Hi,
Thanks for the query.
The possible causes are :
- Friction leading to abrasions etc.
- Post coital tear
- Vaginal infection etc.
As the pain is still persisting, better to consult gynecologist once and get examined.
If there are any signs of infection, you may need one course of antibiotics.
If there is any post coital tear, that may need repair.
Small abrasions can heal by their own.
By examination the exact cause can be identified and treated.
Using lubricants during intercourse can decrease the friction.
Take care.
