Home pregnancy test?: It's long enough to susupect something's up. Try a home pregnancy test, then see your md. In addition, healthy gums do not bleed. You should see a dentist to see if you have gingivitis!

Pregnancy gingivitis: Due to the change in hormones during pregnancy, your gums will be more reactive, puffy and bleed more easily. Increased oral hygiene practices can decrease the gum tissue response and make more comfortable.

Pregnancy gingivitis: Pregnancy gingivitis is very common during the time you are pregnant. As your body goes through hormonal changes, it affects the gums as well. Sensitivity and bleeding are often a sign, and can be treated easily with proper home care and regular cleanings. Talk with your dentist or hygienist today!
