Sore gum and bleeding

Hi ladies! Does anyone here experience gum soreness and bleeding?
Since around 20 weeks I have this lump on my gum and it hasn't subsided.
It's painless but when I brush my teeth I always bled. I changed to the softest bristle I could find but my gums still bleed each time I brush.

I was referred by my ob gyn to a dentist and I learned that the gum soreness is just an exaggerated hormonal reaction that some pregnant women experience. It might subside after delivery or I can opt to have it removed. I got checked for any infection and there's none. I just did a routine cleaning and was given a non alcohol oral solution mouthwash.

Yeah it is normal. I have had bleeding gums all the way through my pregnancy and only 9 days to go. You need to visit your dentist and ask for corsodyl daily toothpaste and get free miniature toothpastes or you can also buy this from any supermarket or chemist.  This toothpaste is protection for healthy gums and really helps during pregnancy. Hope this helps.

It's pretty common during pregnancy and safe to see the dentist for treatment. I had bleeding gums during the first trimester
