Is it normal to get a bruised feeling down there 10 days after giving birth? Immediatly after having my LO I had mild discomfort & bleeding which went away pretty quick (bleeding is minimal now) Then over the past 2 days I've developed a constant bruised feeling & started using ice packs again to ease the pain. I tore during childbirth & had 3 stitches but up until now didn't really hurt. Now the whole area hurts (including clit area). Is this normal? Or is it possibly an infection? It doesn't look imflammed or anything it just really hurts.
