  • Fleshy Bump

    Ok-I know this isnt really related to sex but I didn't know where to post it.
    I recently noticed that I have what I think may be a skin tag in my vaginal area. It's at the bottom of my labia, near my perium. It doesn't itch, hurt or anything like that. I'm just wondering if it's possible that I would have warts or something. I go for my yearly pap test, I've never had sex with anyone besides my BF of 8 years. and it's not very likely that he's cheating on me either. Does anyone else have anything like this? I want to wait to see if this progresses any before I make an appointment with my GP. My BF tells me he thinks it has always been there, he doesn't think it looks like a wart, just a skin tag if its anything.
    FYI-I do shave down there and perhaps it might be a result of a long-term shaving irritation???

  • It's possible, i had the same thing happen in that area and went to the doc a couple weeks ago and was positive for low risk hpv. You or you boyfriend could have been a carrier it can lay dormant for years.
    It's also possible to be many other things though, the doctor should be able to tell right away if it's warts or not.

    • Really??? It's likely that either of us could've had the HPV virus and it's been dormant for 8+ years??? Wow!

        • It sounds like Hpv. But, a doc could tell you for sure. I would make an app asap. No need waiting. Your doc needs to see it right away.

          • It's Okay. . .If it's what I'm talking about.

            Is it kinda like a hard lump dat looks like a wart? if that's what it is and it's inbetween ur vagina lips and peehole it's not warts. . .I had that before. . .I don't know what it's caused by but it usually goes away after about a week. You just need to wash it very hard. . .=] so I hope that helps.

            • I also think it sounds like HPV. I had warts and that's what they looked like to me.

                Alison H. I agree with the question you raised! Does tent sex count!? The only time I had sex outside was on a camping trip (technically inside) a tent....

                I do — but I'm so prone to UTIs (thanks, menopause!) that I'm afraid not to. I USED to skip underwear years ago, but it's been a LONG time.
