This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

you could have a urinary tract infection.

you could have an infected bartholins gland

you need to see a gyn doctor and get a urinalysis and urine culture to check for bacterial urine infections

you need a gyn exam

you may need to go on antibiotics for a bartholins gland infection.

do you have a gyn doctor?

Do i book in for a smear test then? Surely i wouldnt have a lump like that with a uti

you could have an infected bartholins gland.

see your GP first

your GP can test your urine and give you a course of antibiotics.

you can also try warm compresses on the area

they should also test you for STD as well

hopefully that will help both the urine infection and the infected bartholins gland.
