In brief: Probably

Unsure why sex would hurt if you had c section unless related to surgical incision.
Need to discuss with GYN

In brief: Yes & no.

The lengthening of your labia should not be either a concern or a cause of your pain.
However, pain during consensual intercourse is NEVER normal. You should follow up with your gynecologist and find out why you're still having pain. Hopefully she will find something minor and treatable so that you can enjoy sex again.
