See a gynecologist: You need to be examined to have this explained appropriately. Painful intercourse may be due to irritation of the vaginal lining, the cervix, the position of the uterus and occasionally the position taken while having sex, so that the penis is hitting a sensitive area. Your lack of sensitivity may be related in part to fear of pain, but other things may be going on. See a gyn and/or sex therapist.

Depends: Have you been tested to see that infection has cleared up? Vaginal infections can cause tissue dryness, and irritation. In addition the muscles in the pelvis can spasm to splint against an irritant. This spasm can add to pain with intercourse. See a gyn or urogynecologist for further assessment
