Hi Maria,
This condition is called as dypaerunia that is pain full intercourse is mainly due to inadequate relaxation of vaginal muscle or vaginismus leading to minor trauma to vagina, this require as relaxation and proper forplay and use water soluble lubricants like k-y gel to minimize trauma. if itching is there it may be due to fungal infection consult gynecologist for evaluation and treatment.
Take care
