  • No it is completely normal. The vascularity in the gums increases during pregnancy due to the hormonal fluctuations. It is very important to have at least 1 professional clean whilst you are pregnant, continue to brush and floss twice a day. The bleeding should subside after delivery.

  • Lucky I have a soft tooth brush, will do gently thanks :)

  • keep brushing and flossing. brush gently as well

  • I am not fond of the dentist but health comes first!

  • It’s very common – they recommend seeing a dentist at least once in pregnancy. My gums bled in both of my pregnancies – especially after flossing

  • I had this problem really bad while I was pregnant too I couldn’t find any way to stop it apparently your supposed to see a dentist during your pregnancy as it is a very common problem :)

  • My teeth do this too. I would be interested to hear from other mums.
    Good luck with your pregnancy.
