One side of my clitoris is swollen and sore following having sex with my boyfriend. It does not hurt when I go to the bathroom but it is a little bit itchy. Do you know what this could be?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for your symptoms. However, the symptoms that you describe are suggestive of infection. A vaginal swab/smear test along with urine analysis will help to identify the causative agent. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Maintain good diet. Avoid having unprotected intercourse.
Take care.
