In brief: Depends

Muscle spasm in the vagina, also called vaginismus, often causes pain when you have sex.
It is frequently the result of sexual trauma, either a physically or emotionally difficult experience, although sometimes an infection, variations in anatomy, skin disorders, or dryness in the vagina can also cause similar sensations.. Treatment with a sex therapist or other specialist can help with this issu.
