Could these be yeast infection related? [PICS]

Posted , 7 users are following.

I had unprotected sex with someone I didn't know much about. I took plan B and it gave a yeast infection, then I noticed these bumps in mi vag opening and urethra. They don't look like anything I've seen online, please help!

    This looks very similar to another post I recently responded to. The photo looks the same to. Perhaps it is the same person? Like I said before those lumps are probably harmless. They look very much like Vestibular Papillomatosis - google that. This is a form of benign tumour - it is harmless and cannot be caught or spread by sexual intercourse. Because they are harmless there is no need to treat them. Men get something Siloam around the head of the penis - called pearly papules, again totally harmless. I think us women only see these things when we have got an infection, such as thrush, because that is the only time we inspect ourselves so closely, then we panic when we see them, especially if we have been up to something like unprotected sex with a new partner. They may have been there for some time but you just didn’t notice them before.

    Did you ever figure out what it was? 

    I have had the same thing and was told that it was genital warts. They ran out of the TCA treatment (which didn’t do anything) so then they prescribed me with imiquimod. My whole vuvla got very swollen and had pus pockets. Now it’s even worse than it was before. I’d like to know if they misdiagnosed me.

      Pus pockets certainly sounds like an STI to me, whereas anto’s bumps look like vestibular papillomastosis which is benign and harmless.

      Sorry, the pus pockets were due to the imiquimod. The doctor told me I had a “bad reaction” to it. I suggest that no one ever take the medication. 

      Later the pharmacist told me that the medication was only for the bigger, fleshy warts that would not go away. It should have never been applied to the small ones that look like anto’s picture. It also didn’t help that they told me to apply it everywhere on my vagina.

    It looks like an STD to me. You should go to the doctor to confirm if those bumps are genital warts or genital herpes. Genital warts are painless, but cause itching and discomfort. Meanwhile, genital herpes are painful and usually cause a thick, chunky white vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese.
