Our expert says:
Kuki, if you are experiencing pain and burning after sex only, then it sounds like you are not aroused and the lack of lubrication would irritate and cause small abrasions on the lining of the vagina. If the discomfort is there all the time, then it could be that you have an infection (e.g. thrush or something else) and it requires medical attention.
As for why you don't like sex, the reasons for this would need to be understood so that you could possibly address these. Furthermore, it is common for one partner to have a lower libido/desire than the other and this difference needs to be managed in the relationship - this may mean that at times you are sexual when you aren't particularly desiring it, but are happy to be sexual. At other times, he would give you the space not to be sexual and possibly just be close. These sorts of things can be difficult to discuss and negotiate, but it can be possible to improve the current situation.
