In brief: Gingivitis, perio

Sounds like gingivitis or a more serious form of gum disease called periodontitis.
A thorough exam by your dentist can determine the source of your bleeding gums. The dentist and hygienist can treat this condition or refer you to a periodontist if needed.

In brief: Soft brush

Use a soft brush, brush lightly including the gums even if they bleed, and use floss.
Over time, they will stop bleeding. Make sure to follow up with your dentist.
