Vaginal Pain That Occurs Only During Foreplay

Patient : I am a 20 year old female. Whenever I become aroused during foreplay I begin to feel a sharp, knifelike pain deep inside my vagina. The pain stops if foreplay is discontinued or if I am penetrated, but it lasts for as long as the foreplay every time. Even if foreplay is restricted to my upper body and there is no contact with my genital region, the pain occurs. I've been experiencing this pain for some months, and I'm wondering what it could be: I haven't been able to find anything on the internet about pain that occurs only during foreplay.
