Read On How Your Doctors Online Diagnosed Charlotte With Vestibular Papillomatosis!

I am Charlotte, and I recently developed round bumps on my vaginal area. I never knew that a condition known as vestibular papillomatosis existed. Since I had a new partner with whom I had recently become sexually active. My biggest fear was that I had caught an STD. 

I developed small, shiny, skin-coloured growths on my vulva!

I didn’t have any other symptoms like pain, itching or abnormal vaginal discharge but I was losing my sleep. Constantly living in fear, I was on the verge of breaking down. I broke up with my partner blaming him for bumps, refusing to listen to him at all. 

I signed up on Your Doctors Online platform to seek guidance!

Despair engulfed me, but I finally managed to regain enough senses to make an appointment. Unfortunately, I could not get an appointment with my Ob/gyne. Therefore, I started searching for online doctors. Finally, I came across Your Doctors Online, a platform that advocates for women’s health. After thorough research, I was impressed by their reviews. So, I signed up immediately.

Do You Have Questions About Your Current Symptoms? Chat With a Doctor Online

The online doctor diagnosed me with vestibular papillomatosis!

I connected with Dr Farrukh, who asked me several questions about my current symptoms. She asked me the following questions:

  • When did I first notice the bumps?
  • Do I have any pain?
  • Do I have any symptoms like vaginal discharge, itching or a rash?

She also took my detailed sexual history. Then, she diagnosed me with vestibular papillomatosis after asking about my symptoms and looking at my provided image. I was informed that the condition is called as vestibular papillomatosis. It was a harmless condition. I immediately felt like I could breathe again. After that, I asked her questions regarding the condition, and she answered them very patiently. 

I was relieved to find out that vestibular papillomatosis was harmless!

Furthermore, Dr Farrukh explained that the condition is not a disease. It is in fact a variant of the normal anatomy of the vulva. Therefore, it is not an STD or any infection. However, I was also informed that it can be mistaken for warts. That is why, it is wise to get a clinical exam for reassurance.

I am glad that I signed up for Your Doctors Online. Getting a diagnosis within minutes was such a huge relief. The platform is very reliable where board-certified doctors can cater to your needs.
