Not by a long shot. But before you start panicking, this might be the cause.
1. Vaginal issues
This is when an infection might re- occur causing pain during sex. Such infections include vaginal yeast infections, urinary tract infections or sexually transmitted diseases. You need to see a doc just to be sure fam.
2. Physical problems
Physical causes may be caused by conditions such as hormone problems; the drugs you are taking might cause lack of sexual desire, diabetes, and problems such as fibroids.
3. Psychological issues
This can be an emotional reason or anxiety that is causing this problem. This might be caused by work related stress, anxiety, relationship problems, depression, feelings of guilt, effects of past sexual trauma and concern about sexual performance.
4. Lack of proper foreplay
This causes insufficient lubrication of the vagina. This means that any foreign objects will find their way in difficult and might thence cause pain. So take your time to be both mentally and physically ready.
When all is said and done, you are the captain of your vagina .If the pain is persistent despite your efforts to correct the problem, visit your gynecologist and find out why.Good luck!
