    can hormone changes cause irritation of the skin on the vulva? every month around the time i ovulate i get a small "pimple" in the same spot. It never gets larger, isn't itchy or swollen...i've looked at several sites about genital warts and it dosn't look like anything i've seen. I do shave that area....could it just be irritation from hair as it grows back?  I don't have any symptoms of any STD or yeast infections...just this one small spot that recurrs on a pretty much monthly basis.    Any thoughts?

    You can read this article by Merely Me, a writer and community leader for this site, about, Bumps on the Vagina: How to know if it is serious? But it definitely sounds like it is linked to your menstrual but in what way it's hard to tell. She talks about warts, std's, cysts and gives other helpful information.

     

    You may need to ask your gynecologist, or family doctor, about it when you next have your pelvic exam or physical. They may have dealt with this often and be able to answer you quickly, or be able to take any tests, if needed to give you an answer.

    Shaving can cause skin irritation, pimples, even infections, or a sebaceous cyst from an ingrown hair, but not disappear and return every month, unless it coincides with when you shave. If it does that, you may have your answer.

    Good luck.
