Aaarrrggghhhh I'm 26 weeks currently and already my hemorrhoids are unbearable!! I haven't even entered my 3rd tri!!!! They're HUGE, there's a few of them, they itch like CRAZY and are so uncomfortable!!!!!
I've been using the steroid creams since my first tri, but they barely help. it's not constipation that causes them, so stool softeners aren't the answer. I tend to have soft poop, but poop 2-3 times a day so I think it's the frequency that irritates the hemorrhoids.
Does anyone have any treatment suggestions that may help me? I read about sitz baths but we dont have a bath tub. I read about witch hazel, but not sure if it really helps, or if safe in pregnancy?
Pls help, it's gotten so bad that the itching even keeps me up all nite!!
