side inner lips if that helps.

3 photos are in my profile.

Anyone know what this is or have anything like it?

I can't see the pics, which they must have removed if they showed your genitals. We don't allow genital pics on the site.

A fluid filled spot - is it hard? Soft? Does it look like a blister or more like a pimple? It could just be blocked oil gland - much like a pimple. There are oil glands all over the labia, and they can get clogged. It's called an epidermal cysts. If they aren't infected, they are white or yellow and usually less than 1/2 inch (about 1 centimeter) in diameter.

If it's near a hair follicle, those can also get clogged.

You may have just irritated it with the sex toy use for a long time, so as long as it doesn't blister, see how it does for a couple of days. If it doesn't go away by Friday morning, or if it shows signs of infection - it grows, gets warm to the touch or the skin around it gets very red - get into to see your doctor.

I uplaoded a photo. Can you see it?
Please do not upload photos of your genitals.  It's not allowed, regardless of the reason for doing so.
I apologize. I cropped it so you can only see what i was talking about in my post and part of my finger.
If you want to post a pic, put it on imgur, and link it here.

We can not diagnose you, though. Only a doctor who examines it, and perhaps does testing, can diagnose you. Lumps can be from a lot of different things, and many can look similar, especially in pics.
It's hard to the touch
That doesn't sound like herpes. A hard lump, or spot, sounds more like it's under the skin, and herpes is on the skin. I can't tell you for sure what it is, but it sounds like a clogged oil gland, which is very common.

If it's not any better by tomorrow, give your doctor a call. Let us know what happens.
