Please help

There's a bump on my labia. I don't know which part but it's a bump that comes around periods and then usually it goes away. A while ago I got this pimple/whitehead or so it seemed around/on top of the bump and I popped i.After some bleeding it scanned amd stayed shut. I woke up this morning and had started my period then later today I went to the bathroom and noticed the scar/scab bleeding and passing and now it's sore. I have had sex only with virgins. I'm young and really don't want to talk to my parents or go see the gynecologist about this. Does anybody have any idea what it may be or what I should do?

Could be herpes but it might just be that your pimple got infected try rubbing alcohol and then putting neosporin on it if you don't feel comfortable with alcohol down your sensitive area just do the neasporin

If you are sexually active, it is best that you start seeing a gynecologist. I know it may seem scary and its an uncomfortable topic to discuss with parents but its something that is going to be very beneficial to your health. Even though your partners are saying they are virgins, it is best to get tested for any STDs or STIs just to be safe. Your gynecologist will not tell your parents that you have been tested or have been sexually active.

As for the bump, im no professional so I can't tell you that it is herpes for certain, but I would definitely just get tested to be safe. There is no harm in getting tested. Its also likely that it is just irritation. I would advise you to keep monitoring it but stop messing with it. If there is another pimple, please do not pop it as this only makes the situation worse.

Good luck to you!

I know for a fact that they were virgins. I'm just scared and I don't think I have herpes there's no way but i was scared of a cyst or something like that. I really don't want to see a gynecologist. I'm really insecure about my area

Being insecure about a very personal area like this is completely normal. I am still going to advise you to see a gynecologist about this because if it is a cyst, you are going to need it to be treated. It seems scary to visit the gynecologist but once you actually do it, you will hopefully realize that these people are professionals and are only looking at this area so that they can make sure your feminine health is great.

But, if seeing a gynecologist is not an option then you need to just keep the area clean and dry. Try not to touch it too often.

Does it get worse or sore after sex/excercise? If so, it could just be irritation.  But if the bump does not go away soon, gets worse, or very painful you need to see a doctor.

I wouldn't worry too much about it in the meantime. I hope I helped!

If your having sex with multiple people unprotected and their all virgins you can still get infected when you have sex with a person their stuff like germs and such on stay in your vagina then when you go to have sex with the next person you get his stuff in you too now you have multiple people's junk in you make sure your always having sex with a condom to avoid all that stuff hopefully it's nothing bad like STD's tell your mom your not feeling good and need to go to the doctor make up anything but make sure she's not in the room when you see your doctor the will be discrete or have someone take you to planned parent hood if there's a facility where you live they do the test
