In brief: Yes

Kegel exercises can fatigue muscles just like other physical activity.
When the muscle fibers tear, which is a normal part of exercise, they can have inflammation and pain. As with any exercise, rest and stretching may help alleviate the pain, and exercising in moderation can help avoid as much pain in the future.
