Hi there, have a question for you all. My girlfriend of 7+ months is extremely worried--she discovered what she describes as a slightly raised red bump on her vagina---one of the lips if that makes sense? I don't remember the actual medical term from health class. Anyways, this red bump does not hurt, itch, burn, or bother her in any way. She just discovered it today. For background, we have been sexually active for about 5 months. I am the only person she has had sex with for at least 8 months. She has never noticed anything like this before. She is worried, however, (as am I) and is curious to find out what it is, but she's terrified to go to a doctor. Are there any ideas as to what this is?Thanks... Edit: PS, I've read other descriptions of red bumps on this forum, but they all seem to concern males, and my girlfriend isn't convinced.
The odd bump isn't uncommon. If it stays the same and it doesn't change or grow and it doesn't hurt, it probably is nothing.
Thanks for calming us down...apparently that's right where she has fun w/ herself so that could be a cause of it, maybe...just better to be safe than sorry.
