Hard Bumps on my genital

I have had a hard bump size of a pea near my clitorous. I noticed in the shower and I have had it for a week.
It really hurt whenever I touch it or my underwear touches it.
Is it a cyst or STD? I've had sex about over a year ago so I am not sure if that had anything to do with it but most likely not. Can anyone tell me what this is? I have 3 little bumps. I don't shave incase the razor touches the bumps. So my question is What Is It? How Do I Get Rid Of It? How Long Would It Last?
I am extremely curious!

Hi Aimee, I think you may find that there ingrowing hairs, sometimes you don't have to shave to get these, just get to your doctor, on if you can, and the head of them breaks, and if you can see inside them, you may see a black line, its a hair, so with a clean needle just pick them out and pluck them, in 24 hours all should be back to normal.
Good Luck

Hi and sorry Aimee, I missed the part about, that you do shave, well in that case they are ingrowers, its from shaving the wrong way, your hairs grow downwards, you should just shave that way, and in future all should be well.

Thank you but it doesn't look like an ingrowing hair because the little bumps look light pinky colour
