Hello. A few minutes ago during foreplay, my boyfriend felt a small bump on the vaginal wall. He said it's a little smaller than the size of a pea. It's also hard. He thinks it could be a vain. I'm not sure what it could be. I'm also wondering if it's strange that parts of my vaginal wall have this numb feeling?
Thanks for your time.

Veins are usually soft, being hollow fluid-filled cavities...
...a few possibilities that come to mind as possible causes of strange lumps are skin tags, scar tissue, cysts, hpv, and cancerous tumor. The first three are fairly harmless, the first four are fairly common, and there may be hundreds of other reasons that such a thing could happen as well.
I have no idea about the normality of numbness, nor any insight on the nature of your bump, so I'll leave further responses in other people's capable hands...

Sparing the first inch or so of the vagina and the g-spot, most of it is not expecially rich with nerve endings. So, if by "numb" you mean you just kind of don't feel anything much, that's normal. If, on the other hand, you mean the sort of numb you get with a leg that fell asleep -- pind and needles, or a sort of tingling, you kn ow what I mean, that's something to ask your GYN about.
And you should check in about the lump, too, esecially if you aren't good about having your basic annual exams on time. If you are, unless it changes (gets way bigger, pussy, starts to hurt ot open up on any way), you can just ask whenever your next appointment is: more often than not, something like that is just a benign vulvar cycst that's fine left alone and nothing to sweat. But if you're really worried, you can also go in now and check it out.

The interior of the vagina also doesn't carry as much sensation as the exterior: the labia, clitoris and perineum have a great deal more nerves than the vaginal cavity. That said, actual numbness and mysterious lumps definitely sound outside the norm. Are you up-to-date on your pap smears and yearly physicals?
