You may be possible that you might have some type of vaginitis. There may or may not be other symptoms such as itching, unusal discharge, etc. It would be wise to see your GYN to rule out infection on your part. Birth control pills can contribute greatly to vaginitis, douching of any kind, antibiotic use. It is also very important to be fully aroused and lubricated before intercourse, because if not, the friction can cause irritation and burning. If this is a problem, you can use a personal lubricant (water based, such as KY Jelly). Even tampon use can cause this. It is also possible to have contracted and STD of some sort.
As you can see, there are many explanations for this problem. I suggest you be examined by your GYN.
