hi,
sometimes because of narrow vagina, lack of lubrication, in case of infection etc you can have some pain and discomfort during intercourse,
so if you are not having symptoms like white discharge, associated smell, local lesions etc, then the possibility of infection is less,
you can try measures like wash genital area with luke warm water, avoid disinfectants, perfumed tissues, bubble bath etc, use some lubricant jelly during intercourse.
take care.
