Pimple or STD?


Q: I found a bump on the outer part of my vagina about 5 days ago and popped it (I know, bad) because I was scared it could be an STD. It popped like a normal pimple except it bled quite a bit. It was enflamed for a couple days but seems to almost have disappeared now. My question is: is there any STD that would pop and then disappear that quickly? I have no reason to think I have an STD, but I just need some peace of mind. Thanks!

Symptoms:  bump on vagina.
