15, used no protection with 3 people...

User Profile
I'm 15 and about 11 months ago I got an IUD. Since then I have had sex with four people. Three of which I used no protection. I noticed yesterday that on the left wall of my vagina that there are a few very small bumps. Since they are in my vagina I cannot see if they are colored or any other ways to describe them. They do not hurt, but it is very alarming. I have also noticed that lately instead of being able to use two fingers to masturbate I can only use one because two is extremely uncomfortable. This wasn't a problem even before I lost my virginity. Are the two connected and more importantly what are these bumps?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having intercourse stretches the vaginal opening and this could be the reason that you are able to insert 2 fingers inside vagina without discomfort. Regular intercourse can also make vaginal walls/muscles laxed. It is difficult to comment on the cause for the bumps inside vagina that you describe without examining them. Do not ignore your symptoms. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist. Avoid any self manipulation. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation. Keep area clean and dry. If infective cause is detected, get your partner (partners) also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid intercourse while being on treatment course.
Take care.
