I have 1 bump on my vagina. It's is painless. I tried to pop it and it bleed a little bit. Could this be herpes?

Stay updated on paps!

Living with Disease: I do not see how the two are acquainted. 95% of those with herpes type one will have their infection somewhere close to their mouth or lips, not their anus. Herpes in the anus is usually caused by herpes two. And, herpes is a cluster of blister not a tear or something bleeding in the rectum. Blood from the rectum is usually a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure.

What do you mean?: The herpes sores should not bleed themselves (but could if you pick at them once they have crusted over). Outbreaks tend to occur when your body is stressed or sick. Many women will experience herpes outbreaks during their periods but it can come at anytime during your cycle. If you frequently have outbreaks during your cycle you may be a candidate for supression therapy and should talk to your md.
