Coital trauma: Not to be rude but it sounds like you & your partner might have been overenthusiastic 3 days ago, leading to soreness. You can try to OTC pain medications if it bothers you that much. Ice or cold compresses are typically recommended for injuries (warmth for infection). And plenty of time & rest. In future, consider taking charge of fun times to minimize risk of injury. If pain persists, go see doc
