my gums have always bled, a very very tiny amount of blood when i brush my teeth..i guess maybe from brushing too hard or something. well, lately i noticed they've been bleeding more...i haven't changed anything to make them do that. at first i thought maybe my teeth were shifting back (i had braces, years ago..and never really wore the retainer..bad i know) but haven't noticed any change in the way they look...it's the part of my gum that's between the two front teeth, and then two teeth to the left is bleeding too..but it's just those two spots...and it happens a little when i suck on my tooth, like to get something out of it, if that makes sense...what could this be??? i'm kind of concerned about it....oh, and i've been taking a prenatal vitamin and calcium supplement, but have laid off, i've simply been forgeting to take them.Answer Question

Get back on the vitamins. If you are prego you may just have to deal with it. That a common thing for pregnant women. Switch to a soft bristle tooth brush if you haven't already and don't brush as hard.

Ok. It may have something to do with being on your period. Try to notice if it happens again next time. Ask your doctor about taking iron too. That may help.
