What causes severe pain at the opening of vagina?

Hi how are you I am a 22 year old female and I m starting to become concerned about symptoms I m experiencing in my genital area it started about just over s month ago roughly I was starting to experience pain during intercourse and afterward had a burning sensation and also while I urinated which was quite uncomfortable. This was happening for 2wks approx. Then the symptoms were starting to lesson. I went on holidays for two weeks thinking I d be better on return as I had no intercourse and thought this would help but on return I and now I am experiencing pain still mainly on entering. I m with my boyfriend a year now. I also found it hard to insert a tampon last week which I never experienced problems with before. Can you help give me some idea what it may be??

Hi
Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to less lubrication or not properly broken hymen or vaginismus. Avoid tampons and used pads while having periods. Using water based lubricants like K Y jelly is also good. Have enough foreplay to get enough natural lubrication and relaxation of vaginal opening. If still you have his then better to get it examined by a gynecologist. If everything is fine then it can be vaginismus which psycological and in such case you can get a counselling by sex therapist or psycologist.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
