In brief: Vaginal pain
Partially intact hymen vs interstitial cystitis vs large male partner vs vaginal atresia.

There are many reasons for pain with intercourse and you should see a gynecologist to determine the exact cause.

In brief: Painful sex
Painful sex on penetration deserves full gyn exam-there are many conditions which contribute to this condition.
Organic defects-like narrow introitus or opening, vaginismus or spasm of the pelvic floor muscles on attempt at penetration, atrophy of vagina, lichen sclerosus -a skin condition which affects vulva and causes narrowing and contraction of the skin around vagina, infections like yeast, hpv.
