I'm 19 and found a painful red lump directly next to my clitoris on labia minora. Partner and I just tested negative for STDs. Could this be serious?

Tests, tests, tests: It depends just exactly what was tested for. You may have an inflamed Bartholin's cyst from your brief description. Why don't you visit your doc and discuss that with him/her and get it dealt with, whatever it is. An excellent web site for some homework on your part before you go is www. Mayoclinic. Com or www. Johnshopkins. Com.
Good luck ...Read more

I have a large, very painful infected lump by the frenulum and labia minora on the left side of clitorus. It ruptured and pus with stones came out.

Is it improving?: There are normal glands there, adjacent to the clitoris. Any skin gland can become infected (like a large pimple). As long as the cyst has drained and is resolving, you may not need any further treatment. If it is swollen, red, or continuing to be tender, then you may need to see a Gyn doc to evaluate the area and s/he may consider antibiotics. ...Read more

Hi I noticed a small bump on my left labia minora near my clitoris and urethra yesterday and I'm in panic mode. I feel like it's never a good thing to?

You are very right - panic is never a good option for these things. Even worry is not useful. Find out what it is and if you need to do anything about it. Hope it's nothing difficult! ...Read more

Skin around my clitoris swells up to the size of my labia minora (like I have 3 labia minora)for days after sexual activity. Is this normal?

Skin around my clitoris swells up to the size of my labia minora (like I have 3 labia minora)for days after sexual activity. Is this normal?

Normal: The skin around the clitoris (also called hood) becomes engorged (or filled with blood) during arousal. The inner labia do as well. Typically, after orgasm, the swollen tissues go back to their normal size. But, this can take awhile for some women. Most likely, this is completely normal. Ask your gynecologist during your next annual. ...Read more
