please can you assist. i have a lump about 3cm below the clitoris on the side wall of my vigina. its a bit swollen and sensative to the touch. when feeling it is its round and feels like a gland. there is no smell or discharge and about a month ago i was on an anit- biotic for a bladder infection. the lump occured just after intercourse with my husband. could this be of concern, if so can i just go to my regular GP for advise or is it a need for concern and a check up?

It may be a Bartholin's cyst. You can go to your GP to check. He/she can refer you if necessary.
