Really? hm I have never spoken to my gp/ob about them, I've just gotten rid of some bloody (pun intended) ones, if they come back I might try medication as suggested above as these ones hung around for ages
I'm sure you're all dying to know the state of my poor bottom but thanks to you, I got soov, anusol and witch hazel and I am feeling MUCH more comfortable. They really are horrendous buggers!
I had one a few months ago. I tried the cream but it didn't entirely resolve the problem so my gp snipped out the clot. The local anesthetic was the worst part and recovery fine. I just got some bum wipes to make wiping gentler. Hopefully you won't get to that stage but if you do it can be dealt with fairly readily. (And a walk in the park after what you've been through, except for that whole showing the doctor your butt).
Pregnant for the first-time?
