I shaved my mons pubis earlier today & now I have a really painful bump down there. I used to always get boils cause my skin was so sensitive.

Careful: Make sure you are using a quality razor and moisturizing shaving gel. Shaving always causes small skin openings that can become infected or the hair can become ingrown as it grows back. Moisturize everyday with good eczema cream and use light dose 1% hydrocortisone if irritated. Moist heat for now and some neosporin. See MD if worsens - don't PICK.

I have this EXTREMELY painful bump on my mons pubis, it's the color of my skin, I and it started hurting when touched yesterday

Possible STI: Painful bumps on the genitals most likely mean a sexually transmitted infection. It could be herpes, genital warts, or chancroid/bacterial infection. OTC analgesic, sitz bath might help, but exact treatment depends on causes of genital sores. Your doctor might prescribe antibiotics, topical steroids, or antivirals. ...Read more

There is a bump on my mons pubis and has happened before. It is slightly darker than my skin and hurts with a little poke or slight rub. What should I?

Time to go...: A small recurrent tender spot might be an oil gland that's starting to get infected, or even the beginnings of something worse.
Probably the safest thing is to consult a dermatology practitioner.
Its also generally safe to kill off local skin cells etc by freezing...they sell kits to do this over the counter.
Or you could just watch and wait. And see your PCP if it continues. ...Read more

I have a marble sized lump in my left mons pubis, it hurts when I touch it only, with no white head. I'm 18 and not sexually active.?

Hard to be sure: This may just represent an inflammation at the base of a hair follicle, or a nearby lymph node. Moist heat in the form of a warm compress may improve blood flow enough that your body self heals, but if it continues to be a problem I would have it checked. ...Read more

My vagina is very skinny and the mons pubis doesn't have a buff, what is the cause of that?

My vagina is very skinny and the mons pubis doesn't have a buff, what is the cause of that?

Buff?: I am sorry, but I don't understand the question. I would suggest that there is great variety in the outward appearance of anatomy and that what you are concerned about is likely just how you are "made"; however, without knowing what a "buff" is I can't say for sure. ...Read more

Could exercising with a waist trainer cause a swollen mons pubis? And if so how can it be reduced or treated?

The big squeeze...: If swelling began after using the trainer, and wasn't there before using the trainer, then there is a high probability that the restricting effect of the trainer is the culprit. Depending on what tissue was strained, it could take days to weeks for resolution, providing no further irritation occurs. ...Read more

Shaving injury: What you are describing sounds like a shaving injury. A herpes lesion usually does not bleed. If you felt yourself cutting the skin with the razor then this is the most likely explanation. If you are concerned see and Obgyn for an examination ...Read more
