Had a baby 6 weeks ago. Having pain in my pubic bone when I run - dr says it might be separated, gave me a referral to pt. Will it make it worse to run?

In brief: Maybe

Separation at the pubic symphysis can be painful and take time to heal.
You should start physical therapy and start off walking and ease into running. No pain no gain does not apply to this. Take your time. It has only been six weeks.
