 1. The D was way too big

If the penis or sex toy that you're using is too large, it's possible that it could be causing some small tearing or burning sensations that you might not notice until later. Of course, this doesn't mean that you're doomed to feel sore after sex forever. If you're using a sex toy, you can just go down a size.  And, if your penis-having partner just happens to be particularly well-endowed, make sure you spend a lot of time on foreplay and don't be afraid to use lube.

2. You're using something you're allergic to

If you consistently feel a little sore in your vagina, particularly after sex, it's possible that you're allergic to something that you've been using down there.  This doesn't have to be anything sex-related, either, it could be condoms, detergent, soap, or anything else that comes into contact with your vagina is causing it some irritation. So, start paying attention to the things you're using to see if it makes a difference with your vaginal pain.

3. Poor arousal process

Spend more time on foreplay. If you don't have enough lubrication in your vagina when you have sex, this can cause a lot of friction that might cause some pain during and after sex. If you know you're spending sufficient time on foreplay and you still don't feel super wet during sex, try adding some lube into the mix.
