View Full Version : Sorry everyone.........but haemmoriods!
I got haemmoriods (can't spell) in the last month of my pregnancy. They disappeared after my little ones birth, but alas have returned! Did anyone else have this problem and what is the best way to treat them. Not really sore, just there. I do have some gel that the chemist gave me, is that the best thing to use? I can't remember the name though (whoops, breastfeeding brain!). Any help would be greatly appreciated to get my bottom normal again (ewww...lol). :o
The creams tend to be the best, be grateful they are not painful, I have a family history of haemaroids, my father had surgery on his, but I tend to keep mine under contol with over the counter cream from the chemist, also avoid getting constipated and straining so eat plenty of fibre.
Ghastly things haemorrhoids. Drink plenty of water to start with.
You can buy Proctosedyl from the chemist and its the best stuff for haemorrhoids without going to the doctor. It has, however, a nasty little applicator that you have to poke up your bum :eek: (sorry, TMI, I know).
If (more TMI to follow, so turn away if you don't want to know), it starts hurting after you have been to the toilet, you could put some aqueous cream on the toilet paper. Gives a more gentle approach to wiping.
These tips I picked up from customers while I was working in a chemist. Customers have no shame and will tell us chemists girls everything......
dont feel alone hon :)
you should read a thread started awhile ago called - the dreaded 'H' word ( if you do a search for haemorrhoids through the search box it will pop up) - the thread did get a little side tracked (if I remember correctly) - but it was also a good giggle!!! - almost as good as the - a hairy topic- thread !!! :D
I think haemorrhoids are pretty much a fact of pregnancy... (I know that when I fell pregnant it was one of the first delightful things my mum told me about!!)
Here's the link to the other thread: The dreaded 'h' word (http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/forums/showthread.php?t=3397&highlight=dreaded+word)
I've found that those new sorbent/kleenex toilet wipes are just the thing for a fresher bot! :o Particularly if you have a sore one!!
Hmmm yes the dreaded H word!!!! You are so lucky that yours aren't painful!!! :eek: I only just got rid of mine & boy it was painful!! Hopefully it wont come back b4 I go into labour :rolleyes: .
I used Rectinol cream which had a mild anasthetic (numbed it) that gave me some relief. Thankfully it only lasted a week though!!
Oh & my Doc said raisng your bum higher than your body will help ( bit tricky though if yor 9 mnths preggers :rolleyes: LOL) as it makes the blood flow out of the area instead of staight into it! She said the best thing would be to hang upside down for a while!!! LOL But alas she couldn't see me doing that in the near future!! :p
What an awful problem to have! Mine have lingered on since my c-section in January! :eek:
Drink lots of water and metamucil.
You need to find out if they are internal or external ones. Its not very nice but you need to see your doctor to find out. He'll either reccomend suppositories or cream for it. Whitchazel ointment (from a health food store) can give some relief.
There is an op you can have but its not recommended until you've had all your children!
Good luck and I hope they go away! ;)
No there not very nice at all!! I got them after i had my son :eek: He was about 2 weeks old when i got them, my doctor told me that i was caused from the pushing, and straining while giving birth. My were very painful and used to bleed (sorry). My doctor told me to try and sit up straight while on the toilet and to use Anusol wipes which are medicated to help relive the pain. Good luck with getting rid of them, and by this thread you can see how common there are.
