Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
I feel that the bump you had over your pubic region was folliculitis and as there was a pimple which came out of it which was out in nature, confirms the diagnosis. It heals with fibrosis and hence you were able to feel a hard area at the time of its healing. This shall resolve on its own in few weeks , so no need to worry in this regard.
Secondly your concern about dryness in the labial region during exercise is normal as bartholin gland secretions are poured in the vestibular area inside the introitus which are responsible for moisture. Again frictional injury with tighter undergarments during exercise can cause sores and bleeding locally. So avoid tighter undergarments during the exercise.
Thirdly, considering that your menses have been regular but you are sure that you don't ovulate needs to be investigated with a hormonal profile to check for androgenic status and PCOS with an ultrasound pelvis which are commonly associated with anovulation in reproductive age group. You r concern about fibroids , cysts and vulval cancer is understood but there is no reason to suspect that but still you may undergo a ultrasound pelvis to look for any such accidental findings.
I believe stress has been a part of you and hence hormonal imbalances during the cycle are playing their effects over you. So you need to relax and get yourself a routine gynaecological examination and you surely don;t have to be pregnant to meet one.
I hope i have answered your queries,
Wishing you good health,
