About this symptom

Bleeding Gums/Nose

Mucous membranes, including your gums and nose, can become swollen and sensitive during pregnancy. As a result you may notice nose bleeds when you blow too hard or bleeding gums when you brush your teeth. You may also feel like you have a constant runny or stuffy nose. Also a result of higher progesterone levels during pregnancy, your gums may react more to the bacteria in plaque - sometimes referred to as "pregnancy gingivitis" (which affects about 50% of pregnant women).

Includes: Also includes swollen and sensitive gums
