Dryness: The reason most women in your age group feel the "jabbing" is due to vaginal dryness. Its also the reason you feel pain during intercourse. Try astroglide (not KY jelly) which is water based. Don't use saliva - that dries out and makes it worse. Also take it slow. You might need to have more foreplay before intercourse to become more lubricated.

No: Implantation doesn't occur until later, about a week to 10 days after sex. Three days after sex is too soon for implantation to be happening.
