    I cant tell in this picture but they are definitely either, vestibular papillomatosis or just fordyce spots. Both of which are normal and cause no harm... Sometimes these will get irritated and stand out more temporarily, and sometimes they grow, which is typical but this is usually when people will notice them for the first time and freak out. But completely normal, try looking them up on google!

      Unless you are refering to your hymen? Which looks normal and much healthier than id expect to see in someone with three children. lol

      hmm, with the better imagine I am thinking that if its anything, they would be bartholin gland cysts. swelling or infections increase chances of getting these, as your gland ducts might get blocked... Do they feel fluid filled at all? These are usually painless but may be a little tender. They Usually go unnoticed unless they get big. Just like any benign cycst, they are not really a threat to health but you should still see a doctor. Definitely doesnt resemble hpv or any other sti to me.

      the only issue ive found is most of them actually have a lot of sugar which i need to avoid.. maybe the supplements would work better? ive cut all juices and soda out of my diet i only drink water with my complicated uti issues
