Thanks for your query.
A cervical erosion or polyp on the cervix could be causing such pain.
However, that would be ruled out by a normal smear.
As endometriosis has been ruled out, you could be having pelvic congestion syndrome.
This is when the pelvis is more vascular than normal, and hence sex and periods are extremely painful.
Such pain often responds to oral contraceptives which regulate the hormonal axis.
Take care.
