Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Better to avoid any type of sex for at least 24 hours before gynecological examination.
Pain during intercourse(dyspareunia) can occur due to causes like pelvic infection, retroverted uterus, disparity between the genital organs etc.
It is not true that you should have intercourse before the examination in case of dyspareunia.
