Sometimes bloody gums can indicate something is wrong - like gum disease or plaque around the gums. Other times it may just be a matter of switching to a soft bristled brush and/or more gentle toothpaste (ie, switching from a whitening toothpaste to something more natural). If your periods are typically normal, it's very unlikely that you have a bleeding disorder. Sometimes people are just more prone to bleeding gums when they brush - the same way others are prone to nose bleeds.

If none of the above improve your symptoms, it's a good idea to see a dentist for a checkup and make sure all is well. That and a simple blood test called a blood count can make sure there's nothing wrong with your blood.

Thanks. I was thinking of making an apointment with the dentist. It wasnt a small amount of blood it was large maybe because i was grinding my teeth(my boyfriend says i do at night) if i have a tendancy to bleed in the gums.it could have been the reason but gunna see the dentist anyway
Doctor: Dr. J, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

It's a good idea to go. The dentist can also clean the tartar and plaque off your gums better than you can at home.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
