Yes: Women vary, and many women are like this. The bumps are probably the normal sebaceous glands. As you approach life as an adult, i'm glad you're getting to know your body. Your office visits are a great time to talk about stuff with your personal physician.

I have had several patients who complained that it hurt to run or exercise. A labial reduction was a very welcome and cosmetic solution.
