To be clear: the bumps are inside your vagina? In other words, you can't see them externally, but only feel them with a finger when you put it into your vaginal opening?

Well, you've been sexually active for some time, and to my understanding have also had unprotected sex as well. So, if you have not started getting yearly sexual healthcare, including STI screenings, you really should schedule a screening now, especially while those bumps are present.

What those are, it's tough to say without more description than simply that there are bumps, but since you will have had possible STI risks, an infection would be the first thing you'd want to rule out.

In terms of the fever and feeling dizzy and vomiting, I'd say those are symptoms to discuss with your general doctor, so if they also can do an STI screening for you and a pelvic exam -- and most can -- it'd be ideal to get all that looked at. But chances are those symptoms are related to something else entirely, even just a flu virus.

It's hard to say, but I'd reckon they are probably two different things.

Regardless, even if you had NO symptoms, given you have been sexually active for some times, you need yearly STI screenings. Given that has been unprotected at least once, you need that even more. So, no matter what? You need to get a screening, and since you have bumps NOW a doctor could look at, doing it as soon as possible would be ideal.

Thing is Chelsey, your age doesn't make a difference. You've had unprotected sex, so you have been at risk for STIs. You need to go get checked out by a doctor. If you can't go to your regular doctor, you can check out the Planned Parenthood website to find a clinic near you.

If he had absolutely no sexual contact with anyone else before you, then there's certainly less risk, but it doesn't mean there's NO risk of STIs.

We're not saying that it's 100% for sure an STI, but it's a possibility. Either way, you do need to get these bumps checked out- we're not doctors, and we can't diagnose things (even if we were, you can't diagnose things like bumps without seeing them in person). We can't tell you if there's something to put on it because we don't know what it is, and only a doctor or gyn can tell ya.

Why can't you go to the doctor?
