Need details: There are basically two kinds of pain during sex. One is pain associated with deep thrusting, which may have an abdominal cause, like adhesions. The other is vaginal pain, usually the result of chafing from inadequate lubrication. See your Gyn for evaluation--at your age you might require hormone replacement therapy.
