I am 22 years old girl. I have bleeding gums whenever I wake up from the sleep even it is half an hour or more. Suggest me ways to reduce it.

Dear lybrate-user, bleeding gums usually indicates inflammation of gums which is caused due to deposition of plaque and tartar over your teeth. At your age, harmonal factor too can play a role in gums bleeding but it just aggravates the bleeding due to plaque. You need to professionally remove plaque and tartar i. E. Cleaning of teeth aka scaling. After this, you may seek gynecological advise if seem necessary.
