hi i'm 15 and i'm no longer a Virgin. Last night i felt something near my vagina and my inner thigh and when i touched it i felt a hard ball. It does not hurt at all, i can touch and even squeeeze it and i feel no pain at all. I'm a Cheerleader and i don't know if this has to do anything with it or maybe the sex has something to do with this. I'm really worried and i'm scared to go to the doctors because i don't want my mom finding out i'm no longer a Virgin. Plese please help me.

i had that too at one point, but I honestly have no idea what it was. It went away, and my doctor has determined that I''m healthy & have no STDs or anything. I got mine after going to camp and being really active. Maybe it has something to do with that.

You have various glands in that area that can get blocked, infected and/or form a cyst. The Bartholin gland (two small exits next to your vaginal opening) are known to cause a round bump that can be felt under your labia. The other glands are the Skene's glands (exits next to your urethral opening (pee hole)).

These glands secretes fluids at various stages of your sexual response cycle. The purpose of these fluids are not yet understood but it is thought to be anti-bacterial and for lubrication.

If you have any doubts, speak to your doctor.
