Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
The skin tag like things may well be just that, small skin tags.
They might also be warts or hymen remnants. Your doctor could most likely be able to identify them by looking at them. If unsure, they could easily be snipped of using a little local anesthesia and examined microscopically.
Most likely they are skin tags or nothing serious. They don't really sound like warts, but I'd have to see them to know.
I would probably ask about them the next time you're in for an exam.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are soft and when I move them they easily move as if a small bit of skin.they seem to have been there a while and are only visible when I stretch the opening of my vagina.
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.
Yes. They sound like skin tags. They may have been there for some time, and you just noticed them now.

Sorry if I could clarify one more thing.i have being seeing someone over a year now but have always been careful except twice last August and April.if it was an std I probably would have passed it to my partner by now . Would this be correct?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.
Not necessarily. The only std that it might be is genital warts. Some people get warts and some don't. It's somehow related to immunity.
But as I said, it doesn't sound like warts.
