If I consented to intercourse under duress, was I raped?

When I was in my twenties, I had lots of dates who insisted upon pushing things ahead quickly in terms of physical intimacy. Much more quickly than I would have liked. But I went along with it to avoid conflict. Was this date rape? I am having terrible problems in my current relationships, though I am now 39. I feel very threatened by sex and feel awfully ashamed and depressed afterward. What does this mean? What should I do?
