Can Bacterial Vaginosis cause bumps?
Question by Amber P: Can Bacterial Vaginosis cause bumps?
I have reoccuring issues with bacterial vaginosis. I have only been having sex with one man in the past 6 years. but we are not in a relationship and I know he’s had unprotected sex with others. When we were in a reltionship I had contracted HPV which gave me genital warts. thats was over 4 years ago. My body rid itself of the HPV. (After treating the HPV was unsuccessful, I was scheduled for laser surgery and the warts just started going away on their own). I have since been vaccinated for HPV. I recognize the symtoms of BV, as I said It something I get every few months or so. But I have found one singke bump in the vaginal opening. It itches. The warts, I recall, didn’t itch. Is it possible that the BV can cause a bump?

Yeah, I found this on the CDC website:
“Women with BV may have an abnormal vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor. Some women report a strong fish-like odor, especially after intercourse. Discharge, if present, is usually white or gray; it can be thin. Women with BV may also have burning during urination or itching around the outside of the vagina, or both. However, most women with BV report no signs or symptoms at all.”
It does mention itching, but not a bump.
