Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be suggestive of infection, injury or inflammation post intercourse. It is difficult to comment on exact cause without examining you. If the symptoms persist for more than 72 hours after intercourse, visit your doctor/gynecologist for examination and tests to rule out chances of infection. Get started on appropriate treatment. If infection is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Look out for other symptoms like change in vaginal discharge color, consistency, or smell, appearance of itching or burning etc.
