Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I got bleeding gums and blood come out from throat now and then and it is hard to spit while you are in train or work even I wake up I got some blood in my mouth I do not weather goes inside or not. What should I do in this situation? Does it break the fast?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1224/1223/M=10/1434)

In the blood which comes out from gum in the state of fast dominates saliva or it is equal to saliva or the taste of blood is felt and it goes down the throat definitely then fast shall break, though it happened in the state of sleep. If there is no confirmation of going it down the throat or its taste is not felt then the fast shall not break merely by doubt and probability.
أو خرج الدم من بين أسنانه ودخل حلقه يعني ولم يصل إلى جوفه ؛ أما إذا وصل فإن غلب الدم أو تساويا فسد وإلا لا ، إلا إذا وجد طعمه …… قال الشامي : ……. ودخل الدم إلى جوفه في النهار ولو نائماً فيجب عليه القضاء ….. (در مع الشامى 3/368)

Allah knows Best!
