Our expert says:
I would suggest that you have a check-up with your doctor or gynaecologist just to make sure there are no growths or infections. It is possible that you have vaginal thrush or some other inflammation causing the pain. Avoid vaginal sex until this has been treated. Fear of pain will make you tense and make matters worse! In the meantime, oral sex or mutual masturbation are ways to have sexual intimacy until the vaginal issue is resolved.
