I just had my first postpartum ob appt and I had what sounds like the same. i didn't notice mine till just a few weeks ago. I thought my discomfort was from my episiotomy which had probably already healed. Anyway, my ob said its a normal growth after giving birth. Which causes stinging, discomfort and could bleed a little. However she said if you don't treat it it could continue to grow. She applied a one time medication right then and there (no idea what kind of medicine) to the growth, which did hurt. But it was a one time application, she said it should shrink and fall off within 2 weeks. So, go see your ob or wait till your 6 week appt. Hope this helps.
