Tiny white growth on vagina

I am very pregnant (40 weeks) and the other day while bathing I felt something on my vagina. So I get out of the tub, get in front of the mirror, spread my "stuff" apart and find a single tiny white dot/growth thing on the lip of my vagina. I have had a doctor appointment since and had her look at it, but she says she isnt sure what it is. She said since I am having an epidural for my delivery it will be easy to take it off while im already numb and send it to the lab to test it (if it doesnt go away before that). My doc said not to stress myself out over it, but I cant help it, I am so scared that something is wrong with me. My question is has this ever happened to anyone else and if so what did it turn out to be?

  • did she give you an STD test? it sounds like syphilis to be honest with you.
    go to webmd and look up syphilis to see if your growth is similar to what they have on there.

  • sounds like something I had while I was preg. The doctor said it was fine and due to hormonal changes. i hated it! mine hurt though. But after I had my son it was gone in about a week and I haven't had one since then

  • Well see this thing doesnt hurt or anything. I dont even know how long it has been there. I just happened to notice it the other day while washing down there. Even though my doctor said not to worry about it I just cant help but be freaked out by it.

    Oh puleeze! Syphilis causes big nasty festering SORES.  What OP describes sounds a LOT more like a skin tag, or even a vaginal wart. She said nothing about a festering open sore. I'm sure that if it were syphilis the OB would have said something!!

  • LOL, I agree, sounds like MrsMomT is smoking crack if she really believes you have syphilis. you most likely have a skin tag or a wart.
