I don't know if I'd call this insight, but I do know that my experience in both pregnancies was that my oral health was suffering- bleeding gums, like yours. And I also know that everytime something changed during our breastfeeding I'd get a major hormonal shift- especially when nursing ds#2. I'd conjecture that yes, hormones during pregnancy contribute to bleeding gums and that maybe hormonal wierdness during breastfeeding could contribute along the same lines. Sure seems to have an impact on every other system in my body, anyway.
