This answer was rated:

ok, i''m 37 years old, married for 6 years, pregnant, took a mirror to shave b/c I cannot see around stomach.(almost 9 months) I have an appoint with the doc in 1 wk, cannot wait till then, There are dark purple spots & lumps under the skin on my labia. they do not hurt or itch , but they seem to be 2 more tiny ones appearing on the opposite labia, I cannot find anything that looks like this online, almost looks like ruptured blood vessels but not, & the small ones are completely under the skin, please help std ? I had a pap& complete blood work done at 7/8 weeks , nothing was noticed then. I''m freaking out , genital warts ? after all these years ? Since this is completely confidential I will send pic online if necessary.
I can understand and appreciate your concern.
From your description this problem does NOT sound like an STD.
It seems like possibly a case of varicose veins of the vulva.
This is a well known problem that occurs ESPECIALLY during the last trimester of pregnancy due to increased blood volume and increased abdominal pressure.
Like many other problems this will improve spontaneously with the delivery.
