The hymen doesn't grow back.

The pain from sexual intercourse may have been from your hymen. However, many women are born without hymens or have their hymens erode away naturally, so it's not certain that that's the cause of your pain. Other causes can be a lack of arousal, a lack of lubricant, or friction.
