Customer Question

I have an appointment scheduled on Saturday and while I know I should wait I'm really nervous and restless. I ended a very serious relationship a few months ago and now I'm afraid I may have an STD from that relationship. I woke up Tuesday morning and there was this painless cluster of bumps between my vagina and buttocks area. I'm really freaking out because I don't know what this is

I had not heard back whether your question has been answered.

There are many different reasons for bumps to appear between the vagina and the buttocks. However, from the perspective of a potential STD, the only real concern would be genital warts. It wold be impossible to say wheether they are genital warts solely by the description of a cluster of bumps. If a good close-up picture could be obtained and attached, then I can comment upon the appearance on the picture. I also realize that this is a sensitive area to photograph and attach, so that is completely up to you. Ultimately, though, the best method for diagnosis would be examination that you have scheduled.

If you would like for me to review a picture to offer some comment prior to then, I would be glad to do so.
