See a gynecologist: You must be examined and thoroughly evaluated to have this diagnosed and managed appropriately. Go soon and feel better.

I agree, a gynecologist may be able to determine if there is an anatomical or endocrinological cause of your dyspareunia (pain with intercourse). All the best.

See doc: There are other causes of pain at the vaginal opening. Sometimes it is a simple as recommending more foreplay (or using lubrication). Sometimes it is an infection or skin condition. Sometimes people need physical therapy (pelvic floor pt).
