Question: Small bump on Vestibule

 sophie4 - Thu Feb 04, 2010 10:57 am

I just had sex with this guy I had been seeing about six days ago. Then just recently a pimple size bump appeared on my vestibule (right before the entering of my vagina) on the left side. It's quite hard and hurts when I touch it, sit, and wipe after using the restroom. I don't know if this is something I should worry about or not.

User avatar Hello,
Most commonly these are cysts or infected follicles and they often resolve on their own, are not dangerous and only need attention if they bother you and don't go away. You can try using warm, moist compresses for relief. I don't think you need to worry.

Best wishes.
