If flossing hurts should you stop?

Faviann Q.
It's normal that it hurts/bleeds if you don't do it often. It has gotten sensitive because of the bacterias that developed with the help of the food residue. After maybe a week of flossing, bleeding should stop and the gum should be must less sensitive.

No. You should go to your dentist to find out why or learn the proper way of flossing. Other alternatives such a water picks exist as well to help make this a habit.

Yes absolutely! That probably means you have swollen gums or achy teeth. A general rule: if something hurts and it's not supposed to, stop doing it. I'd suggest avoiding cold and hot drinks, and seeing your dentist.
