If after sex...: If it happens after sex, then too hard, too long, too dry, too rough, vagina too small, penis too big, not enough foreplay, infections, trauma, etc. If the problem does not resolve, you need to get examined by your doctor, don't be shy...Go! in the future, be gentle, use lube if needed (astroglide or pjur), go slow, if it hurts, stop and cuddle and try again later.

Seek evaluation: Without knowing more, this is difficult to assess. By itself it may not be anything, it could however be an early yeast infection ( typically an odor, drainage and itchy) or an obstructed Bartholin's cyst ( unilateral), vaginosis ( discomfort, redness), simple overgrowth, hernia, etc. Treatment will depend on identify g the cause.
