how do i stop my gums from bleeding everytime i brush my teeth ?
im 16 and they have bled everytime i brush my teeth all my life, i brush 1 or twice a day.

Have you tried flossing as well as brushing?
I used to get this bleeding as well, then I started flossing twice a day and it stopped.

This can have only 2 reason:
1. Old toothbrush with frayed ends
2. Infection of the gums.
Most likely it is the second option - Infection of the gums. This will require an appointment with the dentist for cleaning or scaling. This entails cleaning plaque and calculus / tartar from your gums and teeth. This is a very basic procedure and not painful at all.
Do not try and delay it as it will only become worse. You can use a mouthwash till the time you schedule an appointment to keep the infection in check.
Good luck

Sounds to me that you may have periodontal disease. You must brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss everyday as well. When you brush, do it lightly because you don't want your gum line to recede. You need to make sure that you are massaging that gum line with you tooth brush. Don't forget to brush behind your teeth, the back and the back of the back.
About flossing, don't just pop the floss in and out; you must go around the gum line so that you don't get cavities between your teeth because they have to chop out half the tooth to get to the decay.
When's the last time you've gotten a cleaning? Schedule an appt. with your Doc. to get to the problem.

I would floss/mouthwash if you're not. If they are bleeding, you might want to try gargling some hydrogen peroxide. (Of course, do not swallow this stuff). It actually seems to hurt less than normal mouthwash to me, probably because your mouth is already wet so it wouldn't sting because it got wet.

You definitely need to floss. Floss once a day and in a couple of weeks you will notice a huge differerence. You should also schedule an exam with a dentist so they can verifythe extent of your gingivitis and quite possibly periodontal disease. Healthy gums will not bleed when simply brushed or flossed. When you do start flossing you will bleed and your gums will be uncomfortable but you need to do it anyway or you risk severe bone loss around you teeth that will cause them to xome loose and maybe even eventually come out. Periodontal disease has also been linked to heart conditions and stroke. It is reversible except for the bone loss. When you go to the dentist you should also ask them to show you the proper way to floss.

do you floss everyday? My dentist told me one of the cause is lack of flossing

Well they bleed when you actually brush the gums hard or from inflammation. The inflammation would be from plaque. You can get rid of plaque by cutting down on stuff like fizzy drinks and crisps and brushing teeth more. :)

first of all try brushing lightly and for longer so that you still clean them but if that doesnt work then i'd seek dental help.

What kind of toothbrush are you using? Be sure you get the ones with soft bristles.

Bleeding gums is never good. Please discuss this with your dentist. It sounds like you are not flossing. Brushing is simply not enough. You must floss the proper way. There are plenty of sites on the Internet to help you learn how to do it right. Are you going to the dentist twice a year? Keep up with the appointments. If you start flossing TODAY you may find that your gums bleed a lot less often.
