Oh my God..I really need to calm down. Ok, I wasn't going to post on scarleteen cuz I kinda knew what answers I would get, but I HAD to. I'm sure you all know about my "bumps down below" and how I went to the gyno twice for them and how she said they were nothing and were no big deal. (for those who don't know: i got frequent pimple-like things on my vagina alot). Well, a few days ago I got one..well, at least, what I THOUGHT was one. Turns out..it was three of them. I am so scared right now. They're unlike the other bumps I used to get..they're very itchy, they won't pop, and all they bleed..oh, also, they are in a straight line about a centimeter away from each other. Ok, there is NO way possible that I can have genital herpes (I know this for a fact)..so I don't know what this could be. I've done alot of research on genital herpes, and I HATE to say it, but my bumps sound and look like it. Did the Herpes Fairy just come down and bless me with herpes? I am shaking so hard right now. My mom is going to try to make another appointment with the gyno tomorrow..but by then, I will have driven myself completely crazy. Help!

First thing, calm down. Our bodies do a lot of strange things. Infected hair folicles, blocked pores, zits, warts, moles, odd allergy-based rashes, you name it, but most of them are harmless. Until a doctor looks at it, you just don't know.
I know it's hard not to stress, but stress rarely helps anything and may make some conditions worse. Try to relax, and in 24 hours, you'll hopefully have an answer.
