In brief: Vaginal Pain
The most important consideration is a careful medical history, speculum, digital examination, microscopic examination and culture of dna test for infection.
Simply treating the pain could be masking something that requires medical intervention.

In brief: Many possibilities
It depends if the pain occurs at rest, only with movement, only during sex, with or after urination.
Is it sharp, burning, throbbing? Are you pre or post menopausal? Is there any unusual bleeding associated? Causes can be vaginal infection, muscle spasm, nerve entrapment, urinary tract causes. The treatment will vary based on what is found.
