Sores on Vagina

It happened this week. I started to notice pain when I was urinating but I thought it might have been a cut when I shaved myself. I took a look and found 3 red bumps. One of which looked like a pimple but I wasn’t sure. It was pretty much painless when I touched the two bumps but there was a third right on the skin where my vaginal opening is. It looked like a sore and it hurts horribly when disturbed. My discharge has been so excessive and come to a pale yellow color with no apparent order. I slept with two men recently both of which do not have herpes. One of them is definitely clean but the other one said he might have had chlamydia from a previous intercourse but he’s not sure since it happened awhile ago. Will this sore go away on its own? It doesn’t seem to be getting worst but I can’t tell if it’s improving. I’m really worried but I can’t see a doctor alone since I’m a minor

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

This is not something that you should wait to see if it goes away on their own. If you are having unprotected sex with more than one man, your exposure to some sort of sexually transmitted infection is high, even if they say they are "clean". Many men have no symptoms at all and you should never trust anyone who claims they have no STIs as many don't actually know.

If these bumps/sores are not from shaving (ingrown hairs) then you may have herpes or genital warts and your discharge may indicate chlamydia, gonorrhea or some other infection.

Even as a minor, you need to be checked. You don't have to tell a parent/guardian why you are going to an appointment but you do need to be seem Ask your doctor to respect your privacy but you may need medication. It's better to be honest and get an evaluation done, than to let this go and wait for it to get worse.
