HI,
Bleeding gums can be because of deficiency of vitamins especially vitamin C. Also poor oral hygiene, infection in the gums can cause bleeding. Hence gentle brushing, use of mouth washes and taking of supplements of vitamin C and multi-vitamins will help. Consult your Doctor. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
