Brief Answer:
It is called vaginismus, treated easily.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
This condition is called - vaginismus.
It can be easily treated.
SO do not worry.
First of all, please consult a gynecologist.
That diagnosis needs to be confirmed.
Due to psychological fear, the woman tightens the muscles around the vagina, thus making penetration impossible.
Treatment involves sexual counselling, and gentle teaching of techniques to dilate the vagina, by using a finger, tampon or vaginal dilators.
Gradually intercourse becomes possible.
Just relax, it is a fairly common disorder, and can be treated once you consult a professional for it.
All the best
