Does bleeding gums possibly mean PPH?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My gums have been bleeding very easily lately when I brush or floss my teeth, so I'm just wondering if anyone knows if that will increase the risk of bleeding too much after birth too?  Is my body trying to tell me that its in need of some nutrient or something?  Mostly I just want to know if I'm running the risk of PPH cuz my gums are bleeding easily.

That's a normal pregnancy symptom. I think I read somewhere that half of pregnant women get it. It's pregnancy gingivitis caused by hormones. My gums also bled and I did not experience more bleeding than normal with the birth and had no hemorrhaging post birth.
