Painful intercourse: It is common for women of all ages to present to the ob/gyn with problem related to painful intercourse. You are not alone. You imply that you do not use condoms, so a latex allergy is probably not likely. Other problems could be related to "trauma" during intercourse related to vaginal dryness. The most common cause of this might be related to hormonal birth control. Talk to your ob/gyn!
