Doctor: Dyspareunia is genital pain experienced just before, during or after sexual intercourse. Although this condition has his torically been classified as a psychological sexual disorder, further investigation may be need to rule out any underlying structural cause of the pain. I would suggest that you visit your doctor/obstetrician for an internal examination and imaging studies. The treatment you can try at home are : speak to your partner about your concerns, make foreplay last longer, use a lubricating gel and perform relaxation/kegal exercises.
