Hello, The bleeding tendency that you have mentioned appears to be very normal. I advise you to not be apprehensive and check repeatedly for blood. You're more likely to dislodge a 'well-placed' blood clot preventing further blood-loss. I also advise you to not to spit/gargle for next 24 hours. Regards.
Take a piece of sterile cotton, place it on extraction site ,and bite properly for one - two hour, swellow saliva, do not split or gargle, bleeding will stop.
You may take Homoeopathic Medicine Arnica Montana 200 one dose.
