Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain bleeding from mouth that occurs at frequent intervals can be most commonly due to gum infection or Gingivitis..
Inflammation of gums caused due to infection can lead to bleeding as inflamed tissues have abundance of premature blood vessels that tend to bleed even on slight stimulation..

I would like to know a few more details before I can proceed towards advising you for treatment..

1.Do you experience bleeding spontaneously or it occurs commonly after activities like brushing, eating etc?
2.Is there any redness, swelling or soreness in gums?
3.Do you have any ulcers or sores in mouth?
4.Are you taking any long term medication or have any chronic illness?
5.Since how long you are experiencing bleeding?

Please revert back with the reply..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
