Human Blood: It is very unlikely there was human blood (other than your own) in your mouth. In addition, you could have been mistaken regarding what you tasted. Your gums may have bled or you may have bitten your cheek or tongue by accident.

Cheek bite: Most likely you bit your cheek and this is what you tasted.

Gingivitis : Bleeding gums, human blood taste, can be a sign that you are at risk for, or already have, gum disease. The bacteria and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless toxic “plaque” on teeth causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed. This is a serious problem, which should be checked by a dentist. The good news is that this condition is curable. Call your dentist today!
