Gum disease: This sounds like a classic case of gum, or periodontal, disease. This means you have an infection in your gums tissues and brushing in not enough to treat this. You need to see a dentist foe and evaluation and treatment.

Gum Disease likely: The most likely cause of bleeding gums is poor oral hygiene which results in inflammation and infection to the gums and supporting tissues of your teeth. The longer it persists, the more damage and the harder to treat back to a healthy state. There are also, although less likely, medical reasons for bleeding gums. See a general dentist or periodontist for an evaluation.
