Pain: tough to say, could be simple muscle contusion depending on the possible roughness of the sex, or body positions (you on bottom), etc. or it could be referred pain form pelvic structures if bruised during sex, or could be an infection, etc. If it doe not improve, then see the Dr. Best wishes.
