Irritation: Tough to say without an exam and history. Sometimes, if your vagina is not properly lubricated form your natural secretions, it can get irritated and inflamed with friction during the act of sex. At times, you may need to lubricate and that could be the cure to your issues. But get an exam to be safe and properly diagnosed to be sure. Good luck.
