Sexual intercourse is not supposed to be painful unless it is caused due to some physical distress or psychological concern. In medical terms, this condition is called dyspareunia and is described as a recurrent vaginal pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. Every woman experiences pain during intercourse at some point in their lives which might occur due to lack of lubrication. It might also happen due to certain medications that affect sexual arousal. But that is not the case always as there may be underlying health conditions that lead to pain. You must consult a gynaecologist who might be able to help you diagnose the reason and administer treatment.
