I am suffering from gum bleeding. When I brush my teeth they start bleeding. Can you suggest me what I have to do?

Your gum has become infected by bacteria. Cause may be improper oral hygiene maintenance or anything which is best diagnosed clinically by a dentist. You need scaling to remove the infection followed by some medications to heal.
Get scaling polishing done by a dentist than brush twice daily especially at night massage gums.
Kindly get scaling done and use a gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.
Hello Lybrate user, first you should go for scaling n polishing. Use mouthwash twice daily. Use interdental brush n dental floss to clean the interdental areas. Use tongue cleaner to clean the teeth. Rinse with water after every meal. SOME PROPER DENTAL HYGIENE INSTRUCTION ALSO ARE AS UNDER 1. Brush twice, Make sure you clean your tongue while brushing 2. Use regular mouth wash every night before sleep 3. Pls do use floss. Make sure you clean your tongue while brushing, consume water frequently for every 2 hours, rinse your mouth after having food, brush twice a day, Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet, visit nearby dentist every 6 months once for a check up and you will find the good results.

Kindly use oral B ultrasoft toothbrush and hexidine mouthwash.
Bleeding gums indicate food lodgement in the gums, so a deep scaling and curettage is required in your case, see a dentist asap.
