I have this bump near my vagina, when I went to wipe I noticed a drop of blood. So I used a mirror to see what it was and the bump looks open now and is was bleeding. Before it was just a bright red bump that didn't really hurt, just felt irritated and only had slight pain when I touched it. I have been getting bumps for a while now and I'm not sure what it is, I'm scared. I did get tested and showed he doctor and he said it looks like an ingrown. But I do get them when I don't shave. I also get some in my pubic area, they turn dark like they have a black middle, there's usually no pain just feel irritated. I do sometimes feel the hair being tugged by my underwear.. I'm hoping it's not an STD. I've been tested for STDS before and it came back negative but not sure if they tested for herpes.

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You again need a STD screening. may be it was negative previously,but you need a repeat screening.This bleeding bumps can be due to STDs of different types.So,meet your doctor for an opinion and necessary investigations.
