Watch for recurrence: Soak in warm water and if it is better then just watch but if it returns you should see your doctor. You probably had an abscess but the differential is wide so with out a picture and full exam you should be careful. Also look up Bartholin's gland cysts.

Shame on you: I hope something good but waiting that long can allow bad things to progress and cause permanent damages, please try to see a physician regularly and especially for acute problems. We want you around here 61 more years :).

Depends: Depends on what you are looking for some std like HIV may take as much as a year to present by blood test where others like gonorrhea may take a few days and then you will often have burning with urination or discharge. I would say 3 months is a good time to get checked but there is no exact time. Remember that if you have symptoms go and get check asap.
