Infection vs tissues: Since you are older i would assume you've had the standard pelvic pain workup. If your doc are still guessing then you need to shift gears and began a wellness program, vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, and stretching. Think flesh=muscles/tissue and not organs with chronic pain.

Change positions: There can be several causes. Most likely it is anatomic; depending on size and where you hurt. Make sure you do enough foreplay to feel aroused, use lube (astroglide) and try different positions so it stays comfortable. If it hurts try something else. Sex should not be painful. If you have an abnormal discharge see your doc.
