I was having slight discomfort and a smidge of pain in my vaginal area. I thought it was odd and decided to check it out. I found two bumps, one on either side of the vaginal opening. They're hard, sort of movable, and a little sore. It's never happened before now, that I can recall. Should I be concerned?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The âbumpsâ that you feel on either side of the vaginal opening could suggest possibility of sebaceous cysts or Bartholin gland duct swelling. The soreness and discomfort suggest infection.
Get them examined by your gynecologist/healthcare provider to see what the exact cause is and start you on appropriate treatment.
