Okay this is embarrassing but I have so many questions. Okay so I have theses bumps on the top of my vagina, and when I did they said they were cyst and non cancerous I think, but I didn't get to finish the whole lesson(had to leave) but the thing that bothers me is that I never had sex ever, never had anyone else touch down there except me and my doctor (you know yearly check up and puberty and all that crap) So yeah do I have a disease, should I not have sex should I tell my doctor about it?

What do you mean by "lesson?" Did someone else look at these bumps?

A sex ed class isn't going to be able to tell you much about a possible condition of your vulva.

These bumps: how big are they? What do they look like? Where are they at on your vulva (your vagina is inside your body, so I assume you mean your vulva)? On the mons? The outer labia? The inner labia? Do they hurt at all?

Well the don't really hurt its like little to none that it hurts its never scorching pain. They aren't that big maybe as big as my pinky nail at the max (i have small fingers)and they're on the mons, they look like small bumps, I think they're called Ovarian cyst.

No: ovarian cysts, when they are present, are inside the body, in the ovaries.

If they are on your mons, chances are you're just looking at something like ingrown hairs or zits.

All the same, if you have never been sexually active before, you can rest assured they are not a sexually transmitted infection or disease. But if you're worried about them, you can see a doctor to let them take a look and tell you for certain what they are.
