Bad breath with bleeding gums

Hi doc, please assist in giving me some advice on my problem. I has a baby 4 years ago and ever since then, my gums started bleeding and my mouth has a very bad smell. I have been on medication as well as mouth wash, but it keeps coming back. Please assist as this is ruining my relationship and life.

Have a consultation (including xr-ays) with your dentist.
Gum disease is the usual cause of ths problem.
The xrays will determine whether a scaling is the treatment of choice of whether additional treatment is indicated as well
