You need to see a healthcare provider that specializes in pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction to assess the problem. It could be a hormonal problem (birth control maybe), a skin issue, a muscular issue, emotional stress, etc. Sex should be fun and emjoyable, with no fear or pain attached. The earlier you address the issue the better.
It is hard to say without assessing the muscles. Commonly the muscles affected by vestibulodynia are the superficial transverse perineum, pubococcygeus, puborectalis b/c they are close to the vestibule; however, it could be any of the pelvic floor muscles b/c they are so close together. It would be best to see a healthcare provider. My book, Heal Pelvic Pain, has a good illustrations with explanations.
