Sex hurts upon penetration


Q: Hi, I am a 22 year old female, I recently tried having sex with my boyfriend and it hurt upon penetration. I can feel a small bump inside my vagina which I believe to be my cervix, although I am not sure. I am 3 weeks late for my period also and I do not know why. It doesn't hurt to touch (every time) but hurt with penetration. I took a pregnancy test 2 days ago and I was not pregnant, but that could be wrong. I am never usually this late with my period, which is also a concern for me. I do not know what this could be and was wondering if you could guide me in the right direction to what could be the source of the problem. P.S The lump is soft.
