Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

Dyspareunia, or pain during intercourse can be caused by either something inside the vagina or outside in the pelvic organs. Inside the vagina some common causes are:
(1) Vaginismus or painful spasm of the vaginal muscles.
(2) Female Sexual Arousal Deficit. FSAD
(3) Vaginitis or infection.
(4) Perineal tear.

Outside the vagina some common causes are:
(1) Endometriosis.
(2) Ovarian Cyst.
(3) Uterine fibroids.
(4) Diverticular disease.
(5) Pelvic Inflammatory Disease’

All of these conditions need appropriate investigation. Sub-acute appendicitis is another possibility. In a word, you need to see a doctor.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
