Hello,
There can be many causes for painful intercourse
1.. Dryness of vagina caused by insufficient lack of foreplay and not using any lubricant during sex
2.. Vaginal infections like yeast,bacterial etc may also result in pain during intercourse although there could be other symptoms like burning during urination or vaginal discharges.
Consult your Gynecologist for the exact cause and rectification of your problem
Thanks
