You have not mentioned your age. As near menopause vagina becomes dry and sex gets painful. If you are below 40 years, then you should undergo ultrasound as there are various genital pathologies which cause painful sex as uterine and ovary problem. Last option is that sometimes it is psychological.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
