Thanks for posting your query.
Severe pain during intercourse can happen due to narrow Vaginal Orifice -
Hymen which has very narrow opening or Dyspareunea (Pain while having intercourse).

A narrow vaginal opening can come in way of insertion.
Some females have a very narrow opening in the Hymen (Membrane covering the Vaginal orifice). In such situations, there will be difficulty in penetration.
Some females experience extreme pain before and during attempted insertion and this can some times preclude sexual intercourse.

You can try few of the following.
1. Try using your fingers and see if there is any obstruction. If you can successfully insert two fingers, this will be enough to penetrate.
2. Use lots of lubrication/vaselene.
3. A good amount of fore play along with using lubricant like K.Y.jelly may help you.
If the problem still persists, get your self evaluated at your gynecologist.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
