Pain during sex after episiotomy

I gave birth three months ago.  During the birth, I got an episiotomy (for very acceptable reasons) that was about 1/2" long and required 4 stitches to repair.  It was a midline, so it is directly in the center.  There is still pain at that site when I have sex, and sometimes a small amount of bleeding.
Is this something that will eventually stop?  I assume its from scar tissue not being as stretchy, but it worries me that I bleed because I'm damaging scar tissue and likely compounding the issue.
Advice?
