Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Well, if you had unprotected sex with a person not well known and now have swollen, red and itchy clitoris with pain during urination, then you need to rule out UTI and STI or STD.

Please get a complete STD panel and also a urine examination. Please consult your gynecologist too. Hope this helps. Take care!
