Just got my braces off and have noticed my gums are pretty puffy so I've tried to really amp up my brushing modes?

My gums have gotten better but since I've started to brush more, longer/more therow...they've hurt more to the point where I don't want to brush in those areas because it hurts too much. It kinda although I doubt, looks like skin is coming off my gums. It look like there is small cuts on my gums as I brush and it bleeds when I brush in those areas. I'm a little worried so just wondering.
