Thanks for posting your query.
This seems to be quite a normal problem.
First I would like to reassure you on this. Do not be disheartened.
Most of the times, it is a simple solution to this problem.
You need to have a happy life in all aspects, this includes your sexual life also.
Since any infection or abnormality has been ruled out after an examination, it is just fear that you are scared to have intercourse.I would like to advice you to talk to your husband regarding this and ask him to make you feel comfortable during intercourse.

Indulge in lots of foreplay.You can also use artificial lubricants like KY jelly for same.While having intercourse keep a pillow under your hips for better penetration and ask be relaxed before the act.
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.

Thanks for writing again.
You can buy the vaginismus kit. It will help in dilating the vaginal opening. Consulting a psychologist will also be helpful.
Hope my answer is helpful.
