In brief: Not normal.

Need to see your doctor to determine the cause.
Women should not have painful intercourse from a hysterectomy. Hope this helps.

In brief: Dysparunea

If you are less than 6 weeks out from your hyst, you shouldn't be having sex yet.
This could be vaginal dryness from lack of estrogen or vaginal cuff pain. After hysterectomy you may loose a bit of vaginal length, especially in the menopause. Your partner may have to avoid deep penetration during sex. See a gyn for an exam.
