Noticed a few small flesh colored bumps on outside of vagina. Just recently started spotting and ended my period a week ago. Nothing hurts.

Needs evaluation: New onset skin lesions on the vulva (area outside of vagina), can be normal skin tags, but very often they are condyloma. They usually present either as a flat lesion that is raised or as a lesion that looks like a cross between an elephant ear and cauliflower.

Irregular periods: I suspect hormonal problems causing this since you are 18 years old. Infection could be another cause. Trauma to the cervix also can cause if you are sexually active.

Why am I spotting a week after my period ended. Had sex when my peroid was done. Spotting been going on for a week now, not sure if my explanon?

Mostly benign: If you have a Nexplanon, which is a progestin only device, it is not unusual to have irregular bleeding such as you described. This is because you did not actually have a period but rather, random bleeding. Of course, if you are sexually active you should always rule out pregnancy first if you are having abnormal bleeding although less likely to be the cause. ...Read more
